Kathy 'Devi" McFadden (On Sabbatical Through 2017)
I discovered Hatha Yoga through the study of meditation. Hatha Yoga is an integral part of my spiritual practice. My teaching focuses on helping students nourish the body through gentle practices that include elements from Iyengar and Ashtanga Yoga.
“Yoga emphasizes a clean, healthy, and vibrant body, as the body is the vehicle by which higher consciousness is attained.” – Baba Hari Dass
In 2010 I completed my RYT 200-hour training with Yoga Educational Seminars, a yoga teacher training program founded and directed by Joyce Anue. I have taught at the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment in San Jose, Jikoji Zen Center in Los Gatos, and as a guest meditation instructor and hatha yoga teaching assistant at West Valley College in Saratoga. I am very excited to teach here at home in the Santa Cruz Mountains. In addition to teaching yoga I work full-time as a Senior HR Manager, I am an Executive Coach, and Meditation Teacher. I am passionate about helping others achieve their goals by improving their overall health and well-being.
