CATE BARTILUCCI
Owner of LPY
Cate is the proud owner and teacher of Luna Power Yoga! She was first introduced to yoga back in college, practiced throughout graduate school and flowed her way into her career as a high school counselor, where she worked full time for just about 6 years. She earned her RYT 200 hour cert. when she was living in Hoboken, NJ, through Yoga in the World under Anayra Calderon, and has many great memories teaching and building connections in some of her favorite hot power studios there.

In December 2020, Cate made the decision to close the chapter of her counseling career to fulfill other dreams and start a new chapter in her life in upstate NY – back home. She is always searching for the beauty around her, in nature, and in those she encounters along her journey in life. One of her favorite mantras is, “let the journey unfold, let it be magical” by Melody Beattie.

Cate is thrilled to have this opportunity in curating this *small* but *mighty* space where all members from the community can come together to move, sweat, and breathe.
