Kate first found yoga during a time in her life that she was very disconnected from her body and living entirely in her mind. Yoga gave her the opportunity to reconnect to her body, and shift her perspective into a more embodied state. Yoga has instilled in Kate a deep trust of herself through inversions and arm balances and she encourages the same trust in her students of their own selves.
Kate initially came to New York to pursue her Master’s degree in Middle Eastern Studies from NYU. While studying, she dove deeper into her yoga practice and eventually decided that she wanted to try her hand at teaching. Kate is a 500-hour teacher. She received her 200-hour and 300-hour teaching certifications from Yogamaya. She is also prenatal certified.
Having grown up with plenty of injuries, Kate understands the care that goes into practicing with our bodies. She teaches an alignment-based vinyasa flow that will send you inward to connect with your body. She encourages her students to use props and the wall to help support and deepen their asanas. You can expect a good stretch and a challenging but nurturing practice in Kate’s classes.
Yoga has become a grounding force in Kate’s life and she believes that through yoga we can use and explore our bodies as a means of making space in our life for the things we love.
