In 1985, Kate studied 2 years (Iyengar) at the Yoga Centre, when that was the only yoga in Calgary! Shortly thereafter, she met Norman Sjoman & Dattatreya, where she became a student of traditional South Indian yoga. This was an intense, 6 day-a-week practice with regular 20 minute head and shoulder stands, attention to alignment in all asanas, and a full compliment of advanced work in backends, balancing and advanced forward bends. Over the past 11 years, Kate studied Critical Alignment Therapy with Gert Van Leeuwen from Amsterdam. Her teaching has spanned 25 years and incorporates learning in the field of yoga, alignment, therapy and body mechanics.
