Katie Laferriere Teacher

About Katie

Teaching style
My teaching encourages people to let their breath and their intuition guide them, accepting themselves – mind and body – where they’re at right now. I love to create flow-style classes that are fun, empowering, intelligently sequenced, adaptable & accessible, with lots of room for building strength, balance, and flexibility.

- Advanced Vinyasa Flow Training, 40 hours (Dec. 2016)
- Yogini Yoga Training – Moon Cycles & Seasons, 19 hours (Apr. 2016)
- Sacred Movement Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, 200 hours (Dec. 2015)

I am continuously expanding my yoga education through training, reading, and practice on and off the mat.

Why I teach
Yoga has helped me to foster the happy, healthy, balanced lifestyle that I am so passionate about, and I aim to help others do the same. I want to inspire people to embrace holistic well-being and find balance & self-acceptance – on and off the mat; physically, mentally, and emotionally – through the practice of Yoga.

Before yoga
I was a serial academic, in school for twenty years straight before I jumped right into a job after completing my Master’s. I was craving a change of pace so I left my job, traveled for three months, and returned the day before the start of my first Yoga Teacher Training. I haven’t looked back since! When I’m not teaching or practicing, you can find me rock climbing, cooking, and spending as much time as possible outside.
