Kate Johnson is happiest when working at the intersections of spiritual practice, social action, and creative expression. Her style as a meditation teacher is clear, warm, and smart, encouraging stability and clarity of mind while bringing the heart a little closer to the surface. When she's not at MNDFL, Kate teaches mindful yoga and meditation in NYC public schools, Buddhist meditation at The Interdependence Project, and facilitates Social Presencing Theater, an embodied approach to organizational training and leadership development. Kate has trained at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, The Interdependence Project, Laughing Lotus Yoga and The Presencing Institute. She also holds a BFA in Dance from The Alvin Ailey School/Fordham University, and a MA in Performance Studies from NYU.
