About Us

KASA Yoga and Wellness

was established in Old Worthington in July of 2016.  Our intimate and nurturing yoga and wellness studio was created by Worthington mom and yoga instructor, Katherine Yannucci, as a home away from home, offering yoga, reiki, ayurveda, meditation, and workshops.

Founder/Owner:  Katherine G. Yannucci

Kathy, also known as KATICA, began her yoga journey in the fall of 2000 at the Dharma Yoga Center in New York City after being diagnosed with hyperthyroid.  While working full-time as a Fashion Designer, she started practicing yoga twice a week in order to counteract the symptoms of her thyroid condition.

In January 2004, Kathy’s love for yoga led her to enroll in a teacher-training course in Miami, Florida.  Kathy taught at local studios and spas in Miami, while also implementing “Yoga for Lunch” into the corporate world.  In addition, she taught private clients at their homes and businesses.

In November 2005, Kathy moved to Columbus, Ohio.  The first thing she did upon arriving was to take a tour of the city to find all the local yoga studios.  She has taught at McConnell Heart Health Center, local studios, country clubs, and her home studio in Worthington.

Kathy has trained with Sarah Powers, Gary Kraftsow, Rodney Yee, Paul Grilley, Cyndi Lee, and many others.  Her fluid yoga style is sometimes referred to as a “dance", as she links one pose to the next with each breath.  Kathy's continuing studies and personal health experiences with Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, have led her to teach in a way that blends both these practices.
