Katie began her first yoga practice during her senior year of college at a local studio in Baton Rouge. As she began working full time, she found it difficult to keep that practice up. Over the years, through various career changes and a move back to the DFW area, she found herself practicing when ever she could squeeze it in. She has always considered yoga to be the perfect balance of exercise and emotional betterment. Coming back to yoga in times of stress and struggle has always been a calming journey towards peace for Katie.
Katie moved to Dallas in 2015 and, with the help of a friend’s suggestion and a Groupon, found herself at YogaSport within a month. She fell in love with the YS community on that first day. Katie jumped at the opportunity to get involved and learn more about the Baptiste practice. It wasn’t long before she signed up for level one assisting. The process of becoming an assistant has been a challenging yet empowering one.
Katie holds a Sociology degree from Louisiana State University and a Masters in Criminal Justice from University of Texas at Arlington. Katie is currently working as a relative adoption worker at Child Protective Services.
