My Yoga Journey

I have been practicing yoga for over twenty years.  I began my yoga journey in New York City where I was influenced by many teachers and styles. In 2015, I was introduced to The Chicago Yoga Center, owned and operated by Suddha Weixler, and it was here that I obtained my 200-hr yoga teacher certificate under the guidance of Suddha. I went on to complete a children’s yoga teacher training with Om Slice Kids Yoga and a Restorative Yoga training with Leann Carey at Moksha Yoga Center, Chicago.  Most recently, I have completed the 300-hr Advanced Yoga Therapy training program with Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School.  Under the tutelage of J.J. Gormley and Laura Jane Mellencamp, I earned a yoga teacher certificate in the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya and T.K.V Desikachar.  Currently, I am in the 3rd year of studying Yoga Therapy as it was taught by T.K.V. Desikachar.   This is the final step in the 900-hr Yoga Therapy Certification process as recognized by the IAYT.

Katie is a 500-hr registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance , RYT 500, with additional hours of continuing education.   She is a member of  IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists).
