Let us help you learn to relax with the help of restorative yoga and gentle breathing techniques that are accessible for any person at any level.

Are you curious about what people experience when they are taking my classes? 

"I have been taking Yoga for more than four years. Over that time, I've probably had more than 10 different Yoga instructors. I can wholeheartedly say without a doubt, Kate Dessommes is the most compassionate instructor I have had. She goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable in every pose and if you're not she alters your position or gives you more support to make sure you are. Because of that I always look forward to going to a Yoga class that Kate is teaching. I come away feeling like I got the very best out of the Yoga session."

"Being a former combat Marine with a Purple Heart (2 tours, Vietnam), I have issues. The Yoga class is teaching me how to relax, with proper breathing and exertion it is making my body feel good. A win-win for me! The class is giving me a sense of well being, body, mind and spirit."

"I feel better because you seen me yesterday....a quote.... I do have less stress with the yoga and have been sleeping better. I was in the Navy (1965-1969)... 3 tour of duty in country.... I do have PTSD with what I have been thru.... You are great with us Vets."

"Total relaxation and deep breathing, feels so cleansing, instructor makes it a safe place to let go of stress"

Claudia Sterling Restorative Yoga Monday's at 6:15 Van Radyn 


"I just want to share with you that when I came to class today my legs hurt so much I could hardly sit comfortably for the class.  About an hour after class I was out running errands and realized I wasn't hurting and could get in and out of the car and walk so much easier than this morning.  I'm home now and did some chores and can sit and stand without a problem."
Susan Noack Chair Yoga Monday and Wednesday at 11am Juanita Pohl

"Kate is a true healer to all.  Through her yoga practice, she teaches the power of movement from the inside out with an open heart and mind, as all movement practice should be"  

Ahndine Mason Gentle Yoga Sunday at 4 SWCC  


"I've tried a yoga class in the past but found that the instructors didn't understand my unique issues with a prosthetic leg.   The Yoga for Amputees class has been a great experience for me and I have found that I really enjoy doing yoga. Kate is a great instructor and will find a way to make it work with whatever limitations you have."
