It seems appropriate for us to feature Kathryn Budig, an internationally respected yoga celebrity. Kathryn is not only a wholesome beauty who graces the cover of several yoga magazines, and appears nude in those tasteful yet eye catching ToeSox ads in the pages of Yoga Journal, Kathryn is also a foodie.
Passionate about sharing her favorite recipes, cooking techniques and ways to keep your refrigerator free of junk and chemically toxic food, Budig is a great resource for keeping people like you and me healthy and fit. For example, her Lemony Chicken Quinoa Soup is a perfect vitamin packed recipe that helps combat the flu this time of year. Or, check out her signature Save Me Smoothie, a recipe that includes spinach, blueberries, flax seed oil and other fabulous nutrient dense food.
Kathryn has been featured on E!, Food Network, Shape and in The New York Times. She serves as the brand representative for ToeSox and is an ambassador for Pangea Organics, an organic skin care product company. She is working on her latest big project, “The Big Book of Yoga,” to be published by Rodale very soon.
To put the icing on this sweet cake of pure talent, my favorite aspect of this gorgeous yogini is her Poses for Paws foundation that she co-founded to raise money for animal shelters. She also donates a portion of her classes and workshops to this great cause. Kathryn’s own dog, a mix of a pug and a beagle named Ashi (short for Ashtanga, a path of yoga she studies) can be seen with her in several ToeSox ads across the country.
If you cannot make one of Kathryn’s classes in the Los Angeles area or attend one of her workshops around the world, you can find Kathryn teaching classes on YogaGlo, a website that offers downloadable classes to take at your convenience. In addition, her new video “Aim True Yoga” by Gaiam is available in stores now. It received a great review in the January issue of Yoga Journal. Her style is playful, spirited and non-intimidating as she offers beginner and intermediate options for everyone to enjoy.
