Kate's passion as a yoga teacher is creating strong, peaceful families on and off the yoga mat. She is a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher through Dragonfly Yoga Studio in Doylestown, with additional certification in baby, children and postnatal yoga. After her third baby, Kate was diagnosed with diastasis recti (abdominal separation). While receiving treatment (and eventually closing that belly!!) at Central Bucks Physical Therapy, she turned her yoga focus to healing new moms. She knows a strong, mindful mom means a healthy and happy baby and family. Kate has practiced yoga for 15 years, and her practice has evolved from being a former dancer to running after three boys. The lessons of breathing, meditation and movement in yoga can smooth life's many transitions and Kate is excited to share this practice with other parents.
