Kathryn (Kat) Lorusso is a Bikram, yin and Inferno Hot Pilates instructor. She’s also a college counselor and owner (with her husband, Joe) of a vegan snack food company, Thankful Foods: www.thankfulfoods.com

Kathryn literally fell into a Bikram yoga hot room 14 years ago after injuring her knee through running long distances. Fourteen years later, she’s a dedicated yogini that loved the practice so much, she went to training and now teaches at two other hot yoga studios in the metroplex.

In her spare time, Kathryn fosters greyhounds and doodles and has a home rescue pack, of 1 greyhound, two labradoodles and one standard poodle. She teaches plant based cooking classes for Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and also changed her life and health by going plant based after a breast cancer diagnosis 9 years ago.

Kathryn is grateful for every day that she can save dogs, cook plants, help young adults figure out their career paths and teach yoga. Life is good!
