About the teacher:
Kate McAnergney is a Registered Senior Teacher with Yoga Australia and has been teaching hatha yoga for 15 years. Kate and her family moved to Geelong in 2016 and soon after she gave birth her third child at home with Pia and Melissa from The Birth House in attendance! Prior to this Kate taught regular prenatal classes and courses in Melbourne at Kundalini House, Prana House and My Midwives Melbourne North. Over the past 5 years Kate has been sharing her expertise and wisdom with other yoga teachers through offer the Women’s module on the Prana House Yoga Teacher Training course.
Kate has 3 children (12, 8 and 2) and taught and practiced yoga throughout each of her pregnancies. She found that the most beneficial part of having a yoga practice was the ability to completely surrender, let go and GIVE birth. The mindful and complete habitation of each and every moment that yoga encourages, fosters within us a deep trust in the body’s ability to carry and birth our babies. Kate is passionate about helping women access this innate wisdom, enabling them to be fully present to the transformative experience of becoming a mother, however it may unfold.
