Katie began her practice of yoga during those fantastic awkward high school years; she was constantly searching for a way to improve flexibility and bring calmness to an ever racing overactive mind. As her practice developed deeper, the allure of aggressive, competitive sports lost their appeal entirely. Since that time Katie has travelled throughout the world studying, practicing, and teaching yoga as an effort to be forever growing. As important as travel is, Halifax will always remain home to Katie and she considers each and every Haligonian her big extended family.
A volunteer at Out of the Cold Emergency Shelter and Big Brother’s Big Sisters Halifax, Katie has found opportunities to introduce yoga programs to both of these organization.
