Katie has been practicing yoga for over fifteen years and teaching since 2013. Her classes focus on breath, alignment, and strength as well as functional mobility. Her greatest hope in teaching is that she will inspire people to get to know themselves on a deeper level… to ask more questions, be more curious, pay more attention, and connect with that place deep inside of them that is their true essence. Whether you are coming to class purely for a workout, or maybe some mindful movement, or whatever else your reason might be…. she hopes her classes will offer a little something for everyone and that you will always leave feeling just a little more centered and grounded than when you came.
Off her mat Katie enjoys hiking with her dogs, spending time in the sun, watching Netflix, traveling, camping, drinking tea, collecting succulents, laughing, making jewelry, going on motorcycle rides with her husband, and eating delicious food — especially chocolate.
She received her 1,000 hr Yoga Teacher Certification through Inbody Academy in 2014 and has since attended various alignment based trainings in the Anusara (Inspired) method. She has taken immersions and workshops with Anusara Instructors Adam Ballenger, Christy Burnette, Sheldon & Lindsay Thieszen, Trista Winder, Sianna Sherman, and Sean Haleen… as well as Power Yoga instructors D’ana Baptiste, Brian Kest, and Ana Forrest. Katie continues to learn and grow as a teacher from continuing education classes, learning from her fellow teachers, and observing and connecting with her students. She also holds a Bachelors degree from the University of Utah in International Studies with a Minor in Chinese.
