Kate has practiced many styles of yoga over twenty five years including: classical Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Forrest, Ashtanga and Bikram. She completed Hot Yoga Teacher’s Training in December of 2008. She went on to train with Ana Forrest in October of 2009 which she considers one of the most pivotal experiences of her life. Ana Forrest reminded Kate of the healer she was meant to be, by providing a space for Kate to take a deep and honest look at the protective barriers that held her back in life, until that point. Kate’s great love of Forrest Yoga has significantly impacted her practice, life, and spirit and has taught her a greater understanding of the healing power of breath and movement within the physical, emotional and spiritual layers of the human body. The teaching Kate provides, will truly help you unlock your barriers that hold you back from walking a path of vibrancy in this life. Kate is a leading Forrest Yoga teacher and is truly honored to be able to bring her great passion for this art of healing to all that cross her path at all the studios she teaches at including: Yoga Pod, Radiance Power Yoga, and Amana, in Boulder Colorado as well as Tula Hot Yoga Studio in Denver.
Kate is in formal mentorship with Native trained teacher, Trudy Welty. They continue in-depth studies from a Native perspective about the Universal Circle and Healing as a part of the cycle of life. Her teacher Miss Trudy is a very seasoned teacher in the Native Ways. Trudy is known as a Wisdom Holder in her tradition and she has spent thirty years teaching people how to heal and live more peacefully in this world. Kate considers it a deep honor to have been blessed with these teachings from Miss Trudy, and considers these teachings as the guiding force in supporting Kate to teach people to heal themselves through balancing the relationship between their body, mind and spirit. Kate also facilitates many healing circles in her community, using the Seven Directions, Elements, and relationship to the Natural World.
Yoga Teacher, Healer
Nick and Rachel have created the ecoYoga Centre at Inverliever Lodge as an expression of their belief in a healthy, happy, carbon free and sustainable lifestyle. The transformation from an old outdoor centre to its present incarnation as a luxurious but still genuinely ‘eco’ holiday experience is now complete. Set in magnificent Scottish scenery; hills, lochs, rivers and forests abound. The ecoYoga Centre is totally off-grid. Powered by our 550Kw hydro turbine and a large bank of solar panels.
In our glazed studio, overlooking the gorge of the River Liever, you can learn the art of Yoga from some of the finest Yoga teachers in the world. The 60sqm shala is purpose built with under floor heating and a very calming ambience. Your body can melt into the warmth of the floor during Savasana (deep relaxation at the end of a Yoga practice) whilst the mind is gently soothed by the sounds of the nearby waterfalls.
We have several bathing areas and showers to choose from. Inspired by the Japanese tradition of the ‘Sento’ or public bathing house you can soak in our natural wooden hot tub in the Dome, or choose some hideaway bathing spots in the forest or river bank. Our artisan underground sauna is a real treat, perfect for warming up and relaxing those muscles. We have two cold plunge pools for cooling off, filled with water straight from the spring. The outdoor heated bathtubs are the ultimate in natural bathing and an experience not to be missed. It really is a magical opportunity to connect with nature and indulge your wild side.
ecoYoga food comes straight from the organic garden when in season. We strive to serve the most delicious vegetarian dishes. The main dining room is used during our larger retreats. The sun catching passive heating area is a great place to hang out, to read or chat with fellow guests.
