More about Kate
What class do you teach at Pure?
I teach Hot Power
How long have you been practicing yoga?
I have been practicing for 6 years.
What first attracted / what brought you to yoga? My mom tried to get me into yoga when I was growing up, but I wasn't interested. I ended up connecting to yoga later on in life. I work for FOX Broadcasting Company and we have a gym in the building. One day I took a yoga class during my lunch break and I was ready. I went back every week; it was my sanctuary.
was your first yoga teacher and how did he/she inspire you?
My first yoga teacher was definitely my mom. She is very spiritual and open hearted. She is constantly evolving and she doesn't let the past or future hold her back.
What motivates you to practice today?
The positive effect of my yoga practice on not only my body and mind but also with my relationship with the world motivates me to practice every day.
What do you love about Pure Yoga?

It's the studio where I get to practice with top instructors and communicate with smart management staff. Forever a student, I am very grateful to be part of this amazing community of teachers, staff and students.
