Yoga by Kathryn illuminates a night of inner reflection

SAGINAW – Calming music swept over the dimmed room of the Saginaw Art Museum at the bi-weekly Candlelight Yoga class. Kathryn Spagnuolo, owner of Yoga by Kathryn, started offering the classes once she saw the beauty the museum has to offer.

“I like the atmosphere. It’s absolutely beautiful, and I think doing yoga at beautiful spots just helps to add an element of relaxation,” says Spagnuolo.

Spagnuolo became interested in yoga when she attended Michigan State University. After moving back to the area from Chicago almost two years ago, she started her business teaching in the Great Lakes Bay Region.   

“I started my business in the area two years ago. It’s my own business, but the business is me. I rent space and I move all over, so I’m like a traveling yoga instructor,” says Spagnuolo.

According to Spagnuolo, there was a shortage of yoga knowledge in the area. She does not want lack of knowledge to intimidate potential clients. Spagnuolo welcomes newcomers to her classes and does not push anyone past their own limits.

“It’s very new to people here, and everyone’s intimidated because of what they see on TV, which is a stick-thin person who looks like a model. There are different types of yoga. I think a lot of people get intimidated by thinking they’re not flexible, but they don’t need to be – yoga is for every body shape,” says Spagnuolo.

Candlelight Yoga in the Museum is $10 per person and is held every other Tuesday through May. Summertime classes are offered at the Saginaw Art Museum are held in the gardens. Along with Candlelight Yoga, Spagnuolo offers a variety of specialty classes throughout the year, including:

  • Yoga for Athlete Training

  • Yoga Parties
  • Yoga in the Park

Spagnuolo also specializes in regular yoga classes including:
