Hi, I’m Katie! Yoga enthusiast, co-founder of WOWYoga (a mobile yoga company that specializes in kid, teen and family yoga), and super proud mom of two. I live for connection and adventures of all kinds. I love tapping into movement, creativity and silliness daily. When I’m not teaching or practicing yoga, you are likely to find me (alongside our little fam) enjoying a variety of outdoor activities and spending time with family and friends.
My yoga journey began in 2012, when I was pregnant with our daughter, and my dad surprised me with classes to prenatal yoga. The physical relief I felt in my body was immediate and, as I attended more classes, something inside began to wake-up and shift my awareness.
A class or two a week quickly turned into several, and I ended up joining a beautiful studio that would become my yoga-home and community for the next 8 years. The physical changes of gaining strength and flexibility were so empowering, however, the mental and emotional shifts and the teachings were what really propelled my practice.
In 2017, I decided to leave my corporate job and began training to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). Having two young kids at the time, my curiosity for kids yoga was in full force. Knowing how much yoga had positively impacted my mental, emotional and physical health, I kept wondering how transformative it would have been to have learnt about, and practiced, using these tools at a much younger age.
In 2019 & 2020, I completed two series of trainings (Canada and US), through Rainbow Kids Yoga, and received my designation as a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT). I was blown away by the creativity, energy and playfulness of this yoga training and I cannot wait to share the magic of this practice with the youth and families of PTBO.
