Kate has a degree in whole-foods based nutrition from Bastyr University in Seattle. Upon graduating, she expanded her education by becoming an esthetician to understand the relationship between skin health and nutrition.
Katie is also a certified yoga instructor for children and adults. She pursued her dream of completing a yoga teacher training at the Samarya Center. The foundation of this training was based on the belief that yoga is for “every body.” She then completed her children’s yoga training through Karma Kids Yoga in NYC, as well as “Yoga in the Preschool Classroom” and “Yoga for the Special Child” to work with children with special needs.
Kate has studied under Sierra Bender, founder of Goddess to the Core, and is an Inside Out Workout Instructor. This is part of the Sierra Bender Empowerment Method. This method empowers women to face their fears, awaken their spirit and redefine what it means to thrive in the world. It's an opportunity to stop, look, listen and feel what is going on spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically in the body. It is part physical workout, part yoga practice, part spiritual reflection. It is designed to give you tools to challenge, work, heal and treat your body.
