Katie began practicing yoga in 2010 while she was in college. She immediately fell in love with it and its benefits. Yoga was a way to cope with anxiety and to get an awesome workout! She loved yoga so much she began searching for trainings and a 200 hour teacher training program. She began teaching at her university’s recreational center during and after college. During college she found a studio that taught Bapsiste Power Vinyasa classes, and she could not get enough. She never experienced this kind of energy and challenge in yoga. Everything about this practiced empowered and excited her life! She wanted a community like this to be a part of her life. After graduating and beginning a public school teaching career, a studio like this was nowhere near where she lived or worked. Katie went a few years practicing yoga on her own.
In March of 2016, Katie came to YogaSport for the first time. She was seeking for a new yoga studio. Her husband’s job was bringing them to Dallas that summer. It was love at first power flow! Finally, she found an amazing Baptiste style studio that would be close to home and just like a home! She practiced at YogaSport for a year and signed up for the YSYS 200 Hr Teacher Training and Empowered Assistant Training Level 1.
In the summer of 2017, Katie completed her 200 Hr RYT Certification and Assistant Training.
Katie has a Bachelor’s in Music Education from Sam Houston State University. She taught 6th-8th grade band and Kinder-5th grade elementary music before YogaSport.
