Kat first discovered yoga and meditation during college but deepened her practice while working as a counselor for underserved youth/young adults in New York City. Daily yoga became a ritual of self-care and a safe space to surrender the stress of the day while cultivating strength and self-love. After five years of working in education in New York City, she and her partner moved to Abu Dhabi.
Kat received her Hatha and Vinyasa yoga certification at a Tibetan Buddhist monastery outside of Kathmandu, Nepal. She is also certified in Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy. As a teacher, Kat recognizes that we all have a unique biology and biography, but that yoga practice is beautiful because it nurtures the whole of us. Devoid of ego and judgment, everyone has the ability to bolster their inner journey toward empowerment and self-healing. This takes a great level of patience, self-awareness, and bravery, and it can only occur in a space that is intentionally inclusive. Kat is committed to holding such a safe space for her students in order to foster a practice of freedom that is rooted, but flowing.
