About Katherine

My dedicated practice began in 2000 with David Ingalls at Ashtanga Yoga DC. I began teaching ashtanga yoga in 2004 at Aquatic FitnessCenter, GlaxsoSmithKline and select studios in Philadelphia. In 2006 I began study with Pattabhi Jois at his yoga shala in Mysore, India. I returned four times over six years to advance my practice. In 2010 Sharath Jois authorized me to teach, and I opened Yoga Mala Shala.

During a hiatus I examined my feminist values vis-a-vis tradition and lineage yoga. My teaching is "post-lineage," and is informed by the #metoo movement. Neither doctrinaire nor domineering, I care about adapting this system to the unique needs of individuals and learning to see rightly with the heart. At the heart of this yoga is relationship: from our innermost selves to each and every other. 

I offer ashtanga yoga classes in north central Austin: Mysore, Primary Series, Intro to Ashtanga, Private Consultations. My teacher registration with Yoga Alliance is active, and I continue training beyond the 500 hour level.
