FOUNDER & INSTRUCTOR
Brigitte holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Minnesota and is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. She came to yoga to find a blissful state of being, moving her body in meditation, breathing and dancing through her asana practice. Brigitte is honored to share her passion and believes in the power of yoga to understand that we are all seeking the same thing - wholeness, community and purpose. She guides her classes in a manner that challenges all dimensions of a person and encourages self expression through the asana practice.
Kate began practicing yoga in 1999 in the Lone Star State as a means to release tension in her physical body. She got her 200-hour RYT certification in 2008 and is currently enrolled in 500-hour teacher training at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis. Kate is a lighthearted and compassionate teacher. As a teacher, she creates a nurturing environment that encourages students to find acceptance wherever they are in their journey. She is also a passionate runner and marathoner. Kate anonymously donated her kidney in December of 2008. Her gift of life was a life changing experience and she is grateful to all the support she received from friends, family and the University of Minnesota Medical Center.
