Kat Lee Shull
Yoga Instructor, Therapy and Clinics
In 2006, Kat began attending the Iyengar Training Program at the Institute in Los Angeles, a 3-year, 500+ hour program. In 2011, she received the Introductory II level of certification as an Iyengar teacher.
Iyengar certification requires that you work with a mentoring teacher, and for three years she had the privilege of assisting Eric Small in weekly classes in Beverly Hills. Eric is a pioneer of therapeutic applications of Iyengar Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological issues. Currently, she studies with Isabela Fortes, and attend ongoing teacher training workshops with Carolyn Belko, Gloria Goldberg and Manouso Manos.
I am excited to share two new unique classes that I will be teaching on Tuesdays at 10am and Thursdays at 1pm!
Limited to 4 or 5 students per class, I will be working with you to build a sequence that addresses physical issues, stress reduction, relaxation, and other concerns you would like to work on in your yoga practice.
Unlike most modern yoga studios, these classes will not be me bringing a sequence to class and you adjusting the poses for your body. Instead, it will be your personal practice, a sequence of poses unique to you, which you will do each week with my guidance and assistance. (And I hope you will do at least one or two poses at home each day!!)
This is how yoga was traditionally taught – teacher to individual student – and I am so excited to partner with Mana Kai Wellness to offer this kind of class to you.
Each student will receive their own written and illustrated series of poses to work on in class (and at home). During class I will be there to answer questions, make modifications, perform adjustments to deepen your experience of the poses, and make your practice work for your overall wellness plan.
“Yoga means “union.” Mind, body & spirit joining. In addition to the myriad health benefits derived from yoga practice, I find it very nurturing. As a yoga instructor, Kat has the unique talent and skill to quickly assess the new student’s ability. She is challenging without being demanding, as thrilled with your progress as you are. She has endless patience and is quick to laugh. I enjoy her classes immensely.”
“Kat has been my yoga instructor for 6 years. I have watched her bloom into a very confident, knowledgeable and compassionate teacher.
She has the ability to assess the limitations of our bodies and adapt the poses to work for our particular issues. She pushes us but not to the point of injury. Her classes are a pleasure to attend and there is always laughter and positive energy in the room. Our class always loves it when she returns from a conference because she is so energized and excited about showing us what she has learned. She loves to share her knowledge and does it in an easy to understand manner.
Her class is pure pleasure and very addictive.”
“Be here now.” That is what I have learned from my yoga teacher Kat.
As I lay down my yoga mat and set aside all of my worries and woes, gather all my “yoga toys” (props) and I anticipate the BLISS of yoga practice. And down I sit… looking for my teacher’s cheery-bright smile as she gently nods in approval that class can begin now.”
