Meredith Kates (Shakti Krishnan), Instructor
Meredith has been immersed in the complementary paths of teacher, yogi, community activist and mother for the past 25 years. Through a flow of grace, she found her spiritual "home” in kundalini yoga in 2015, and is ever appreciative for the profound and transformative benefits of this practice.
Meredith’s daily KY practice is the inner vehicle for conquering doubt, building strength and responding with greater compassion, clarity and confidence in all the outer roles of her life. She was certified as Level I KRI Instructor in 2019 (Mother Divine Foundation), and is a Reiki (Level 2) practitioner.
Meredith has a particular affinity and appreciation for the humor and authenticity of adolescents and children. She also teaches at Montclair Cooperative School.
Meredith is committed to offering inclusive and responsive classes that are accessible and welcoming to all.
At this particular time of individual and collective challenge, Meredith is grateful for the family of Montclair Kundalini, and is gratified to be among such loving, committed and authentic teachers and students.
