    This review is from: Aim True Yoga (DVD)

    I’ve been a yoga lover and practitioner since I was a little girl, I even did Kundalini yoga teacher’s training just for the experience of it all. But good old Hatha keeps me coming back time and again as well. I own approximately 30 yoga DVDs and love to see what’s new and interesting out there so I continue to add to my lovely collection, and I have to say this is one of the most exciting, fresh perspectives on a sacred ancient art I’ve seen in ages.

    Kathryn’s personality is incredibly engaging and she has an almost childlike contagious passion for the practice while also possessing the natural ability to encourage and inspire without pushing too hard, without intimidating. She can float through the air like a true Asthanga yogi and balance in all those wonderful pretzel shapes, but when she tells you that she was once a first timer like you, mesmerized by her teacher and starting at square one you believe her. And that is incredibly inspiring.

    This DVD is a bit fast-paced, it’s not a “light some candles and drift off into space” type of practice, but it’s not a practice that feels like a “workout” either, it’s far more interesting and playful than that. While this DVD won’t expect anyone to do arm balances or master inversions what it does do, rather brilliantly actually, is get you to practice approaching those things without the inherent fear that comes along with them so that eventually you will grow past that and open to the experience. She does this by incorporating movements that would enter into or begin an arm balance or inversion without actually going there, and anyone used to those can tell you it’s really starting out with those types of poses that’s the toughest and it’s mostly a mental challenge because it’s new and it pushes some little fear buttons. But when you play around with just starting to set an intention towards them, allowing yourself to back off and do it again and again, it ceases to be scary and starts to be really invigorating and exciting because suddenly, miraculously, you start to believe that you really WILL one day find yourself in crow or headstand, etc. Not on this DVD, but this DVD will certainly be a stepping stone towards getting you there if you embrace it.

    For example, while in downward facing dog she has you do little hops, or raise one leg up and slightly hop off the ground with the other foot – just enough to let you see that you can do that much, and you will not fall or hurt yourself, so each time she sneaks that in again, it feels easier, and easier. And whenever she includes these preludes to latter more advanced poses, she does it in such a relaxed, easy manner it flows and makes it all feel like yogic recess.

    The DVD includes two classes; a 25 minute “beginners” class and a 45 minute “authentic” class, but I can tell you as a lifelong yogini with a sporadic practice that the beginners session is perfect for a shorter morning practice or a way to get some solid yogatime in under half an hour, which you can fit in almost anytime. The beginner class is safe and really gets the energy flowing and the heart pumping while still being very grounded. The longer session has lots of bells and whistles, including her unique archer series that really works the legs, the core, the arms, gets you focused and garners a sense of empowerment only archer poses can give you. Then she challenges you with some unique guidance on half-moon pose, and guides you through a one legged balancing pose with movement that is really a blast! Sure, you might feel wobbly and have to modify like crazy at first, but she always reminds us to keep a healthy sense of humor about yoga and that as long as you’re feeling something good you never need to worry about what it looks like. That reminds me of the things Bryan Kest often says, another favorite teacher of mine who emphasizes the importance of keeping breath long, slow and deep and letting the pose conform to your body rather than pushing the body to try and look like someone else in the pose. Sure, form is important for safety and for getting the most out of a posture, but regardless we will all look different in the same poses and that’s the beauty of it really. So Kathryn’s philosophy to keep it lighthearted while staying focused is a unique and wonderful teaching that can work wonders when taken off the mat and into our lives as well. :)

    She includes a lovely separate segment that focuses on some of the more commonly challenging poses and breaks them down to make them more approachable and less intimidating than I have ever seen.

    This is not an austere, quiet, mellow practice so if that is what you are looking for another DVD would better suit you. If you need a heavy handed spiritual side to your yoga there are other DVDs and teachers who present that naturally as well; Kathryn clearly has a lovely spirit and shares that in her teaching but you…

    Fun Vinyasa Practices, September 2, 2011

    I came across Kathryn on Yogaglo where she has online classes and liked her fun and challenging approach to vinyasa and her love for arm balances which I love as well. I tried Authentic Flow which is the intermediate 45 minute practice on this DVD and liked it a lot, it really packs a punch in this short time. It starts with a warm up of some down dog – chaturanga – cobra vinyasas and some sun salutations and then some core work on your back which was very nice and a little challenging and includes boat and half boat pose as well as some others. There’s also cool vinyasas with side plank variations and warrior one, warrior 3 to high lunge and revolved lunge and a cool archer sequence where you aim an imaginary arrow in warrior 1, 2 and extended side angle . Other poses include half moon and crow, half standing splits with some kicking as a prep for handstand, pikes, forearm stand prep and 2 rounds of wheel , it ends with happy baby , lying twist, Paschimottanasana, and double pigeon. There’s a short to non existent shavasana but you can stay longer on your own of course. The 25 minute beginner includes the more basic standing poses and easier variations of some poses like side plank with the top leg on the floor. There’s also an 8 minute yoga pose tutorial that includes good explanations and some tips on shoulder placement, pikes , crow , half moon and tripod headstand. There is also a link to a nice 10 minute core work which is actaully 5 minutes. Overall I really liked it and Kathryn tips during the practice are helpful and her explanations are amusing at times. I hope she’ll come up with some more DVD’s in the future that includes more fun, challenge and arm balances. (:

    I actually joined Yogaglo simply so that I could experience a “class” with Kathryn and I have been hooked every since. Kathryn has a style which is distinct and unique. She is not all fluffy/spiritual all the time…in fact she is great for the more aggressive, athletic yogi’s. This is not to imply that her flow has no connection to spirit or mind/body as I do find her to be deeply connected and very good at conveying what is necessary. She is not constantly reminding you to connect with breath or spirit or any of that and while there are some days that I want a practice that does place more focus on the mind/body connection I love Kathryn for when I want to sweat and build muscle and strength.

    I consider myself to be an avid practitioner of yoga. I have had a steady practice for the last 7 years. I find that even her beginners flow is definitely challenging and gets the heart pumping. Her intermediate flow is definitely a whopper and accomplishes what some fail to do in even a 90 minute class and hers lasts just 45 minutes which is perfect from this work from home mama of two.
    I am so glad that I purchased this disc and cannot wait to see how her teaching continues to unfold. This is definitely a must buy for those who are looking to add to their collection of at home sequences, want to tone and build strength or simply want to relish in Kathryns enjoyable, comfortable and affable teaching style. Thanks Kathryn!
