Yoga at VegFest
Kate Domingue

Kate Domingue

Kate Domingue, RYT 200, was first introduced to yoga as a teen. She developed a deeper commitment in her twenties when an inactive lifestyle at work prompted her to seek the physical benefits of yoga. She not only found that yoga helped improve her physical health, but also strengthened her mental health. She soon became better able to manage stress and grow into the full capacity of her relationships. Experiencing the connection of yoga to her sense of well-being has inspired her to teach others, as Kate believes that everyone can benefit from yoga. Her passion for building community helps create a supportive environment in her classes. Given her first-hand experience with the benefits of yoga, she particularly enjoys introducing new students to the practice. Kate completed the 200 hour teacher training at Avalon Yoga & Wellness Center where she now teaches twice a week in Catonsville, Maryland.
