This is my motto for the past 22 years. 

I remind myself to take one step at a time, sometimes just one breath at a time.

KK for Meet Kate Kuss.jpeg


Kate Kuss is a teacher’s teacher. Her trainings and classes open up space for teachers and students to feel more comfortable sharing their voice. Yoga is more than just movements. If taught and practiced from a deeper place within the heart and soul, yoga is a journey, an exploration and an experience. 


"I believe that we are mirrors for one another and if I can show a teacher their light, then they pass that energy down to their students. How beautiful is that?”


Kate has experienced how a dedicated yoga and meditation practice leads to a healthier lifestyle. Kate’s true love is sharing how we can take care of ourselves from the inside out. With over 1,700 hours of yoga teacher training, 700 hours of meditation training and teaching both students and teachers for 10 years, Kate passes down yogic tools that can be practiced both on and off the mat.
