And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
— Anais Nin

Just a few years after graduating from college, Kathryn Mitchem knew she wanted to make a shift from pursuing a more traditional career and follow her growing passion for yoga. She also had a strong desire to find a way to bring the sense of well-being achieved with yoga off the mat and into daily life. Through travels, time with Master Teachers, and graduate studies in East/West Psychology, she began her evolution as a yoga and meditation instructor and became a Certified Yoga Therapist. She then went on to train yoga Instructors while developing individual and group coaching programs for corporate clients as well as students from all walks of life. Kathryn then brought all of her passions together when she established, owned and operated a successful community center with trainings, classes and events in Evergreen, Colorado. 

Through many unforeseen twists and turns in her own life, she became a master at embracing change and using all of the challenges and struggles from difficult times to grow both personally and professionally. Inspired and motivated to help others through their own unexpected and challenging transitions, she now focuses on a broader audience through her writing, video programs, speaking and individual coaching programs. Kathryn is a Satori Lifestyle Coach who teaches tools from yoga and mindfulness incorporate the tools into daily life to create powerful, long lasting relief from stress and stepping into new possibilities and success.

She brings a sense of warmth and non-judgement to her clients both in person and online, and has a powerful way of providing comfort while also encouraging them to move through difficult transitions one small step at a time. From her years of experience as an instructor, social worker, coach, and mom of three, she truly cares for the well being of each person who reaches out for help and believes it’s important to customize the tools and lifestyle programs so that even the busiest people can fit the programs into their lives.
