Katelyn-Coach

Boxer, runner, singer, student, teacher, and YOGI. Katelyn is our on site Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Instructor. When asked why Katelyn got into yoga her response was, “I learned that with yoga I would be able to continue doing the things I love. Yoga taught me humility every time I fall out of a handstand, compassion in each sun salutation, ahimsa with every posture, and meta in every breath. Yoga taught me a connection through my movements with my mind and spirit that I can use in every situation in every posture that the day puts us in. I have such a passion for teaching yoga and in every class I teach I find that I am not the teacher but the student learning from the practice and those around me still. I want to share this gift with everyone open to receive.”

Katelyn has taught yoga in Baja Norte Mexico, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and many places all over the valley. We are lucky to have her helping all of us get more bendy.
