The past 10 years she taught club yoga in Tacoma and now, in her home town, studio yoga at Harbor Fit. She received her RYT 200hr. in 2006 from YogaFit. Gail says, “I have lived with severe scoliosis since childhood. Yoga helps me align and keep my spine and body flexible and active. I have had the pleasure to teach to the elderly, high school students, and people with special health issues, knowing that through the practice of yoga
the mind can be calmed, the spirit uplifted, and the body brought to new levels of flexibility, alignment, and strength.”
Katie teaches multi-level yoga classes at community fitness centers in the Gig Harbor area. She discovered yoga during a period of illness in 2010 and was pleasantly surprised by how much it improved her chronic lung condition, overall fitness, and quality of life. Her classes are informed by this experience and her subsequent training through Yogafit, a training designed to make yoga accessible to everyone, not just the super-fit. Her teaching style incorporates flowing series of poses that link breath with motion, thoughtful consideration of her students’ abilities, and gentle guidance in healthy body alignment.
