About KALOS Experience
KALOS is a heart-centered sweaty experience combining intervals of potent and repetitive functional movement balanced with meditation and stretch. Each experience focuses on increasing heart rate variability, breath awareness, self and community connection.

Julia is a clinically licensed psychotherapist and mindfulness coach. She is the “brain” behind KALOS and brings years of experience working with people “stuck” in negative energy states, weighed down by trauma, grief and stress to the design and philosophy of the KALOS Experience. At age 12, Julia self-diagnosed and sought treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. In college, she re-entered treatment for major depression with suicidal ideation. Working from the inside out herself, Julia is a case study in the power of physical movement paired with breathing techniques to master depression, anxiety and self-hate. Looking for a way to mobilize mindfulness and an outlet to express and teach others these mind/body methods, Julia found KALOS Experience.

Wendy is a registered nurse, yoga teacher and lover of movement. With over 1000 teaching hours, she is the “body” behind KALOS and brings years of anatomical study and application to the method and composition of the KALOS Experience. Suffering through arthritic hips in her late 30’s, she underwent bilateral hip replacements 14 weeks apart at the age of 41. Wendy taught herself how to rebalance her own body and use physical alignment to increase her power and strength as an athlete and a teacher. Wendy is quite literally a walking example of the significance of functioning training and movement with purpose. Looking for a way to synthesize the principles of yoga with intense cardiovascular activity, Wendy found KALOS Experience.
