Cate discovered Kundalini Yoga by accident nearly years ago and was surprised and thrilled by how engaged, energized, and inspired it made her feel. She's been practicing ever since. In 2008, Cate completed her Level 1 (200 hr) teacher training with Hari Kaur Khalsa of Hari NYC. In 2012, she broadened her knowledge with a very special Holistic Hatha Yoga training (300 hr) with Amy Witmyer of Sacred Space. More recently, Cate completed her training in Shakti Dance™as taught by Sara Avtar Kaur with trainer Dharma Devi Kaur, a beautiful dance practice that grew out of the teachings of Kundalini Yoga. The practice of Shakti Dance™ is deepening her understanding of her own energy and her whole inner life -- her Truth. It's a perfect complement to Kundalini Yoga. Cate is grateful to her teachers and to all of her students who show up to find inner peace and connect to their inner wisdom.
