Yoga has been an important part of Kate’s life ever since she took her first class in 2004 and got certified shortly after. Being an avid snowboarder and runner, yoga was there to keep her balanced as an athlete. “The more yoga I did the better my body and mind felt,” she says. Kate practices or teaches every day and respects all styles of yoga. She is trained to teach Bikram Yoga, hot Vinyasa flow, yin yoga, and partner stretching. When working one on one with a student or in a large group, Kate teaches with compassion while educating and motivating the yogis to go deeper; physically, mentally, or emotionally. When not in a yoga studio teaching, Kate coordinates and co-hosts yoga retreats around the world. Aspen Synergy has been a retreat provider for over 7 years and continues to bring students to exotic locations such as Hawaii, Bali, and Mexico. Kate loves to travel and meet yogis and teachers of all styles. She currently lives in Santa Cruz, California. Kate & Amanda have been a pleasure to work with over the last 5 years with many new retreats being developed!
