Welcome! I'm Kate, the creator of Kaleidoscope Yoga. Thanks for stopping by my website. I grew up in New Hampshire, USA (the North East across the pond). Growing up in such a beautiful place fostered a love of nature and outdoor activities, especially hiking. I studied Anthropology at University which ignited a passion for the richness of varying culture so I love to travel. On one of my big travelling adventures I met a wonderful man who convinced me to marry him and move to the UK, so I did. Settling into UK life was surprisingly hard for me. I thought I was such a free-wheeling gal but turns out I found adapting to change difficult. Yoga saw me through some very tough years and taught me so much about myself. It changed my life on every level and continues to be my teacher and support system. I decided to train as a teacher so I could share the wisdom and beauty of the practice. That was in 2009, I can't believe it!
Since that time I've been doing my best to embrace the North East (which I love!) and create a community of happy, fun loving, yogis. I'm so grateful to all the beautiful people who have made that happen and absolutely love the welcoming and supportive environment created by this growing tribe, you're all so amazing!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I feel so blessed to have been able to devote myself to being a full time yoga teacher for a time. But, I eventually decided to reduce my teaching schedule and return to university. I enjoyed the challenge of returning to academic study so much I stayed on after by degree in occupational therapy to complete a PhD. Now I split my time between teaching yoga and a research position at a local university. One constant though, is yoga.
