Ayurvedic Health Center
Instructor: Kate LaSpina, Yoga Instructor & PTA
This is an all levels class- from beginners to instructors. The focus of the class will be tailored for the Winter season- dynamic, uplifting and inspiring. Kate LaSpina is an excellent teacher and has a strong back ground in Iyengar yoga, as well an understanding of the energetic and elemental application of ayurvedic yoga. In addition, Kate is also a Physical Therapist Assistant. Kate says, “When Ayurveda came into my yoga practice, I was able to travel deeper into the core of understanding how the elements of Earth, Air, Ether, Fire and Water exist within us and are in a constant state of change.”
$15 per single class. 6 class series packs for $75. Pre-registration required.
My journey with Yoga began in Spring 2006. Since, I have studied extensively with Ingela Abbott, owner of Yoga Northwest, and other senior Iyengar Yoga instructors from around the country. In 2009 I started to teach Yoga at the YMCA, WWU, and other venues in the greater Bellingham area.
As a devoted practitioner, I welcome the challenges, joy and transformation that Yoga continues to grant me and it’s a gift for me to be able to teach Yoga and see my students experience the heart of Yoga; the integration between body, mind and breath through the principles of Ayurveda.
I am a graduate from Western Washington University and a lisenced PTA. With this training I seek to weave together my passion for Yoga and physical therapy; helping people heal their injuries, practice Yoga safely and encourage people to strive for their full potential.
For the last 8 years I have also studied herbal medicine and love learning about plants and their hidden remedies and i work at Wonderland Herbs, Teas, and Spice in downtown Bellingham.
When I am not doing Yoga, studying about the body or plants, I simply just love being outdoors in nature, by the sea, in the sea or under the canopy of our beautiful evergreen forests.
