Katherine Shapiro

Katherine has a multicultural heritage. She grew up and was educated both in the US and in Europe and has travelled extensively all over the world, to the Americas, Europe and Asia. She learned to appreciate and love her multiple and diverse travel and living opportunities which have led her to the realization that we are all connected on a basic human level. Her desire for mindful and compassionate living in a chaotic world was the basic impulse that has brought her to the practice of yoga.

Katherine’s classes are challenging and creative, with playful exploration and deconstruction of poses, intelligent alignment and sequencing, mindful flow and music. Sweaty and sweet!
