Introducing Kathy Kottaras

I am originally from Chicago, Illinois, and I currently live in the Los Angeles area. Since completing my M.A. in English at the University of California, Irvine, I have been  teaching writing and yoga in Southern California. Before becoming a mom, I taught high school English for nearly seven years, during which time I received the 2004 Bravo Award for Excellence in Teaching from the Los Angeles Music Center. I have been honored by having my work included in several publications. I was a regular contributor to the print and blog editions of edible Los Angeles, and I also have work published in The Edith Wharton Review, ReadWriteThink.org, YES! Magazine, Tiferet: A Journal of Spiritual Literature, and the anthology Mamas and Papas: On the Sublime and Heartbreaking Art of Parenting, published by City Works Press.

I am deeply interested in the link between the contemplative and spiritual practices of yoga and meditation and the writing process, and how we move our words to express these personal quests and journeys. I am also a yoga teacher, a doodle-artist, an iPhoneographer, an active gardener, an everyday chef and a wanna-be urban homesteader. Having grown up in Chicago, where I watched my father toil to bury his fig tree during the winter months, I am especially in awe of my arugula and Swiss chard, who laugh in the face of wind and hail.
