Kathryn Flynn

July 27, 8:30am - 10:00am EDT. Hosted at Zibi

part of a series on Intention


About the speaker

Kathryn Anne Flynn was in brand marketing for some of the world’s biggest brands, until a twist of business-fate led her to becoming a full-time yoga teacher. Her completely unintentional shift in career gave rise to heightened self-awareness, kindness, and greater calm–and not just because of the stretchy wardrobe.

Living with intention is about balancing the ability to be personally powerful and a powerful force for good in the world. This talk introduces you to these ideas, exploring how the journey inward is critical to being intentional in your outward actions. No yoga pants required.

Kathryn Anne Flynn is an old soul—a smart, warm, and occasionally humorous Ottawa yogi, recognized for her articulate and thoughtful voice in writing, podcasting, and teaching on yoga and meditation. Kathryn is known for weaving together philosophy, anatomy and Ayurveda (yoga’s lifestyle science) to illuminate the complexities of these fields for practitioners and teachers alike. Students of many generations call her their teacher, drawn to her inclusivity and authenticity.

About the theme:
If you look closely, you can see the intention behind the action, a project, or a sassy tweet.

Intention is palpable. A hand-written thank you resonates in our hearts more strongly than an email. One person standing for something pales in comparison to a community fighting for something. Beautiful work is not on accident. Beauty grows from the seed of a clear intention.

How do we get better at setting clear intentions?

The same way we improve at anything: with practice, self-awareness, feedback from friends, and learning how to show up more wholeheartedly.

This month’s global exploration of Intention was chosen by our Nashville chapter, and illustrated by Nik Daum.
