Kathryn Samaltanos, Co- Director of Seed Studio is a twice certified yoga/meditation instructor, holistic body worker, sound therapist and lifelong artist.
She has been teaching yoga and meditation to children and adults for the past 20+ years and loves to share her passion for connection, creativity and nature to students of all ages.

She knows the power that self acceptance and inner peace can bring to our lives and sees art as a healthy form of self-expression.
When she's not at Seed Studio, she is most likely on an adventure with the two who hold her heart, her wily son, Phoenix and their rascally little dog Yoshi.
