#ODDlight Yoga Teacher Feature: Katherine Bradshaw

Feb 10th, 2017 oddfam #ODDlight, Blog

Each month we bring a teacher into the #ODDlight and illuminate their interests, practices, and who they are. There is a real person behind those teachers and it’s their knowledge filtered through their own experiences that make them that person that pulls you into class.

Name: Katherine Bradshaw

Nick Name: Kate (but only allowed by my mother) (Look at these great family photos - Mom and brothers!)

Hometown: Redondo beach, CA

Favorite Place: Hawthorne Valley farm in Ghent, NY - a tiny biodynamic farm where I have led retreats. I even walked a sheep once! On a leash!

Favorite color: crimson

What’s your sign? Gemini

Most embarrassing moment? N/a

Most empowering moment? Moving from NY to LA solo

Fun Fact most wouldn’t know about you? I'm left handed

Fun Fact most wouldn’t know about you? I'm learning to teach yoga in español - pronto!

Fun Fact most wouldn’t know about you? I try face my terrible fear of heights. just looking at someone sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon puts a wave through my whole body. So, At least a few times a year I make a pointed effort to do something extremely high up and semi-dangerous whether it  bungee jumping, walking across a  slack bridge, or parasailing. Pretty soon I will one day work up the nerve to skydive. Maybe. Yes. Definitely maybe I want to.

 

When you aren’t at the studio where can you be found (favorite past time)? At the Hollywood Farmers Market

How do you define yoga? Yoga is the healing process of calling the chatter in the mind.

Why do you teach? I teach because I believe in the Effects. Yoga is a healing modality. Mindful movement and breath lets the spirit take off stagnant layers of energy.

What brought you to become an instructor? I was 17 and I knew this was my passion and I wanted to share it in a bigger way.

What is your favorite song to play in class? Any other name by Thomas Newman

What is your favorite pose or flow? Why? I really enjoy Surya namaskar C in truth. Slow and delicious - perfect for invigorating or winding down.

Memorable yoga moment? Striking my first hand stand in the middle of class is the feeling of Sweet victory.

What is your favorite yogi prop or piece to wear or use? (favorite mala etc) I like to have a cushy bolster beNeath my spine during final resting pose. And! And eye pillow! I never take savasana without one!

What special causes or non-profits do you hold dear to your heart? (We will want to be more non-profits and would love to do so on your behalf) uprising yoga is an organization that helps teach teens in central juvenile hall downtown. I also teach in men's central jail downtown with an organization called present yoga and meditation.

Are there any links, @names, and #hashtags you would you like us to use in promoting you and your happenings?
