Katherine Cota MacDonald, founder of Black Fox Yoga

Katherine’s passion for movement, expression, and wellness are the driving forces behind her love of teaching. She is a certified yoga teacher for children and adults, Reiki II practitioner, writer, artist, and dancer. Katherine’s teaching is aimed at empowering students both on and off the mat, providing a positive and trauma-sensitive venue for self-acceptance, balance, and joy. She is proud to hold space for inclusive and accessible yoga for all. Her personal practice is the pursuit of the spaces where beauty, depth, and wonder reside.

Katherine completed 200-hr power yoga teacher certification through Core Power Yoga, Yin + Meditation certification with Sagel Urlacher, Prenatal Yoga certification through Rooted Boston, Radiant Child Yoga Levels 1-3, and Yoga for Children with Special Needs with KidPowerment. She is a licensed Massachusetts early childhood educator and worked in the field for over ten years, most recently as a preschool teacher (ages 4-5) and previously Lead toddler teacher (ages 2-3).

Off the mat, Katherine has a background in psychology, creative arts, writing, and dance.

She currently resides west of Boston with her husband, daughter, and torti cat.
