I’m Kate, a well travelled Aussie who now hangs out with nice yogis in Las Vegas. The quick ‘About’ version goes like this: I’m a yoga instructor, certified and registered (with Yoga Alliance) and insured. I teach now, but my first class was not “love at first pose” you read in most teacher bio’s. My first class was a confusing and humbling experience. I didn’t like it. However, I felt absolutely amazing for the rest of that day. So I went back. Again and again.. This is how my yoga journey began; not with ease and perfect from, but with perseverance, patience and acceptance.
If you’re still reading, here’s a little more about me …
In the commercial studios, I teach exclusively at TruFusion (Eastern, Blue Diamond & Summerlin). You will find me on the schedule teaching TruSignature Series, TruFlow, TruYin and YinFused. TruFusion schedule
Outside of the high-energy big studios, my karma was such that I find myself with the luxury of a private studio:) It’s small, casual, caring and authentic. Yoga traditions are definitely respected, but it’s less rigid than a large commercial studio has to be. For example, you can bring your latte to class if you’re having a rough morning. This is Yoga Joi 🙂
