Meet Katie. She’s been a personal friend of mine for close to a decade, and is married to ultrarunner Doug Hay, who you know probably know as the co-host of No Meat Athlete Radio.
Katie has been practicing yoga since she was a teen, and is now a practicing Yoga Therapist and Teacher in Black Mountain, NC. She’s a certified Yoga Therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists and a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher.
And if there's one thing she's learned from her 15+ years practicing yoga, and eight years teaching it, it's this:
Yoga has the power to transform anyone. Not just the fit or super bendy. Not just women or young people. Anyone.
This healing power comes from its ability to empower people to transform: relieving aches and pains, healing injury, shifting deeply held habits, altering patterns of stress or uncertainty, and connecting those who practice yoga to something greater than themselves.
Through Katie's weekly classes and Yoga Therapy sessions, she works with students young and old, each with their own unique mental and physical reasons for attending. She sees firsthand the calm, energy, focus, purpose, strength, and ease they gain through their practice.
Yoga might sound intimating, perhaps out of reach, meant for others but not for you. But as Katie likes to say, yoga is for everyone.
And with her help, you too can experience the physical and emotional benefits of a regular yoga practice... no matter who you are.
