Katie became a certified yoga instructor in 2012, after completing her training at the Asheville Yoga Center. She had originally come into the practice after being prescribed by her physician for her constant low back pain. Not long after taking up the practice the excercises proved to be effective, and she was inspired to learn more. As an elective she took yoga in college as she was pursuing her fine arts degree and eventually enrolled in the 200-hr teacher training program at Asheville Yoga Center. After graduating, she taught vinyasa style classes at the service based, Asheville Community Yoga Center. Katie recently graduated from UNCG, earning her B.S. in Nutrition and Wellness and her intention is to dedicate her time to helping people improve their lives through mindful exercise and conscious eating.
