MEET OUR TEAM!

Kate Berlin, Founder and Executive Director

Kate Berlin decided to quit her corporate banking job to start Purple Dot Yoga Project after yoga helped her break the cycle of abuse and intimate partner violence. She realized that the tools acquired from a dedicated yoga practice benefitted her life to journey from survivor to thriver and wanted to share what she learned with the others. Kate is a certified yoga teacher specializing in Trauma Informed Yoga.
