Kate Greer Yoga

Kate Greer (Hanspal Kaur) began teaching yoga in NYC after completing a 200hr Vinyasa certification at Sonic Yoga. At that time, her personal practice and teaching were informed by her study at Kula Yoga Project and with Sri Dharma Mittra. Following an injury, Kate was led to the alignment based practice of Anusara, and the teachers Elana Brower and at Vira Yoga. Kate later became Anusara-Inspired, going on to study with Amy Ippoliti, Darren Rhodes, Noah Maze, and John Friend, and she continues to honor aspects of the Anusara system in her teaching today.

Anusara taught Kate not only about healing injury through asana but also introduced her to Tantric philosophy. This piqued an interest that led Kate into further study and the practice of Kundalini, which she studied with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and Hari Kaur Khalsa at Golden Bridge Yoga. Kate completed her Level I teacher training at Yogi Bajan’s Ranch in Espanola, NM, and currently assists Level I trainings with Guruatma Singh and Prem Pyar Khalsa of Franklin Yoga.

She is currently pursuing the teachings of Shadow Yoga through her teachers Scott Blossom, Chandra Easton, and Matt Pesendian.

Kate lives in the Boston area with her husband, Richmond Dickson, and their sons, Kahlil and Rhodri. She teaches public yoga classes and workshops at studios in and around the city, and she co-created and was a lead instructor of Back Bay Yoga’s 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Trainings.

In 2009, Kate and Richmond founded Open Hearts Yoga School (openheartsyogaschool.com) and began offering retreats and teacher trainings in Florida, New England and abroad. Their mission is to provide a safe and sacred space where teachers and students can interact, grow, heal and learn from each other about the open-hearted nature of all human beings.

"To all my teachers, the ones who teach me in life, love, and laughter — Sat Nam and Namaste."
