katE smyth - kids yoga - communication - class management
Kate envisions a world where everyone has the knowledge and power to embody the true essence of yoga, on the mat and in their everyday lives. Where our community is brought together by common intentions of love, sustainability and respect.
Ever since Kate’s dad bought her a yoga video at the tender age of nine, she has been enthralled by the practice of yoga. Kate’s practice has deepened and become more consistent, strengthening and lengthening her body and expanding her mind, both on and off the mat.
“Yoga is at the core of my existence, inspiring me each precious moment to be more mindful. I am forever a student and love exploring both the physical asana practice of yoga along with the ancient philosophies and teachings this eternal science offers us.” ~ Kate
