Katie Thacker


I am a yoga teacher, plant eater and nature appreciator. Through my yoga teachings I strive to provide a balance of breath, fluid movement and alignment. I teach a strong style of vinyasa filled with creative sequencing, unique transitions and carefully selected playlists. I am also a certified yin teacher. When teaching yin I focus on providing a place for stillness, silence and self love. Teaching acro yoga allows me the opportunity to constantly work to create a more inclusive and accepting community. Acro yoga has helped me to develop my communication skills, my relationships with my partner and my friends, and provides me with a continuous challenge to improve. It is also incredibly fun. When is the last time you played like a child?

As a yoga teacher, I hope that I can guide my students on their own path to a healthy and balanced life. I love to see progress in my students and I share with an open heart, nothing held back. I want to encourage a strong relationship with nature and a strong relationship with all people. We are all on this earth together, and together we can make it blissful and beautiful.
