Behind the Scenes of Katherine's Metro You Ph

June 6, 2013
Katherine Austin Wooley


Katherine Austin graces this month's cover of Metro You magazine, a monthly glossy women's magazine serving metro Detroit. Her story - about how dedication, authenticity and a desire to lift up others while lifting up herself - is an inspiring, universal story about doing good leading to doing well.

Here's the link to Katherine's cover story.

Check out some pics from behind the scenes of a fun photo shoot in April, which led to the gorgeous cover spread featuring Karma Yoga's founder and owner.

The photo shoot featured the following great talent: Karma Yoga publicist Lynne Golodner, of Your People LLC; fashion stylist Jessica Kocik, Kate Cibor of Pure Hair, makeup artist Carolyn Rusnak of Hanan, photographer Brett Mountain, Metro You founder and publisher Maria Savoy and Lexi Schaffer, of Karma Yoga.
