Kate Powell, founder of Wild Sacred Journey (www.wildsacredjourney.com; https://www.facebook.com/katepowell.wildsacredjourney/), struggled with disconnection, depression, and body image issues for years before turning to yoga, where she learned to balance fiery discipline and whole-hearted surrender on her journey back to herself. Around that same time, Kate fell into working on small, sustainable farms, the physicality of which reconnected her to the natural world and her body. Her journey deepened further when she completed her yoga teacher training in 2013 and has since logged over 1,000 hours of teaching group classes, privates, workshops, and retreats. A graduate of WhiteWinds-FeatherStone Institutes’ 470hr Integrative Energetic Medicine and Coaching program, Kate has done the deep work herself that allows her to be a strong, compassionate presence for students and clients and gives her a wide range of tools to guide those she works with back into embodying their truth, trust, vulnerability, and playful, sacred Love. She is passionate about transformation and possibility and enjoys reading, creating, being outdoors, good food, and good conversations and can always be counted on to blurt out awkwardly and earnestly heart-felt things in a world that teaches us to keep those close to the chest.
