Santoshais a Sanskrit word that means the cultivation of contentment. It doesn’t mean the pursuit of joyfully skipping through life, it’s about being content with the good, the bad and the ugly in our day-to-day experience. The Santosha Life is about being connected to yourself and feeling good about it.
The Santosha Lifeis a boutique wellness company that offers authentic yoga, meditation, breathwork and retreats.
"I specialize in helping people cultivate more contentment in their daily lives in a welcoming (and fun) environment! My offerings can be accessed both online and in-person."
Kathy is a Toronto-based yoga teacher, breath coach and wellness explorer who specializes in helping people connect to themselves through movement and breath (while having a good time with great music in the process!).
Having hosted over 25 international health retreats over the years, Kathy, a self-proclaimed type-A in recovery, left the corporate world in 2014 to provide the ultimate energizing and balanced yoga and retreat experience for others.
Kathy’s Flow classes challenge all levels and incorporate creative movements that strengthen and lengthen the body while staying connected to the breath. Her stretch, yin and restorative classes weave mindfulness meditation throughout so that you leave feeling as though both your body and mind have been given a nourishing hug.
Classes are tailored to the students and include gentle hands-on adjustments and assists, inspirational music and an aromatherapy savasana massage.
When classes are held online, they embody that personal touch through verbal cues and encouragement. Connection, in whatever form, is key.
“My philosophy is to provide the space for each student to connect with their mind, body and soul so they finish class feeling simultaneously lighter and more grounded. I encourage students to push themselves to their personal limits, while not taking themselves too seriously. Smiling and laughter is welcome!”

"I have been running away from yoga all my life, seeking out new intense workouts to fulfill my need to sweat and feel whole. I was looking for something intangible, or so I thought. The day I walked into Kathy’s class, I didn’t expect to become transformed and grow so quickly.
Kathy’s ability to shine her light so brightly onto her students is warming, you will feel invited and accepted whether you’re a beginner or a floating yogi. I love, love the curated playlist and thoughtful movements, it’s a modern way of connecting and it works!
A natural teacher, Kathy, understands how to motivate and correct you to all the while inspiring you to work through the skills. Be ready, to be honest with yourself and to have some fun, you can’t help but smile after her class." Soo Kim Toronto, May 2020
