Katie has over 17 years’ experience working with the body as a massage practitioner and has been teaching Iyengar yoga in Bellingham since 2005. She was initially drawn to yoga as a way to increase strength and flexibility in order to be more content in her work as a massage therapist. She quickly recognized yoga as an excellent tool for self-care and discovery and has been practicing ever since. Katie offers her students insight into their unique physical patterns and loves to work with people to find more balanced ways of being and moving in the world. Her classes are fun, educational, challenging and deeply nourishing. Katie is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and the owner of Repose Bodywork Studio where she offers massage therapy and private yoga instruction.
In addition to her massage and yoga certificates, Katie holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Fairhaven College. She believes that learning is a lifelong process and regularly attends advanced bodywork and yoga trainings.
When not at work, Katie is busy chasing after her two boys Isaac (4) and Ian (2). She loves to camp on the beach, sail in the San Juans, ride her bicycle, and read murder mystery novels. In her former life (before kids), Katie was an avid gardener but now she spends her free time kicking balls and playing with Legos. She is thankful that Bellingham is her home.
