Resident Yoga Teachers

Kate Swarm

Kate is a Yoga Teacher from Oregon.

She finds her greatest joy in holding space for other people, it is her gift. Before she was a yoga teacher she was a birth doula creating an atmosphere of kindness, encouragement, and education for women in labor. She guided pregnant mommas while they were in their most vulnerable state, and provided them with support so they could tune in and listen to their bodies. She feels that, as a yoga teacher, she holds the same space for people. Her goal is to create a safe, supportive, and loving place for people to come explore the boundless possibilities of their form.


Kate believes yoga is a place to unite mind, body and soul. Yoga is that place where everything that came before, and everything that lies ahead, quiets. Yoga is the moment when world falls to a hush, and you exist in the NOW. Yoga is where all the pieces of who you are come together, and all the excess fades away. To do yoga, means to exist in the present moment; it is less about the physical asana, and more about fully experiencing the connection that happens between mind, body and soul while you practice.


Besides being a yoga teacher, Kate teams up with Walter Yoga to produce extraordinary events, and guides movement at the Walter Wake Up Call! , morning dance parties.

Gordon Ogden

Gordon was first introduced to yoga in 2000 when his wife Holly suggested he try yoga to compliment his passion for rock climbing. He immediately recognized the gifts of yoga and has never looked back. In 2014, wanting to deepen his practice, he completed his 200-hour teacher certification with John Salisbury. He has seen the amazing growth,undeniable joy, and freedom that yoga cultivates in one’s life and wants to share that with every student.


Gordon’s classes provide a safe, fun and compassionate environment where students can use their breath, an open heart, and graceful movements to find their inner truth. It is Gordon’s hope that students leave feeling relaxed, revitalized, and at peace; carrying this amazing energy off the mat and into their daily lives.


In addition to being a certified yoga teacher, Gordon teams up with Kate to co-produce extraordinary yoga events with Walter Yoga. He’s been a marketing professional since the mid 1990’s, an avid rock climber, and lives in Phoenix with his wife Holly, and their daughter Willow.
