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.
Katie’s personal journey led her to the study of yoga and meditation after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. Having experienced first hand the kindness and support of the yoga 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 an artist, nature lover and joy seeker. She is a 200 RYT yoga instructor, iRest® Yoga Nidra level 1 meditation teacher, Reiki practitioner and certified Sekoia™ teacher. She is passionate about sharing yoga with youth, special populations and adults seeking to find ease and wholeness through meditation, movement and art. She completed her 100 hour EMBER™ trauma sensitive yoga program through Yoga on High and is honored to be apart of the Yoga on High Foundation and the profound work that they do through serving on its advisory board and teaching trauma informed yoga classes.
Holding a BA in Studio Art from Hanover College, Katie has melded her art and yoga lineages, using art and meditation as mediums for exploring breath, energy, Reiki and the beauty offered by nature.
In addition to all things yoga, you can find Katie enjoying the outdoors, working on her own art projects, making and eating good food with family and friends, and dreaming of the mountains.
