Kathy’s yoga journey began in a coffee shop. She was seeing a napropath for her back problems, but he made it clear she would need to take charge of her health with more self-care. He pointed her towards yoga and how it could help her.
Kathy was diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 21. Subsequent to her diagnosis, she experienced a ruptured disc, a laminectomy, another ruptured disc three years later, epidural steroid injections, multiple rounds of traction, two sleepless years due to back pain, spondylolisthesis (condition in which a vertebra slips out of proper position onto the vertebra below it), a procedure to place rods in her spine, and a screw breaking a vertebra in half and lodging in her spinal canal with her sciatic nerve wrapped around it. Her surgeon suggested more procedures, but Kathy had reached her limit.
Local residents Kathy & Jim Simonik bring their 20 years of yoga experience to Lake Zurich when they opened their second studio in the Village Green shopping Center at 729 W Route 22 on Sunday, August 24th. After building their yoga community 3 years ago in Arlington Heights, they decided to expand to the Lake Zurich community.
Thanks to everyone for all the referrals! You help the studio grow!
