With a college degree in education, Kate spent half a decade of her early adult life teaching Fourth Grade at a school in North Charleston., South Carolina. During this time, Kate’s journey with yoga began as her time on the mat became a go-to for stress release – a way to regroup and truly focus on herself. After 5 years of teaching, she moved on to become a mom to three wonderful children, using yoga and fitness during each pregnancy as a way to witness the miracle of life growing within.
Years later and three kids deep, Kate started teaching fitness classes and personal training at a local gym. Yoga continued to be a major part of her life – now as a way not only to relieve stress, but as a way to sooth sore and tired muscles.
This is when Kate decided to pursue her 200hr RYT through Gaea Yoga Center in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina in 2013. Through the last couple of years, Kate has gained an appreciation for anatomy and the function of yoga, mainly focusing on skeletal variation, which makes us all so unique in our own bodies! She is currently pursuing her 500-hour certification at Gaea. Kate truly believes that when you take time for yourself on the mat, exploring the body, releasing the mind and uncovering your soul….your life will transform.
Kate’s teachings are driven by many teachers, mainly Kate Smith, Erich Schiffmann, Kira Ryder, and Saul David Raye.
When not teaching fitness and yoga classes, Kate can be found Creating Malas, Brewing Kombucha, Personal Training, and Celebrating the Love of Others, by being an Officiant. She also has a passion for paddle board yoga and became a Yoga Alliance Certified Paddle Board Yoga Instructor in August of 2014. Most of all though, Kate loves to just chill on the beach with her family. Kate has had a passion for serving others since she can remember. The idea that she can teach something she loves, embark on a journey deeper within herself, and be of service to others all in the same breath has been a dream come true for her.
