Kate has been practicing yoga since 1998, and started teaching in 2001 after completing the Integrative Yoga Therapy Teacher Training Program. Three years later she also became certified to teach prenatal yoga.  She is registered as an E-RYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) through the Yoga Alliance, which allows her to offer teacher training. In her early years of teaching she taught at various locations including the NDG YMCA and different yoga studios in Montreal and the West Island. In 2005 she was inspired to open Ambaa Yoga Studio along with fellow co-founder Michelle Sands. 

Kate has studied with many wonderful teachers over the years of her practice, including John Friend, Todd Norian, Rodney Yee, Seane Corne and Donna Farhi, these teachings and experiences widening and deepening her viewpoint of life and her understanding of yoga. Over her years of practice, Kate has become an experienced teacher of all aspects of yoga including yoga asana, pranyama, meditation, energy anatomy and the underlying philosophies of yoga leading to a deeper and fuller understanding overall.  She also has studied extensively at the Montreal Institute of Classical Homeopathy (MICH) which has allowed her to understand the human being in a truly holistic way,  seeing beyond the body-mind to an experience of true self and wholeness. This is reflected in her teaching and overall approach.

Kate has been particularly attracted to the teachings of Krishnamurti, Alan Watts, Adyashanti, and other teachers of the non-dual wisdom. These teachings have brought her on a journey of self enquiry and exploration which is reflected in her teaching and in her life both on and off the yoga mat.  She is also continuously inspired and influenced by her yoga teacher, Clearlight Gerald and her homeopathy teacher and mentor Judyann Macnamara, who embody these practices and teachings.

She was inspired to teach yoga to children and to moms and babies early on in her career, and over the years has come to the understanding that the children are really teaching her.  She continues to learn from them how to be fully present in the moment, to approach life from a place of curiosity and exploration and above all to have fun!  Her passion for kid’s yoga naturally led her to become certified in prenatal yoga in 2004. Over the years Kate has witnessed the benefits of yoga for women during this time in their lives through the practice of yoga, in their abilities to be deeply present and connected to a deeper wisdom within themselves and with their child through the experience of pregnancy, childbirth and parenting.   She loves to be able to follow her students and their children on their yoga journey through pregnancy, mom and baby yoga and eventually toddler’s and children’s yoga.  She is director and principle teacher with Mishkaa Minis Yoga for Kids (formerly Little Lotus Yoga for Kids), who run training programs for Kids Yoga Teachers and workshops and classes for kids of all ages.

Kate is also a homeopath and member of the MICH faculty. You can read more about her work with homeopathy on her personal website www.homeopathyoga.com.
