Katie Armstrong is a yogini living in Boulder Colorado.
Katie has been practicing yoga for ten years. Her first class was at Richard Freeman’s studio, the Yoga Workshop (www.yogaworkshop.com), which she attended while recovering from two shattered cervical vertebrae.
Yoga was immediately appealing to Katie’s athletic sensibility. At different times in her life she has been a high level competitor in swimming, running, and triathlon. Katie recognized the transformative qualities of yoga both for the physical and emotional body. She often recalls the energetic shifts she experienced in her first hip opening class, and is quick to praise yoga for the spiritual awakenings it repeatedly offers.
Katie has taught ashtanga yoga and recently became certified to teach Prana Flow Yoga, a form of vinyasa flow yoga. Her current yoga guru is Shiva Rea (www.shivarea.com) and Katie is often found in Venice Beach, California at Shiva’s primary studio (http://www.exhalespa.com/Locations/CAVenice/default.aspx). Some of Katie’s favorite local teachers include: Shannon Paige Schneider (owner and teacher at omtime: www.omtime.com) and Michelle Anderson (from Studio Be: http://www.studiobeyoga.com; see also www.lightspirityoga.com/about.html).
Among her many hats, Katie is also an attorney, entrepreneur, and artist. She loves to travel and finds great pleasure in sharing her passion for life with other people.
