Kate W Mak

Hi, I'm Kate and I am a self proclaimed fun enthusiast that is always seeking to learn, teach, travel and eat. Teaching yoga and getting onto the mat myself is one of the most beautiful and satisfying journeys I have been on and continue to walk along. It is my humble hope that I can encourage and inspire while sharing the pieces of me with every class I teach. It is important for me to approach and teach from a place of playfulness while going deeper into the flow and poetry of the practice. In my classes, I strive to blend my background in science with the steeped wisdom that comes from yoga teachings while keeping it light hearted and fun. It is my intention to awaken within each of us, our ability to act as positive instruments in this world for change. This is powered by love, joy and laughter! It will be my honour to share this experience with you as a teacher, fellow student and friend! I can't wait to meet you and to see you on the mat!

Kate W Mak instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa Flow Yoga
  • A class of exploration for syncing movement and breath. We will uncover the magic of non-sequenced flow, and how the wide array of postures linked with pranayama will help support and build a strong mind, body and heart. Each class will be a different experience based on your teacher’s creative choice and background to bring you to new depths and your edge on that particular day. Vinyasa yoga is an opportunity to challenge yourself while accessing a non-traditional flow and the way in which you show up on your mat. How we do one thing is how we do everything. We can’t wait to meet you on your mat, and see where our movement takes us. Everyone is welcome to this class. It will meet you wherever you are in your own personal practice.
     
    “movement steeped in breath + strength” Jennifer Mehalko
     
    “A class that is always slightly different and inspired by what I am working through in my own life and personal practice. Each class is like a fingerprint, unique and different… just like us...” Kate W. Mak

    “Strong and sweaty” Adriana Britton
     
    “I adore this style of yoga as it helps us to remember our inner strength through the manifestation of the physical body. I’m inspired to teach this because it brings people to the edge of their perceived limitations and encourages them to get curious.” Stacey Irvine

  • Sunrise Flow
  • Start your day with awareness, movement, and breath with this vinyasa based practice. This class will get your heart pumping, while working with your body post sleep. An energetic practice that blends sweat, strength and flexibility in a class that thoroughly tones the body and disciplines the mind. Everyone welcome.
     
    “There’s something extra special about these early morning classes because everybody in the room took the extra effort to set the alarm and set off while most of the city is still sleeping. It’s a warm, inviting kind of energy and I use that to gently wake the deepest parts of ourselves before firing it up to set you for the rest of the day...”
    Kate W. Mak

    “A slow, sacred, rhythmic start to the day. Focus is on alignment and breath and deep, intimate self love.” Jamie Cameron

    “I believe in the power of intention, ritual and following the rhythms of mother nature. Sunrise yoga brings me closer to each of these practices at the same time...” Stacey Irvine

  • Holiday Happiness Class
  • Join Kate W. Mak for the third year in a row at Junction 9 for this annual Christmas class as we come together over the holidays to find cheer, celebration and community together. It has been an amazing 2018 and what a great opportunity to reflect together.

    The class is complimentary with the option to donate to Junction 9’s charity, Emma House, who does loving work in getting mothers back on their feet in tough times.
