Katherine Cota MacDonald
(She/Her/Hers)

My love of teaching is rooted deep in my heart. With a strong background in teaching beginners and a deep and continued study of yoga philosophy, I am open and welcoming to all yoga practitioners and I meet you where you are. My classes go beyond asana (physical poses) into thoughtful and sustainable practice.

I believe in leaving space for students to find their individual practice. My background in power yoga and dance bring an athleticism to movement while my passion for honoring yoga’s history, the fields of psychology and wellness comprise a holistic teaching style. I teach what I practice and it is a constant coming home again.
