Our Mission 

Spark Youth Yoga promotes health and relaxation through fun and engaging yoga classes.

We believe in giving every person access to a variety of wellness tools as early in life as possible.  Through relaxation techniques, breathing exercises and mindful movement, children and young adults develop new and healthy ways of supporting themselves through life’s daily stressors and transitions. 

We build meaningful relationships with students by creating a caring environment which celebrates each unique individual’s strengths and goals.

We foster action from compassionate hearts and self-aware minds to cultivate an intentional community.

Kate Hudspeth

Founder and Instructor

Masters in Developmental Psychology

Kate works with children in many roles focused on health promotion and inspiring optimal outcomes for youth development.  She has extensive experience working with children through roles as a mental health clinician, an after-school coordinator for at-risk youth, and a mentor through outdoor sports programs focused on character development.  Kate completed a 200-hour alignment-based vinyasa flow teacher training and received a 95-hour kids’ yoga teaching certification from Yoga Ed.  She utilizes yoga to build confidence, community, and healthy habits that will serve children over the course of their lives.  She strives to help all children she works with to recognize and reach their potential, while feeling connected and happy in the process.  Kate is known for her enthusiastic and encouraging teaching style, and has a passion for building community and making yoga accessible to all.

Kate’s background combined with her genuine care for young people is truly inspiring. She connects instantly with each child building a rapport that draws the child into participating fully. My daughter has benefitted tremendously from yoga, and as an educator as well, I can say that every school should create space for Spark Youth Yoga’s presence.
