Katie Louvat has been teaching yoga for more than a decade. Her classes reflect her gentle and playful nature, her fascination with anatomy and alignment, and her dedication to a path of mindfulness. Inspired by both the Iyengar and Vini Yoga traditions, Katie’s carefully sequenced classes fluctuate between movement, stillness, breath-work and guided introspection. With warmth and attentiveness, Katie nurtures her students toward a deeper understanding of their bodies and an intimate, compassionate relationship with their inner selves. Her classes are appropriate for people of all ages, abilities, and bodies.
Katie is grateful for the guidance and wisdom she’s received from all of her teachers. She apprenticed with Kim Orenstein at Yoga Loka in Reno, NV, completing her 200-hour teacher training in 2004. She is a graduate of Judith Lasater’s “Relax and Renew” restorative yoga teacher training, and studies as often as possible with Ada Lusardi and the teaching staff at The Yoga Room in Berkeley, California.
“I am so very thankful for Katie Louvat Yoga! Katie’s deep understanding of the human body teaches me how to practice moving with intention and to treat my own body kindly. I hear her cuing me as I go about my day and in all other forms of exercise I participate in. Her classes are grounded, light-hearted, challenging in ways I never knew possible, and full of joy.” —Katie Anderson
“I have practiced yoga with Katie for the past eight years. She is without doubt the best yoga instructor I have had. Her warmth, compassion and eagerness to share what she has learned with her students are evident in every class. She adapts her instruction for all levels and encourages yoga practitioners to trust themselves. When I leave her yoga classes I feel renewed in body and spirit. She is a true inspiration!” —Kathy Bates
