Words of Kindness
Suffering from eczema and acne I have tried countless products and spent endless money on trying to find something gentle and effective for my sensitive skin. I am very cautious about what I put into my body and I pay the same respect to my skin, seeings how it’s our largest organ! The first time Katie gave me a sample of her soap I was hooked. Not only was it soothing for my skin but after a while my skin started to clear up and I felt like I had a more healthy and radiant glow. You see, not reacting to a soap is a big deal in my books! I love how the ingredients are all natural and how they produce such a nice, creamy lather. I also love how she is consistently playing around with different ingredients and scents giving a variety of options. I always look forward to what she’s cooking up next!
After a long week of driving and sitting in Toronto traffic going to Katie’s restorative class on a Friday evening was the perfect way to wind down and release emotional and physical stress. Her approach is very calming and soothing and I quite literally felt restored after one session. I go to yoga quite regularly but mainly attend the higher intensity classes. It’s easy to forget how important it is to not only decompress the body through longer poses but also the mind. Her spiritually guided words really put you in a tranquil state and leaves your mind and heart as ease. I especially love the prolonged savasana! Thank you Katie! <3. JB
When I first tried free to be soap, I was changed forever. The soap feels so soft on your skin and leaves no residue. The scent is not too strong but infuses once lathered with water. Being able to customize my soap with natural scents I most enjoy, every time it is used, it is enjoyed. AS
Katie is an excellent yoga instructor, who the girls instantly connected too. She offers something to everyone in her class, whether they are a beginner or a more experienced yoga practitioner. It takes a special talent to be able to grasp the attention of teenagers and keep them interested. If you are interested in learning more about yoga, I highly recommend contacting Katie.

I had an awesome experience with the 6 week yoga fundamentals! The prices were very fair, I learned a lot about each pose and the benefits; not the attention you would get in a large/busy/crowded class. I loved that we were encouraged to do our best with each pose but also given an alternatives to try. Katie has the most calming voice! She has such a calm & compassionate presence and this comes through in her teaching. Her style is perfectly paced, with clear instructions and just the right amount of yoga wisdom woven in. I left each class feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated.
As for the soap, I have nothing but great things to say. Lathers so well! I use it on my body & face. Excellent for shaving your legs, you will never need shaving cream again! I love that you can personalize your soap, I prefer to let the "soap master" make/recommend some for me, always some great new scents! TV
My experience with Katie has been eye-opening.... Not only did her classes help me begin a life-long pursuit of yoga, but her honest and organic teaching methods inspired me to become a more conscious and self-aware person in general. Until I began practicing with Katie, I didn't know what I was missing. MD
I have had the privilege of being part of Katie's yoga fundamentals program and loved it so much that I continued with the drop in classes. Katie's patience, kindness and carefree manner made her classes both fun and relaxing. I always left class feeling stronger, happier and with a clear mind. I would recommend anyone of any ability to take part in a class or workshop with Katie.
I also started using free to be soaps over the last year. They were all fantastic! I gave many of them out as gifts over the holidays, and kept a healthy stash for my own use over the past year. The soaps have a nice light scent and leave my skin feeling clean and soft. They are a favourite of my whole family! CW
