Katie, a North Carolina native, began her yoga journey as a means to relax during graduate school in the beautiful Western NC mountains. She was first introduced to hot yoga shortly after moving to Greenville by a friend in 2011 and instantly became hooked. Through yoga Katie has gained a new perspective which helped her adapt to life changes more gracefully and has encouraged her to keep challenging herself and growing. Katie graduated from RYT 200 at Soul Yoga through the Baptiste Institute in May of 2017 and became certified as a yin instructor through Gioconda Parker’s training program at Soul Yoga in June of 2018. When she isn’t teaching or taking yoga classes, Katie enjoys hiking, kayaking, and spending time with her two rescued pups.
