Kate was first introduced to yoga through acting classes in college, and has been practicing for over a decade. She received her RYT-200 in 2013 through the American Viniyoga Institute and is registered with both AVI and the Yoga Alliance. She has also studied yin yoga and meditation with Josh Summers and chakra vinyasa with Coral Brown.
She aims to share the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits she has received from a deep and consistent practice with her students, helping them to find their own mind-body connection and move toward balance and body acceptance. Her style of teaching is challenging, energizing, creative, and rooted in the belief of individualizing asana to the practitioner.
Outside of yoga, Kate is a theater director, dramaturg, and creative producer, working as the artistic associate for The Wilbury Theatre Group, and in the development office at Trinity Repertory Company, where she also teaches yoga at the Young Actors Summer Institute. Kate loves spin class, weight training, and yoga on the beach. She lives in Providence with her two fantastic fur babies.

Liz started practicing yoga over ten years ago, because it seemed like the "right" thing to do. She struggled in her classes for years, feeling like she didn't belong and didn't have the right kind of body for yoga. After connecting with Forrest Yoga, she learned how to listen to her body and discover and develop its capabilities.
Liz came to teaching yoga after finishing her PhD in art history. She developed sciatica during the last few stages of writing her dissertation and decided to complete a yoga teacher training to heal her body from the long and painful hours of sitting at a desk and the emotional wounds of graduate school. She found an unexpected passion in teaching yoga and has devoted herself to sharing the practice that has done so much for her physical and mental health.
