About Kate

I first learned about Rolfing® Structural Integration while at a yoga retreat at Esalen. I had been teaching yoga for several years and wanted to find a school where I could learn more about anatomy, alignment and how to see a person’s structure. Another student at the retreat recommended I check out the Rolf Institute and it turned out to offer everything I had been looking for.

I completed my training at the Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado in 2009 and settled my practice close to my home and community. Each of my teachers taught me that a person’s system responds to Rolfing when the practitioner is looking at the client as a whole being. Not a sum of parts, not a specific ache or pain, but truly an entire being with a complex story to tell. Each client is a collaborative partner and we both move forward together to bring his or her system into alignment and ease.

In the fall of 2016, I furthered my education to become a Certified Advanced Rolfer. This 6-week process involved studying with amazing teachers to deepen my understanding of the system of Rolfing Structural Integration.

When I’m not at work, I am strolling with my dog, Rocky; taking a yoga or Pilates class; cooking up big meals in the kitchen; reading from the endless stack of library books on my table; spending time with family (and marveling at how fast my little niece and nephew are growing) and keeping in touch with friends.
