Hi, I’m Kate!

I’m a yoga teacher and mindful parenting coach who helps highly sensitive parents self-regulate so they can enjoy parenting their atypical kids.

Advance praise for Atypical Kids, Mindful Parents:

"This book is a godsend for parents who want to help their atypical kids blossom and thrive while also caring for themselves. Kate Lynch provides a desperately needed roadmap through challenging territory."

Long bio:

Kate Lynch (she/her) is the parent of an amazing atypical kid, a gentle yoga teacher, and author of the upcoming book Atypical Kids, Mindful Parents: The joys and struggles of raising neurodivergent kids. 

She's a mindful parenting coach, a cycle breaker, and disability justice advocate who has been supporting parents since 2002. Since then she has shared the tools that help her find joy, healing and calm (in the face of self-doubt, pain and anxiety). 

Her courses, workshops and retreats are welcoming, friendly, and intuitive, and reflect her core values: empathy, integrity, equity, and respect. Kate encourages a collective sense of belonging. 

Kate's students include highly sensitive, empathetic people who want to break cycles and co-create a more inclusive future. 

She specializes in teaching mindfulness tools to anxious parents of atypical kids. These simple strategies help parents feel calmer, no matter how intense their neurodivergent kid is in the moment. 

Kate has advanced training in mindfulness, meditation, polyvagal-informed therapeutic movement practices, prenatal and postpartum yoga, yoga for kids, and integrating equity. She offers accessible variations, and encourages self-respect, mindful breathing, and awareness.

Kate's little neurodiverse family lives in a magical land called Brooklyn (AKA Lenape territory). In her role as Ocean’s mama, Kate continues to learn about advocacy and neurodiversity. 

She blogs at Compassion & Yoga Blog and Atypical Kids, Mindful Parents Blog.

Kate writes for Mutha Magazine, Autism Advocate Parenting Magazine, Autism Parenting Magazine, Accessible Yoga Blog, The Good Men Project, and The Mighty. She's a top writer in Mindfulness and Parenting on Medium, where her work has been published in Better Humans, Family Matters, and Age of Empathy among others, and has over 11,000 followers. 

Kate's teachers include Bo Forbes, Seane Corn, and  Michelle Cassandra Johnson, and she is profoundly influenced by Tara Brach and Thich Nhat Hanh. 

“The way she teaches - direct, clear, nothing extra but nothing held back, lets the yoga do the work and tells you just what is helpful to give you focus and intention.”
