The Grand Rapids Yoga Company, llc is the weirdo brain-child of West Michigan native, Kate Benson. Her eclectic mix of light-hearted instruction and funky style pair well with her down-to earth and relatable attitude. She earned her Masters Degree in Community Counseling from Western Michigan University and has an extensive history with non-profit and street outreach work. She aims to bring the physical, mental, and loosely defined & all encompassing spiritual elements of yoga to the people of Grand Rapids. If not at the studio, you can find her on the beach, in the forest, or driving the Mobile Yoga Unit to community and yoga activism events.
She proudly completed her RYT-200 apprenticeship at Just B Yoga in Lansing, Michigan.
