A Little About Kate Peppard
Kate and her late, great mastiff, Little Miss Vegas
Why I Teach
After a (hectic and sometimes unhealthy) chunk of time in the city of Boston, I finally decided life was unmanageable - work stress, lifestyle, all of it - it was time to make a major life change. This revelation came thanks to stopping drinking and embarking on a more steady and serious dive into yoga. I determined to make yoga a foundational block for my shift in that I wanted my whole life to feel like I felt in and after a yoga class. I immersed myself in practicing yoga asana, and also incorporated vipassana meditation practice into my life.
My life shift inadvertently led me out of the city and into the foothills of the Berkshires. Once here, I decided to pursue my 200 hour teacher training in Bhava Flow yoga with Tracy Donahue at Bhava Yoga in Brattleboro VT. The Bhava Flow style is a vinyasa based flow practice strongly influenced by both the Jivamukti and Kripalu yoga styles.
And now I teach... and I strive to make my whole life "yoga" and I feel liberated from stress and anxiety - the cornerstones of an unhealthy life. Because of my own transformation, I firmly believe in the inherent power of all humans to transform themselves for the better, especially when we harness the power of yoga to help us access positivity and compassionate living.

About My Yoga Style
My classes are gently rigorous and are focused on a balanced series of movements closely aligned to the breath.
