Kate Hanley

Writer, certified yoga teacher, stress expert

Home: Brooklyn, NY

Bio: Kate Hanley is a writer, yogi, and mom who's passionate about finding, practicing, and sharing simple ways to stay sane in an insane world. She is the author of The Anywhere, Anytime Chill Guide.

My Philosophy: Do what you love, do something to take care of yourself every day, and when all else fails, look for the hilarity in the situation.

If I weren't doing what I do now I'd be a private chef, an acupressure therapist, or an Etsy entrepreneur selling hand-knit Snuggies for babies.

Favorite piece of advice (or "pearl of wisdom"): "Struggle keeps us from growing sluggish. It transforms an ordinary human into a spiritually awake person. In fact, it is proper to welcome struggle, for its arrival is always auspicious." (Swami Kripalu) And, "Just keep swimming." (Dorie, Finding Nemo)
