REVIEWS & MEDIA
"Usually I do yoga online at home. When I visit a friend, I will go to a studio as a guest. I came to Kat's restorative yoga class at the pond during a summer visit with my friends in Topsfield, MA. I am grateful to have met Kat because she was so warm and welcoming!
I loved how she checked that I had proper alignment, and described how to do each pose. She incorporated essential oils and beautiful music with the practice.
Most important, Kat had a wonderful light. She shines so bright! She's the kind of person you hope you meet and know.
Her yoga class left me feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed. I would look forward to yoga with Kat on every visit to MA.
I'm grateful that I could join her restorative yoga virtually on Sunday evenings from my home in NJ, even though my friends are far away in MA. We were all doing yoga together from a distance. And it still feels just as special and personalized as the in person classes. I love this so much, I've been sharing it with so many people!
The light in me honors the light in you. Namaste."
"I love Katmula Wellness! I began attending the children's programs as a nanny with the children in my care. The children's classes are the perfect blend of silly ridiculous chaos and teaching mindfulness as a tool to young learners. I highly recommend the children's programs!! I've even attended a wonderful birthday party hosted by Katmula and everyone had a blast!
During the Covid-19 Pandemic Katmula Wellness offered socially distanced restorative classes outside at Hoods Pond. This was my first experience with adult classes and it was absolutely incredible. Katmula wellness goes above and beyond for their community. It's not just a yoga class, it's an entire experience. Kat makes wonderful playlists that I enjoy outside of class times and is very savvy with essential oils. She's begun doing oil pick ups since everyone is practicing from home. I can't imagine starting my week without Katmula Wellness' Sunday night Restorative Yoga class. I can not recommend Katmula classes enough!
"I love this place!!! I consider myself to be very lucky that I have found a place where I can practice yoga, and my children can as well. There are adult classes, classes for kids, family classes, and even date night drop off events. I would be totally lost without this place and my kids would be too. They have gotten to know so many other kids and they love Miss Kat! I highly recommend both the adult and children's classes."
"I was so excited when Kat started a prenatal yoga class in Topsfield! Not only is she super knowledgeable, she is a FANTASTIC yoga instructor.
I instantly felt comfortable in her class and have learned so much in the few short weeks I've been attending her prenatal and restorative yoga classes. I HIGHLY recommend anyone of any experience (mine was very minimal) to attend her class.
You'll feel so great you took the time to do something good for yourself and your baby!"
"Last night's detox yoga was fantastic! I slept like a log and feel great this morning, too!"

At KatMula Wellness in Topsfield, yoga is not just yoga"
Through her Topsfield studio, KatMula Wellness and Yoga, Kathryn Larson promotes the many benefits of a regular practice.
For Topsfield’s Kathryn Larson, yoga isn’t just yoga. The nurse practitioner and mother of three young children, loves teaching yoga while also promoting its many benefits, including relaxing and calming the body.
“I believe that to achieve overall optimal health goals, we have to learn to find our own personal mind/body balance,” Larson said.
Larson is the owner of KatMula Wellness, 30 Main St., Topsfield, located within The Studio, in the Topsfield Village Shopping Plaza and right next to the International Martial Arts Academy.
“We can’t push ourselves constantly, ignore our health, and then use bandaids and medication to self correct,” Larson said. “We [as a society] need to practice more preventative care, more wellness-based practices that prevent common problems before they happen, such as high blood pressure, obesity, anxiety, depression, migraines, stress, back pain, arthritis and sports injuries.”
Larson’s studio serves a varied clientele, with classes ranging from post natal, to yoga with aromatherapy, to a morning class for families with young children. Reiki, mindfulness and wellness are incorporated into her programs. Larson also offers private yoga/reiki sessions tailored to specific health care needs, birthday parties, and networking events.
She also holds many different pop-up events every month, including various kids events and Tween Yoga Club events. With Rosie Realtor of Topsfield, she hosts “The Future is Female” monthly speaker series on leadership and networking for women.
Stressing that her classes are not just yoga, Larson provides a community space that offers many different options for learning and practicing wellness- and mindfulness-based practices. She welcomes not only pre- and post-natal moms, but also adults, teens, tweens and children, to come together in a space that is comfortable and not intimidating.
“I am a board certified nurse practitioner, specializing in high risk obstetrics, and a certified hatha yoga and prenatal yoga instructor,” said Larson. “I have many years of experience in medicine, as well as practicing, and now teaching, yoga.”
“Wellness is a practice. Why shouldn’t we practice together,” she said.
