Kate Brodie is a 200hr Kunga Yoga instructor who is committed to sharing the benefits of uniting mind, body, and spirit in a welcoming community space through the practice of yoga. Addicted to movement from a young age, Kate was a competitive gymnast and springboard diver through college. After completing her Ph.D. in Oceanography in 2010, Kate moved to the Outer Banks and began searching for a new physical activity to serve as a lifelong sport.
Kate discovered yoga in 2014 and was immediately drawn to the physical discipline and concentration required for the practice—as well as the chance to hang out upside-down again. Through a dedicated daily practice, Kate began to recognize not only the physical benefits of yoga, but also the transformational power of linking movement and breath in reducing stress, increasing focus, building community, and discovering the present moment.
Deciding to take her practice to the next level, Kate completed her 200-hour teaching certification with Village Yoga in August 2017 under the guidance of Katie Kennis and Jessica Moody and is in the process of completing her 500-hour teaching certification with Yoga Medicine and Tiffany Cruikshank.
Kate strives to create dynamic flows in her classes that promote functional movements and encourages students to safely explore new asanas through proper alignment and foundational strength building. When not practicing yoga or studying the coast as a research scientist at the Duck Research Pier, Kate can be found surfing, exploring with her Siberian Husky, Chloe, or hand-standing just about anywhere!
