Katharine “Kat” Wheatley was certified as a RYT-200 in 2013 with YogaWorks and is a registered member of Yoga Alliance. Kat was trained as a classical ballet dancer, studying and performing for nearly 18 years with the Fletchers and with the Land of the Sky Civic Ballet in Asheville, NC. Kat started practicing yoga occasionally at a gym almost 25 years ago, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she committed to a steady and (almost) daily practice of yoga. Kat is currently manager of Key Largo Yoga and in addition to overseeing workshops and special events, she manages the schedule, our team of teachers, and our social media connections. Kat subs classes when the regular teacher is unavailable and as such can teach any level of Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Aerial, Gentle, SUP Yoga, and Yin. Kat continues her education as often as possible through her own practice, with her mentor Kathy Shirley, and by attending multiple workshops, conferences and events throughout the year. She maintains two of her own classes on the schedule - you can find her teaching Gentle Candlelight yoga Monday evenings at our south location, or her signature Fun Flow class on Fridays at 4:30pm at our North Studio.

Rossanna moved back to the Keys in 2015 after living in Europe for a couple of years where she deepened her practice. Her Yoga practice started in 2003 after a back and neck injury. She is now an RYT with Yoga Alliance, earning her Teacher training certification in Rishikesh India, also known as the Yoga Capital of the World.

Rossanna took Yoga classes with Rohithaksha Kulal who was the disciple of Dr. Krishna Bate who taught Yoga at the KMC Hospital in Karnataka Mangalore.

Rossanna specializes in traditional Hatha Yoga, and Restorative Yoga. She was chosen among others to lead a gentle Yoga class at the Rochester Refugee Mental Health Project in Rochester, NY.

Rossanna comenzó a practicar Yoga en 2003 después de haber sufrido un accidente. En cada práctica ella notaba que el dolor del cuello y de espalda pasaban después de un buen estiramiento en la clase de Yoga. Al pasar los años comenzó a tener la inquietud en formarse en Profesora para poder pasar el conocimiento del Yoga. Decidió viajar a la India para obtener la mejor formación posible tomando clases de Yoga Terapéutico y formándose en el estilo de Hatha Yoga Tradicional. Rossanna esta registrada en el "Yoga Alliance USA" y siente que es su deber pasar los conocimientos de Yoga que ha aprendido atravez de los años y que ha sido incalculablemente beneficioso para su vida!
