Katie began practicing yoga to cope with life’s daily stresses. After noticing the positive impact, physically and mentally, she was drawn to establish a consistent practice.
Along with a passion for yoga, Katie has a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology with extensive knowledge and training in anxiety disorders. While in graduate school, she became interested in the therapeutic benefits of yoga while studying the effects of meditation and mindfulness on stress reduction in children. She fell even more in love with the practice of yoga and became certified to teach.
The mind-body connection will always fascinate Katie and inform her teaching style. She specializes in Vinyasa, and her classes blend mindfulness, stress relief, and cognitive awareness with anatomy, alignment, and biomechanics. Although she includes tidbits of information throughout her practices, Katie teaches with a very lighthearted approach– her classes are fun and playful!
Katie strives to create a safe space for all of her students, allowing creativity and expression, as we are unique individuals. Although the teacher is essential for guidance, the practice of yoga comes from within, and Katie believes only the student knows what feels good in their body and mind.
