Prepare your favorite adaptogen-infused drink, get your diffuser loaded up with your favorite essential oils, and cozy up to me and some of my favorite people. We’ve got a lot to learn (self-actualization, people!) and I’m so excited to be on this informative journey with you!

Yoga Teacher and owner of Black Fox Yoga Katherine Cota MacDonald on using social media in an intentional way, embodying yogic philosophy, and how yoga is for every body

Today’s guest is my lovely friend Katherine, a local Maynard-based yoga teacher. I’ve known Katherine for years, as she is married to one of my best friends from high school (Hi Steve!!), and of course we’ve bonded even more over our affinity for yoga!

I honestly don’t know how to best convey the amazingness that is all that Katherine shares in this episode - she is a lovely, intelligent, strong, beautiful woman who lives fully and consciously in alignment with her yoga. She consistently engages with life in an intentional and authentic way, always finds the good and beauty in others, and embodies the foundational principles of yoga. She’s also got an incredible way with words, as evidenced by her informative posts on her blog! I feel lucky to know Katherine and call her a friend. I know that you’ll love this episode as much as I loved chatting with Katherine! I think we could’ve talked for like, hours more, haha!

In this episode we hear:

  • about Katherine’s view on authenticity in yoga and on social media

  • how she came up with her company name “Black Fox Yoga”

  • how yoga must celebrate all bodies in yoga

  • about Katherine’s views on “yogalebrities”

  • about how Katherine approaches teaching beginners in yoga, and why she doesn’t use props in those classes

  • how to cue efficiently in a yoga class

  • how to stand out as a yoga teacher

  • how to identify and manage ego as a yoga teacher

  • how to live your yoga with intention and integrity
