My Yoga Journey

I found yoga, or rather yoga found me, in New York City in 1998.  In NYC I was taught and influenced by many different teachers and styles of yoga.  I continued to practice yoga while working in the fashion industry and then eventually moving to Philadelphia and Princeton, NJ.    In 2015, I moved to the Midwest and it was here that I was introduced to The Chicago Yoga Center, owned and operated by Suddha Weixler.  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. 


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.  Most recently, I have studied Yoga Nidra with Jennifer Reis and I have completed the Divine Sleep®  Yoga Nidra teacher training.  I am also currently studying prenatal yoga and I am working towards certification as a Postpartum Doula, a certification that is recognized by DONA International. 

Katie is a 500-hr registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance , RYT 500, with additional hours of continuing education in children's yoga, restorative yoga, and yoga nidra.
