Kathy Kacena

Kathy is the owner/director  and the inspiration of Yoga Samadhi Columbia Gorge. Before moving to the Gorge in 2005, kkstudioashe was co-founder/director of Yoga Samadhi Atlanta, Georgia. Kathy’s teaching style is warm and welcoming.

She combines traditional active yoga poses balanced with yin style poses, which are long held passive stretches that work deeply to open connective tissue.

By offering pose options and individual attention, Kathy makes her classes accessible to all skills levels.

Kathy has been teaching since 1999. Her training includes:

  • Viniyoga apprenticeship (Krishnamacharya /TKV Desikachar lineage), Pierce Program, Atlanta, Georgia
  • Yoga Alliance 200-hour registered yoga teacher certification, Peachtree Yoga Center, Atlanta, Georgia
  • Yin Yoga training with Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers
  • Vipassana meditation with Phillip Moffitt

When Kathy is not teaching she enjoys walking, hiking, cooking and spending time with her family, friends and especially her GRANDCHILDREN!
