Katherine was hooked on yoga from her first introduction to Pranayama in the early eighties. The discovery of the power of the mind and breath was intriguing. Later, as yoga classes began to be more accessible, Katherine began to study asana as well, and was enthused by the connection of the mind and body, and the spiritual and psychic awareness experienced through the practice of yoga. She believes that yoga can transform the personality, in addition to transforming the body.
Katherine is a graduate of the Sacred Well Teacher Training Program in 2009. In this training she learned the Iyengar approach to asana, with his concentration in body alignment. This is a natural fit for Katherine because she also holds a BA in Biology. (Sacred Well has since merged with Blue Nectar, in Falls Church, VA.) Katherine continued to teach and to experience other yogic traditions, and in 2014 started her journey of 500 Hours Advanced Teacher Training at Beloved Yoga, Reston, VA, graduating in spring of 2015. Katherine has, through her years of teaching, and as a 500 hour advanced teacher, learned to adapt each class in the Viniyoga style. She is also trained in Therapeutic Yoga.
Katherine approaches each class with the attitude, "We are all teachers and we are all students.
