certified yoga instructor
Kate Ely received her B.A. in Dance from Western Michigan University, studying with professionals such as George Faison, Robert Battle, and Derrick Evans. After graduation, she moved to New York City. Years of competitive dance led to the non-competitive world of yoga. In 2008, Kate received her 200hour Yoga Alliance from the first completely donation-based studio, Yoga To The People. Continuing her studies in dance as well as yoga, Kate studied at the Integral Yoga Institute, Jivamukti Yoga, Steps on Broadway, Peridance and other studios in the city. While there she performed at small venues and began teaching dance within the public school system in Brooklyn. Back in the Midwest, Kate has begun to focus even more on her love of teaching movement through yoga, dance, and fitness and has felt blessed to become a part of the Vibe Wellness family @The 9.
