Katie is a born and raised New Yorker who began practicing yoga in 2010 after a lifetime of gymnastics and collegiate diving.
What began as a way to continue inversions and intensity of an athletic lifestyle, started to transform to additional benefits of meditation and flexibility.
Katie started a daily practice of Ashtanga yoga and traveled to Goa, India in 2018 to become certified in both Ashtanga and Vinyasa. It was there that she developed a strong meditation practice and deeper appreciation for the history of yoga and culture.
She hoped to bring those skills and knowledge back to the hectic energy of NYC. When she found Fierce Grace she found exactly what she was looking for. She completed her 100hr graduate teacher training in Fall of 2022 and has been teaching there since.
Katie is also a pediatric nurse practitioner and lives in Manhattan with her boyfriend and Dalmatian, Penny Lane.
