Kate Forget

I was born and raised in Southern Ontario. During my youth, I figure skated competitively for many years. After graduating high-school I spent approximately 7 years as Hairstylist and Barber. Then, my husband and I moved to Northern Ontario where I came back to figure skating as a Coach for 3 years. During this time, yoga was becoming increasingly important to maintain both my physical health and well being. Our new life journey brought us to The Gentle Island in 2017. I soon started Yoga Teacher Training with the Maritime Yoga College and graduated in May of 2018. Since then, I’ve worked at a few studios and have been doing some volunteer yoga as well. The people of Prince Edward Island have been so welcoming and I’d like to thank everyone involved in encouraging me to pursue my yoga dreams. I look forward to seeing you at Dynamic!

Katie wants to share her passion for yoga, fitness and well-being, by making it accessible and approachable for everyone.

She completed her life-changing 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training in Bali in 2015, then continued to practise, learn and teach with fellow yogis from around the world.
