Kirsten Amann (better known to friends and clients as Kitty) is an ACE-certified personal trainer, registered yoga teacher, and certified reiki practitioner. Kitty found her way to fitness in her mid-twenties though yoga. What began as a break from the treadmill developed into a weekly habit and a deep fascination with the mind body-connection.

The quest to tackle the most physically challenging yoga asanas inevitably led Kitty back to the gym. Previously intimidated by the weight room, she discovered strength training as the key to transforming her practice.

Bubbly. Peaceful. Happy. Experienced.

With 15 years of experience in the food and beverage industry, most recently as brand ambassador for a popular liquor brand, Kitty is accustomed to the challenge of balancing work, play, and wellness. She strives to meet clients where they are and help them make small changes that amount to big results.

Whether teaching yogis to balance, conditioning with cardio, or helping weightlifters learn to improve their results with flexibility, she incorporates multiple modalitites to create well-rounded programs for her clients. Kitty is thrilled to be part of the esteemed team at Saldare.

I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to an Irish Mom and an American Dad. After nine years of living in the US, we moved to Ireland where I lived until 2003 when I returned to America with my wife and two children.

Throughout my life, I've been fascinated with the martial arts and trained with some of the world’s most renowned masters of Japanese Karate and Jiujitsu. Yoshihiko Iwasaki, Masafumi Shiomitsu and Tatsuo Suzuki were huge influences in my life. In particular, Master Shiomitsu who inspired me to follow my path with courage and determination. These men told me that if I wanted to master martial arts, I must practice the form of Zen meditation called “Shikentaza” or “focused sitting” which I practiced daily during my teens, through college, and throughout my business career.

I was a quiet, somewhat shy, un-athletic teenager. But I pushed myself to compete in Karate tournaments despite my fear and anxiety. Karate tournaments in those days were not the controlled game they are today. You stood an excellent chance of breaking an arm or even losing your teeth. The training at the Dojo leading up to a tournament was even worse. The fighting was bare-knuckle, bloody and brutal. It was my meditation practice that helped me survive and to develop the right mindset to become Irish National Karate Champion and European champion on several occasions.

As a young man, I was hungry to learn everything I could about meditation. I studied Zen with Alain Liebman Roshi of Taisen Deshimaru’s Soto Zen lineage and Bhakti Yoga with Prithu Das of the Vedantic tradition. I also studied Tibetan Buddhism and received initiation from Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, abbot of the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. I was very fortunate to have received personal instruction and guidance from Claude Anshin Thomas, a student of Thich Nhat Hanh and Tetsugen Bernard Glassman of the Zen Peacemaker Order.
