Registered Nurse, Yoga Instructor, Wellness Advocate
I'm a yoga instructor with a nursing background and aim towards helping individuals heal their bodies naturally with essential oils and yoga
Kate was drawn to yoga when she took a 6-week intro course in Ashtanga Yoga while in college. She immediately noticed a huge shift in her mental and physical energy. She became hooked and started practicing yoga on a regular basis. Currently she works full time as a nurse in the surgical setting which has taught her a lot about human anatomy and proper alignment in poses. In April of 2017 she completed her 200-hour YTT in the beautiful mountains of the Sacred Valley, Peru. She learned the principles of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga as well as what it means to be a successful instructor. She loves the freeing feeling after a yoga class and wants everyone she teaches to experience that letting go and releasing to align with their true self. She likes to have her students feel that they are being pushed physically but that at the end of each class they feel they have made more room in their lives for positive change.
As a nurse in a hospital I see many sick people- even though as a country we are spending billions of dollars into our health care system each year yet as a whole we are the sickest we have ever been. I strive for individuals to connect back to their bodies. I want individuals to try natural health solutions rather than using harmful products that could impose more of a risk on their health and create many unpleasant side effects.
Clients say I am Friendly, Loving, Gracious and Kind. After taking my yoga class students often say that they are looking forward to coming back. They describe it as having a renewed sense of peace and calm within them. The essential oils really help ground the student in the present moment by using aromatherapy to heal old emotions and release negative energy.
You don't need to be able to touch your toes for this practice or get into a headstand. This practice is really about slowing down the mind and giving yourself a reprieve from your hectic life. Using the breath as a tool to become present.
