KATIE ALEXANDER

Katie Alexander

Katie began her yoga journey in Boulder, Colorado in 2009 when her friend recommended she take a yoga class to help manage stress. A consistent yoga practice followed, not only helping reduce stress, but also resulting in countless other benefits like increased strength and flexibility both physically and mentally.

Katie completed a 200 hour teacher training program through CorePower Yoga in Denver, Colorado.  Immediately after earning her certificate, she continued her training for a 50 hour extensions program where she focused on hands on adjustments and presence as a teacher. In 2019, she completed a Yin Yoga training in Naples under the guidance of Amy Lucky. That same year, Revival Yoga provided an adjustments workshop with 500 hour certified instructor Kate Curry which Katie happily took to deepen her understanding of the benefits of adjusting students. 

She has taught in Colorado and Florida in a variety of settings, always encouraging students to listen to their own bodies and enjoy their time on the mat. She focuses her classes on proper alignment and breathe and loves helping yogis discover new things about their practice. It is her hope that students of all levels find comfort and joy in her class and are willing to try new asanas, use props, fall out of poses, look silly, shake it off, and laugh. 

It is with great respect and excitement that Katie gets to share her love of yoga as a teacher.
