Katie Whitsett joins the Yoga on High team after spending many years teaching art at a local non-profit afterschool program where she shared her passion for creativity and art with at-risk youth. Currently, Katie shares her sense of design, organization, quirk, and play with the Yoga on High and Sekoia team as Director of Marketing and Retail.
Several years ago, Katie’s personal journey led her to the study of Ashtanga yoga, Ayurveda and aromatherapy after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. Having experienced first hand the kindness and support of the Yoga on High community as well as the healing ability of yoga, Katie is inspired to share yoga and its powerful capacity to transform with others.
Katie is a 200 Hr RYT yoga instructor, a Reiki practitioner and Certified Sekoia Teacher. She has training in trauma sensitive yoga through the EMBER program and has completed iRest Level 1 training, a mindfulness based guided meditation method. Likewise, Katie is honored to be apart of the Yoga on High Foundation and the profound work that they do through serving on its advisory board.
When Katie isn’t at YoHi, you can find her enjoying the outdoors, working on her own art projects, making and eating good food with family and friends, and dreaming of the mountains.
