Growing up, Kat had a passion for sports and staying active, mostly by tagging along with her big brother. After graduating from The University of Texas in 2006 with a degree in Marketing, Kat followed her interest in sports and began a career with the men’s basketball team at The University of Texas. Surrounded by athletes and a community focused on health, a friend and close mentor insisted she try yoga. In May 2008, Kat attended her first yoga class and was immediately hooked to the vigorous, yet highly rewarding practice. She finds yoga a perfect balance to counter the daily stresses of life as well as any wear and tear from strength training and running. Above all other physical activities, yoga is the most gratifying because of how healthy she feels in body and mind.
Kat earned her 200-hour RYT certification with Yoga Alliance in 2012 after completing the teacher training program at Breath and Body Yoga. Her classes incorporate a challenging flow focusing on alignment and a balance between strength and grace.
Kat works full time for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a military nonprofit organization that supports families of America’s fallen service members. In her spare time, Kat and her husband, Chris, love spending time outdoors in Austin with their dog, Bailey.
