Kate started practicing yoga more than a decade ago as a public service to those around her. What she discovered was so much more. Years of dance and athletics, followed by time spent in demanding corporate environments had created extreme imbalance in the body. Yoga

provided an opportunity to explore a marriage of the yin and the yang; a sustainable approach physically and mentally, to a vibrant, mindful, and active life. Naturally, Kate became the director of Exhale Venice, part of a national boutique fitness brand that operated a Venice Beach yoga mecca for over a decade. Kate has completed 500 hours of Annie Carpenter’s SmartFLOW yoga training, and has also trained with Shiva Rea, Aaron Reed, Kate Duyn Cariati, and Mary Dana Abbott, in vinyasa flow, restorative yoga and pranayama. She is Barre certified by exhale and teaches other fitness modalities including HIIT (high intensity interval training), cardio, and sculpt.
