Why, hello there!

Thanks for stopping by, my friend! Allow me to share my story with you, and maybe I'll be so lucky to hear yours one day. 

 My first encounter with yoga  happened sometime in the early 2000s , at the recommendation of a smart lady who was helping me learn how to manage my stress and anxiety. Shortly after, I acquired a VHS that featured soothing electronic music and some cast member who was once on MTV's The Real World who led me through a vigorous vinyasa flow. I was addicted, but I wasn't sure why. All I knew is that I liked how I felt after I practiced, so I kept doing it. 

In 2013, I decided to get really real with my practice, travel to Bali, and study with the wonderful folks at Awakened Life School of Yoga. I am currently based in Minneapolis with my husband and our charming dog, Doug.  Feel free to check out the Classes and Blog link to find out where I am currently teaching and what I'm thinking. You can also sign up for my occasional newsletter at the link at the bottom of the page, too. 

That's my story. What's yours?


The one-on-one yoga classes I took with Katie were fabulous. Not only is she very good at what she does (you can tell she practices what she preaches), but she is an extremely patient and attentive teacher. Her approach is simple, clear and friendly - hers is a heart-warming class to be in. In addition, she inspired me to take my yoga practice to the next level and am now on a journey to incorporating yoga into my daily life - not just in terms of the physical exercise but also in terms of living a more peaceful and fulfilling life. Thanks Katie!

Katie is a very positive and encouraging instructor. I really like how she takes the time to correct your position and ensure that you doing a pose in the right way. That's really important for a beginner like me!

It was my first Yoga session, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Katie really helped me feel at ease. She's a patient teacher and clearly explained each position and was helpful with her guidance. If you are looking for an experienced Yoga instructor who has a holistic outlook towards her lessons, and has a really fun personality, look no further! Thanks again!
