Katherine Bradshaw, based in Los Angeles, California offers in-home private yoga, in-office yoga and meditation as well as yoga retreats locally and abroad. She infuses her classes with mindfulness practices, self-compassion practices, and yogic philosophy. Her seamless style of assisting students into the body-mind connection, while keeping movement flowing, results in inspiring classes and an integrative healing experience. Her technique focuses on harmonizing the inner and outer worlds, leaving students feeling grounded, relaxed, and open.
At age 11, Katherine wandered into a local yoga studio near her childhood home and was hooked. She continued to practice throughout her early years and in 2009, at age 17, signed up for her first teacher training with Santa Monica Yoga. Under the careful instruction of Nancy Goodstein, Kyra Haglund, and Shari Friedrechsen, she completed 200 hours and began to teach.
Over the past few years she has been refining her teaching style under the guidance of Chad Dennis, Jenn Perry and Cat Aquaviva of ROAM Yoga, Abbie Galvin of The Studio (a Katonah Yoga studio).
Her style of vinyasa class organizes the anatomy and the breath-led movement toward a peak pose through sequencing that builds and expands. Each class offers includes hands-on adjustments (with your permission), breathwork and meditation.
Your practice holds up a mirror and asks you to look inward. Take a peek.
Katherine's classes are amazing! They're full of 'holy shit that's hard' moments while keeping all of the yummy goodness of a flow class. Katherine has not only made me physically stronger, helping me reach peak poses, but has also helped me with mental focus, improving my practice on and off the mat. Expect invigorating flows, lots of squats and push-ups, belly busting abs and lots of cardio.
