Kate started her yoga journey in Philadelphia over ten years ago, where she first came to know and love the sacred space and community that yoga creates. After completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, she spent time living abroad in Spain, deepening her love of culture and travel. Understanding the underlying unity pulsing through our planet, she has dedicated her life to service, spending over seven years working for non-profit organizations. While living in LA, Kate completed her Holistic Health Certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. It was then that she took the leap of faith and booked a flight to India, completing her 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Certification through the Vinyasa Yoga School in Rishikesh, India. She has been trained in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga- asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, and yoga therapy. While in India, she also studied Reiki with a powerful teacher named Maayaa.
Kate’s unique training in India allows for her teaching to combine ancient yogic technique with modern understanding, creating a felt energetic experience of alignment and balance. She currently teaches all over Monterey & Carmel, California. Stay up to date on upcoming posts, classes & retreats at www.yogarise.org.
