Kate has walked a complex life of different layers of healing she has had to embrace. On this walk, she has met many teachers who've reminded her to stay true to her healing path.
Over the last twenty five years, Kate has practiced many styles of yoga as a vehicle to support her healing and evolution. Kate’s great love of yoga has significantly impacted her practice, life and spirit, and has taught her a greater understanding of the healing power of breath and movement within the physical, emotional and spiritual layers of the human body. She completed Hot Yoga Teacher Training in December 2008. Kate went on to train with Ana Forrest in October of 2009, which was one of the most pivotal experiences of her life. Ana Forrest reminded Kate of the healer she was meant to be by providing a space for her to take a deep and honest look at the protective barriers holding her back in life.
In her 30s, Kate faced a crossroads where she knew she had to break out of how she was walking in her life and choose a new way of being which allowed her to be free in her life, in a fuller, more authentic way. During this experience she met her spiritual teacher, Trudy Welty. Trudy is known as a wisdom holder of working with nature in a sacred way. Trudy taught Kate methods of living as a sensitive being in this world by building a bridge working with Mother Nature and the human experience in a cohesive internal balance. She continues in her studies with Miss Trudy.
As Kate continued teaching and evolving in her healing ways, how she taught yoga shifted, and through her healing evolution, Kate was guided and then inspired to create a yoga style that worked with the elements of nature. Kate began creating a style with the support of Kelly Kessen, a teacher of Five Elements Acupuncture, and Earth Ways Yoga began. Kate invited Trudy Welty, a well-trained naturalist, to add even more depth of relationship between the natural world and humans' evolution toward walking in balance on this earth in honoring all the relations. Earth Ways Yoga builds the bridge between Mother Nature and the human experience through yoga, meditation and ritual. Kate and Trudy are honored to be able to stand together to offer these trainings to others who are ready to stand in an authentic way as a teacher in this world.
Kate's teaching will help unlock barriers that have held you back from walking a path of vibrancy in this life. Kate is honored to be able to bring her great passion for the art of healing to all that cross her path at all the studios where she teaches, including Yoga Pod and Radiance Power Yoga in Boulder Colorado, Tula Hot Yoga Studio in Denver, and guest teaches at Ra Yoga in Southern California. Kate also facilitates healing circles in her community which incorporate the Seven Directions, the 5 Elements and relationship building with the Natural World.
Kate has a flourishing private practice in Boulder, Colorado. These sessions incorporate guidance through deeply intuitive energy work and breath work to live in a better way with mind, body and essence as a sensitive being in this world. Kate provides a sacred space and tools to help her clients facilitate their own healing processes.
