Katherine Shapiro

I have taught private and group classes in The Hamptons and NYC for over 15 years.  
My classes are challenging and creative, with playful exploration and deconstruction of poses,intelligent alignment,sequencing and mindful flow. I call them "sweaty and sweet". 
I have a BFA in Dance, 500hr ISHTA training,YogaWorks Bridge and YogaShanti Advanced training. I am registered with Yoga Alliance as a E-RYT 500 and YACAP (continuing ed. provider).
I am grateful to John Seelye for his support and teachings and the community at One Ocean Yoga.
I also currently teach at YogaShanti,YogaWorks,Hospital for Special Surgery's Public and Patient education Division and as part of NYU's Wellness for WIN.
My desire for mindful and compassionate living in a chaotic world brought me to the practice of yoga which I continually endeavor to integrate into every aspect of my life.


Katherine Shapiro instructs the following:
  • Open
  • Challenging Vinyasa or flowing series of poses, experience suggested. It is recommended but not required that you attend Basic or Level 1-2 classes before attending Open classes.

  • Gentle/Basic Yoga
  • These classes are designed to accommodate a wide range of individuals who may not feel comfortable yet in a typically more active yoga class. The pace of this class will be slow and each session will be modified to meet the needs of participants. If you are interested in trying yoga but worry that your age, fitness level, weight, or a particular injury might make being part of a class uncomfortable or seemingly impossible then this class is ideal for you.
