Kathryn was born and raised in Helena, MT. After graduating, she spent time in Washington and Oregon, but eventually moved back to her hometown, Helena. Kathryn discovered the Dancing Lotus Center shortly after returning to Helena, where she took her first Nia class. It was a breath of fresh air in the fitness world. Having grown up with dance, primarily classical ballet and jazz, she knew it was something that needed to be in her life on a regular basis and that she needed to share it with others. Kathryn completed her Nia white belt in 2010, and her OULA training in 2011. She has also completed her Nia Green Belt (October 2011) and Nia Blue Belt (April 2013). She teaches both Nia and OULA classes weekly. “I love to move! Dance is a total mind-body-spirit conditioning, which keeps us whole and in the present.”
