Katie’s practice is fueled by the desire to cultivate awareness of body and mind, by integrating an acute attention to anatomical form of postures with Pranayama breath work that drives a heart-full and flowing Vinyasa. Life continues to teach her of its precious and precarious nature – all too fleeting, even before factoring in the ever-accelerating pace of a modern at increasing disconnect with itself. Today, nothing could be more sacred than returning to consciousness, time and again. After 10 years of practice at various studios in Los Angeles, Colorado, and her hometown of Portland, OR, Katie was thrilled to study with Tiffany Cruikshank, of Yoga Medicine, and received her 200-hr RYT in 2015. Always seeking to find balance of discipline and light-heartedness, challenge and reprieve, her classes vary from a slower-paced, calming flow, to more rigorous and playful sequences, in both private and group settings. Katie is ever-humbled by her own evolving practice and a constant quest to learn from her beloved teachers and students alike. She believes there is a yoga fit for everyone, and her hope is to help to facilitate it with attentiveness, compassion, and a sense of humor through all. Namaste!
