Katie has been practising yoga for over fifteen years but not until the last few years did she fall in love with the practice. "To me, it became more than simply a workout or stretches, but it filled up my soul. Each time I left my mat, I felt like I knew myself a little better. I also felt a deeper connection with my body." Katie emphasises breath and alignment in her classes and loves to help her students discover that they are capable of so much more than they realise. She hopes her classes will offer a little something for everyone and that you will always leave feeling just a little more "full" than when you came.
Off her mat Katie enjoys hiking with her dogs, spending time in the sun, watching Netflix, travelling, camping, drinking tea, collecting succulents, laughing, making jewellery, 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 numerous alignment-based training 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 and Brian Kest. 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.

Yoga came into my life when I was working at a high pace busy office in downtown Ottawa 20 years ago.
My passion for yoga leads me to want to teach others on how this practice will benefit your body, mind, and soul.
My style of teaching is about using a balance of demonstrating, correcting, and motivating the class. I focus on breath, meditation, moving slowly, and gently and at the same time coming to your edge to get the full benefits of your yoga to practise.
My current emphasis is to work with specialised groups where yoga has been scientifically proven to benefit as a tool to overcome health and wellness barriers.
