HI, I'M KATE.
My second mountain is all about yoga.
In my earlier years, I never would have guessed I'd turn into a yogi. I was not a dancer, a gymnast, or an athlete. In fact, I didn't even make my high school drill team. I was studious and stiff.
After a divorce in my 30s, one day out of curiosity I walked into a local yoga studio and was blessed by an outstanding teacher (Janice Gates) and a practice that would change my life.
Over the past 20 years, I have learned from many other expert teachers, including Mark Stephens, Judith Hanson Lasater, and Doron Hanoch. I meld this experience into my own unique supportive style, where movement is tied to breath and effort is balanced with ease. Both experienced and new yogis find I give them the challenge and the support they need to deeply enjoy the practice.
I am thrilled that I feel more vibrant and stronger at 61 than I did in my 30s.
I am a certified RYT-500 yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, and live in Sonoma County, California with my husband Jeff and Aussie Bear.
