Kate Daughdrill is an artist, farmer, speaker, and yogini who is based at her urban farm in Detroit, Michigan. Kate weaves together art, yoga, plants/food, and spiritual practice to create transformative experiences of embodied presence and healing. Kate’s approach to yoga is blissful, surrender-oriented, and often plant-inspired. How do we work with our consciousness to experience a direct spiritual connection in our bodies? How do we work with plants, food, and community to create more sustainable ways of living that embody the wholeness and open-heartedness of yoga?
Kate has trained in Akhanda Yoga, Yin Yoga, Galactic Child Yoga, and Kundalini Yoga. She begins classes with pranayama and an Ashtanga / Vinyasa flow to prepare the body for a Kundalini meditation. Kate believes that true presence with plants can bring us into a profound state of connection in a very similar way to asana and often incorporates living plants into her classes!
Kate’s work at Burnside Farm, her artistic urban farm in Detroit, has received national attention from the New York Times, Dwell, and Oprah Magazine. She has shared her sculptures, performative dinners, cooking, yoga practices, ceremonies, and writing all over the world. Kate is grateful to get to spend time in Pensacola in the winters, being nurtured by the Gulf Coast’s soulful yoga community, teaching about art and plants, and spending time with her family at the beach.
