Kate is a certified yoga teacher (RYT200) within Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin.

Kate discovered yoga in 2009 after a physical injury led her to the practice. While the healing began with the physical body, the impact on the emotional and spiritual body made the practice stick. With Vinyasa being her main form of yoga, Kate especially loves to teach her variation called Mindful Flow - a vinyasa practice that combines meditation and sequences that encourage closed eyes to feel deeper into the body and the pose.

Kate’s practice is often on the road, as she is also an entrepreneur outside of her yoga teaching life. She incorporates her yoga practice in her hotel room, but also by trying new teachers and practices in every city she visits. Kate also runs a well-known wellness and natural beauty blog that focuses on non-toxic living, healthy recipes and yoga, called Living Pretty, Naturally.

My morning routine: Herbal tea and meditation. Grounding down before the day ahead is the best way I find balance.

The world needs more: Understanding and kindness

I believe in: The universe being on our side.

Love is: Our essence.

I can not get enough of: Avocados, ocean walks, green beauty products, adventurous vacations, gardening, raw food creations, journaling, naps and reading time.

Yoga is: the place of balance, wisdom and peace. As the Bhagavad Gita says: Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.

This year I would like to: Find more peace and self-love.

My mantra for life is: Always say “yes,” until intuition says “no.”
