An avid rock climber, skier and trail runner, Katie, and with the help of her teachers, has worked through tightness and injuries in her own body. Due to her experiences, she enjoys working with athletes to promote yoga as therapy.

What do you love about yoga? 

What I love about yoga is that it helps me calm down. As a “type A” person, yoga has been a great way to bring balance into my life.

What do you love about the practice?

When I practice, I feel an expansion in my body and breath, and it brings me to the present moment. As a climber, I appreciate that it helps to strengthen and lengthen my entire body.

What’s your benefit from being a yoga practitioner? 

Yoga has greatly contributed to my climbing objectives.  It has taught me how to breathe, and that has enhanced every other aspect of my life; not only in athletic endeavors but also in the day-to-day.
