Katie FulpRYT 200

    My yoga journey began early 2011 when I visited my dear friend Audrey in Chicago. She had been telling me about this hot yoga thing and some guy named Bikram, so I tagged along with her to one of her classes during my visit. Wow was it one of the most difficult workouts I have ever done! The after effects of the practice however, made the challenge totally worth it. I was shocked at how amazingly aware I became of the poor diet choices I had made that day and how they ultimately affected my practice. I quickly realized that the focus on the breath and keeping a calm mind during practice made me connect with my body in a way I have never been able to during a workout. It was the mind/body connection I had been missing. I was so thrilled to find a hot yoga studio in Springfield, MO. I began working in 1-2 classes a week and slowly built up to a full time practice. When the opportunity came up to train to be an instructor I couldn’t resist! Now I have begun a parallel journey as a yoga instructor and feel so blessed to be able to share my passion for yoga with others. What I love the most about this yoga is that it truly is for everyone. Everyday yoga for everyone! See you on your mat!
