Katie has been practicing yoga for 8 years, beginning yoga initially to complement other sports. As yoga became a part of her daily life, she realized the benefits of the practice beyond the physical, including the emotional, mental, and energetic. After a backpacking trip through South America, she took the opportunity to become an RYT 200 certified teacher. She is honored by the opportunity to share her interpretation of yoga with others. She seeks to specialize each session to the individuals in the class and likes to keep sequences fresh, new, and creative.
Anna, founder of Exhale Yoga, has been practicing and teaching yoga for several years. Having such involvement within the wellness industry, she believes that great internal healing can come from a sound yoga practice. She says yoga saved her when she was going through some of the toughest times of her life. Her gift with working with people and helping them find healing and balance has brought her to a new level on her yoga journey. It's because of yoga's countless benefits she felt opening her own studio was the best way to reach the many people struggling from various health issues, such as: strained muscles, back injuries, depression, weight struggles, PTSD etc.
Anna's goal is to help bring balance, strength, and versatility to your routine.
