Beyond the desire to have a “good looking butt”, Kat comes to study and teach yoga after realizing just how significant yoga practice impacts emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Following a particularly bad breakup, she was distraught with emotional pain. With her mom’s guidance, she began to practice some yoga poses with healing intention, and use her breath and mantras to calm her emotions and settle her heart. This ‘yoga intervention’ made her realize that she could find healing on her yoga mat, and that her mat was where she was supposed to be. This inspired her to take her initial yoga teacher training class, as much to seek greater understanding as to why yoga was helping her so much, as well as develop her skills as an instructor.
Kat has been teaching yoga classes since 2014. Along with her classes at Live & Love Studio, she also leads trauma-sensitive yoga classes at Mainstay a residential facility for young adults. Additionally, Kat has her master’s in social work, and is the Social Worker at Jameson School in Old Orchard Beach.
