Simply put, Katie Brauer is a Force of Nature. Katie's classes are powerful, primal and playful, blending raw sensuality, motion and emotion with random bits of humor. Her spontaneous yet measured approach to yoga practice is a truly unique flavor, and her background as a top-flight athlete shows. Katie's brand of teaching is especially satisfying - Dylan Barmmer
Known for her inspirational teaching style, Katie’s classes are laced with dynamic flow, yoga philosophy, technical alignment and heartfelt humor. She is deeply inspired by surfing, love of the ocean and the intelligent rhythms of the fluid system of the body. She infuses her extensive studies in Craniosacral Therapy, Kung Fu and Somatic Movement into a progressive approach to yoga that invites students to feel inspired, aligned and fully alive, on and off the mat.
Katie’s introduction to yoga arose as a resource for rehabilitation from serious injuries sustained during her 7 year career as a professional snowboarder.
Currently based in the sparkling San Diego surf enclave of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA, Katie serves as the Director of Teacher Trainings at Haute Yoga, leads workshops and works with private clients from high profile Olympians, professional athletes, and celebrities to students in her weekly classes. In her ongoing involvement in the community Katie serves as ambassador for Ritual Cleanse, Lulu Lemon, Toe Sox and Nika Water.
Katie is devoted to sharing yoga as a gateway for optimal balance and deeper life enquiry.
