When she first started yoga, Katy had a hard time getting into it. Having spent most of her life living in her head, it was incredibly frustrating to try to connect to her body. But once that mind-body connection happened, she was hooked. After several other career ventures, Katy found herself in transition and needing structure in her day, so she enrolled in yoga teacher training. She didn’t intend to actually teach yoga, mostly due to her crippling anxiety speaking in front of people, but once she discovered the joy of sharing something she loved so much with others, she decided to put her other pursuits on hold and go for it as a yoga teacher. Katy currently operates out of the small town of Elgin, Texas through her company Body + Shine Wellness.
