People have described Katherine’s yoga classes as, “Lovely,” “Interesting,” “Challenging,” “I’ve never done that one pose before,” and “Best. Yoga class. EVER!”
To learn more about yoga and myself as an instructor, scroll down past my schedule. For when & where I’m teaching, see below.
- Yinyasa – every Wednesday during the Spring 2018 semester, 5:15-6:30PM at Colorado State University’s Campus Recreation Center in Studio #4. This all levels class is great for cross-training or for people who need to stretch more often! We begin with a warm-up, flowing between accessible but invigorating poses, and after 30ish minutes we transition into deep stretching postures, which we hold for longer periods of time, following the yin yoga tradition. We end in a relaxing savasana, a fancy Sanskrit yoga term which means simply lying down on your mat to rest and take it all in. Yoga classes at CSU cost $4 for a single class ($7 if you are not a CSU student), or you can buy a semester pass for unlimited yoga classes for $69.
- If you work at a desk all week, check out my blog for two posts on office yoga: one on stretches you can do at your desk, and this one for stretches you can do at home after a day at the office.
Yoga is an ancient practice that has evolved over many centuries to focus on wellness through a mind-body connection. Aspects of yoga include asanas (physical postures), breath work, meditation, self-care, philosophy, service, and spirituality. As a certified yoga instructor, my primary interest is in leading students through a practice of physical poses while incorporating other lessons to address common issues like anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, and common side effects of sedentary or active lifestyles.
I completed my 200-hour training at Blossom Yoga in Laramie, Wyoming and was registered as a certified yoga instructor with the Yoga Alliance in May 2014. I completed additional training in May 2015 in aerial yoga as well (Curious about aerial? Check out my blog post about it!). I have hundreds of hours of teaching experience, including group classes for children and adults in vinyasa flow, hot power, and aerial styles at all levels, as well as workshops for specific groups and corporate events. I teach weekly classes at Colorado State University’s gym in Fort Collins, Colorado (see above for my schedule).
It is my belief that yoga is for everyone, and every body. Not only does a regular yoga practice bring us healing, it also reintroduces us to our best selves.
