Complete Practice ($20 drop-in)


This class is taught by:

Kate Greer

Kate Greer has been practicing yoga since 2001 and teaching since 2005. She teaches Shadow Yoga, which she studies with Shandor Remete, founder of the Shadow Yoga school, and Emma Balnaves, its director. She began practicing Shadow Yoga in 2010 initially with Scott Blossom, Chandra Easton, and Matt Pesendian. It is a privilege to have been given permission to share this practice which has been so transformative for her.

Kate is also a mother of two boys, a graduate student in counseling psychology, and a regular meditator. She teaches both yoga and meditation at yoga studios, and also teaches mindfulness in schools and in corporate settings.

This class is designed for those who wish to take their yoga practice a little bit deeper. Perhaps this means taking the time for breathwork, chanting, and meditation, in addition to an asana or posture-based practice. Perhaps it means giving yourself a complete practice that begins to work on the higher levels or limbs of yoga. By giving yourself the space for a fuller practice and having the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers, this class is designed to be a platform for your next level, whatever that may be. In each Complete Practice class, Kate will offer a full asana practice (between 60 and 90 minutes), along with some of the more subtle practices, including pranayama (breath control), and the occasional Kundalini meditation or chant. The theme of the class will vary from week to week, and might fluctuate from something very physical—such as a class focusing on mula bandha (the pelvic floor)—to something more esoteric, like creating an attitude of gratitude.

Note: This class has no prerequisite—everyone from new practitioners to teachers is welcome. What counts is your willingness to show up, both for yourself and for class. Kate looks forward to cultivating ongoing relationships with her students and serving them in whatever way she is able.
