Heading 3

  1. Managing Director
Katie began taking yoga classes in 1999 while in Chinese Medicine school.  At this time Katie was in Graduate School, raising her two step sons, her son and daughter were in college, she was coaching swimming full time for Texas Aquatics and she married to her husband Robert.  She knew she needed to fin a way to calm her mind and manage her stress.

When Katie was young she loved twisting and turning her body into different shapes.  Her mom told her she was doing yoga and so Katie would practice a little everyday.  (totally self taught)  Katie also loved walking herself and her mom through guided meditations to relax at night.  So, it was only natural when she located a yoga studio and began to practice.  

Though Graduate School Katie practiced at Yoga Yoga almost everyday of the week.  After graduating she too a short break to open her practice. and eventually decided to become a teacher.  She took her teacher training with Mandy Eubanks at Castle Hill Fitness.  Mandy was
a inspriation and wonderful teacher.  She has taken many trainings with Jenn Wooten, Angie DuBoise Knight, Kim Shaefer and Mary Richardson. 

In Katie's classes you will find a fun, light hearted practice.  Katie teaches you to take your practice lightly and how to feel the changes in your body.  It's important to her that you never forget it is your practice that can last a life time.
