 Katie was born and raised on a small farm in south Austin.  At a very young age Katie would practice her own made of form of yoga, never knowing there was such a thing.  To this day Katie remembers her mom telling her she was doing yoga.  Katie would also spend many evenings walking her mom through a guided meditation to relax her body and what she use to call letting your mind go blank.

Katie's goal is to help the people of Austin achieve their health and wellness goals.  She believes in a holistic approach to health and eating habits can cure a number of common health related problems.  At the same time learning to calm the mind, listen to the heart and let go of what is no longer serving us can lead to a healthy soul!
