Kate has been practicing yoga since 2000, and would roll out her mat as a way to stretch following a workout, not yet aware of the deeper benefits of this practice in the years to follow. This ancient practice became so much more for her in working through issues around anxiety, the grief of losing her Father, and managing a lifelong battle with an immune disease - the healing benefits of yoga were undeniable.
After attending a yoga retreat on Wolfe Island in Kingston, Ontario with her husband -- an awakening occurred, and the desire to learn more, practice more, and share the unending benefits of this practice with others ignited.
Kate completed her RYT200HR in Hatha Yoga through the Yogashala studio in Waterdown, ON with Barb Leese. Since then, she has continued her journey as a lifelong student, in successfully completing a 40HR Fascial Yin Yoga certification, 12HR Trauma Informed Yoga, 50HR Essential Ayurveda for Yoga Practitioners and a 30HR certification in Pranayama and Meditation. Kate is currently enrolled for certification as an Ayurvedic Health Counsellor, and is an active member with Yoga Alliance International. You can find her classes in person throughout southwestern Ontario and virtually worldwide.

"Having attended both in person and online, group and private, your practices are thoughtful and you seem to know exactly how I need to move and what I need to hear, every single time. Your creative use of props not only makes poses accessible, but also changes the sensation of a pose I've done hundreds of times and turns it into a brand new pose. I'm so grateful for your weekly online series as your classes are medicine for my soul. It's wonderful to start my week with a dose of Yoga With Kate."
"Truly a wonderful experience to join any of your yoga classes
Fascial, Yin, Gentle Hatha Yoga.... I really love them all. I appreciate the supportive, caring way you have guided me on my journey to restore my body, inner strength & flexibility through our yoga practice each week. It's so nice to have found a passionate yoga instructor that shares so much of herself with her students.
Cannot thank you enough Kate."
"Kate is an amazing yoga teacher and person. It doesn’t matter how I’m feeling before I come to class, I feel amazing after……mentally and
physically. It’s like she has a magic ball and knows what we all need. A friend of mine brought her teenage daughter to Kates class. She has a difficult time with anxiety and was very unsuccessful the first class she tried with another instructor. This time she took Kates class and Kate spoke to her, made her feel so comfortable and relaxed that she is coming to more classes. It was so nice to see the smile on her face when she was finished the class. It is a turning point in her young life. If you want to do yoga then Kates class is the place to be. It can be a turning point in your life too."

"Kate welcomes you into your practice feeling completely at home. From the moment you’re greeted by her warm genuine smile to the moment you roll up your mat, you’ll feel like blissful magic has entered your every cell. Kate blesses each of her 'mat-mates' with honour and privilege to be in their presence. This kindness and sincerity is a blessing in each of her classes - you’ll feel nurtured and taken care of. Exactly how yoga should feel. Kate’s the purest of
all the yoga gems!"
"Kate brings warmth, kindness and a calm energy as she caringly guides her students through their yoga practice. She exudes light and love and shares that in each of her classes. I always leave class feeling lighter, balanced and at peace."
"I've been doing yoga with Kate mainly online and she has a great ability to teach this way. She cues us before going to the next pose making it easier to follow. And she takes the appropriate time to set up the pose properly and has a good yoga vocabulary that helps me adjust even better to the pose. Her caring and knowledgeable instruction mean feeling safe wherever she takes us resulting in a class where my mind and body feel good and help set a tone for my day. I look forward to my classes with Kate!"
