After the birth of her third child, Katy started on a path of self-exploration. As life was changing rapidly, she searched for her deeper purpose. This exploration became physical and spiritual at the same time and then she went to a yoga class. Realizing there was so much more to this lifestyle, down the rabbit hole she went.
Years passed and several trainings later she has emerged with education in multiple styles, including prenatal yoga. She was inspired most by the prenatal trainings, and from this inspiration came the birth of the Shanti Mom Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. Years after the birth of her last child, she knew there was a better way to prepare for birth. Through the Shanti Mom Program, she has been able to share this fresh perspective with many others.
She recently relocated to beautiful La Grange, KY (just outside of Louisville). She couldn't possibly have done all this without the love and support of her amazing husband Bob and four kids! She would be amiss to not mention her gratitude for the continued yogic teachings her human and fur children offer daily!
Katy Stahl has passed the trusted Shanti Mom torch to Natasha Kohorst and lives happily in La Grange, KY with her beautiful family.
“My own personal growth came to me on my 40th birthday when I was given a cane to help me get around after a double hip replacement surgery. The second surgery did some nerve damage and caused a difficult road to recovery. Throughout the long road towards recovery, yoga gave me back the life I missed. One of my passions is travel and yoga has helped me regain the strength to enjoy travel again. I have walked the hill to Dracula’s Castle, in Romania, hiked the jungle trails in Hawaii, and went rock climbing and horseback riding in Wyoming. Along this beautiful journey I decided that I wanted to share my story and guide others to learn this beautiful art of Yoga. I have earned my 200 hour teacher training through the beautiful and sacred Grace Tree Yoga Studio and White Lotus Home in West Chester, Ohio. During this process I fell in love with working to inspire and support women during their pregnancy. To help honor the sacred process of motherhood. I am a wife to a wonderful supportive husband and a mother of three beautiful adult children. I have been in Cincinnati for 15 years after relocating from Costa Mesa, CA. Cincinnati has become my home; I am a proud Moeller and MND Mom. I love all that our beautiful city has to offer. I hope to help guide you during your practice.”
