I fell in love with yoga in the late 1990’s. I decided I wanted to learn to teach yoga and completed my 200-hr teacher training in May 2014 at YOGAlicious.
I was raised in the Low country and moved to Spartanburg in 2004. My husband, Don and I now raise our three kids Mason, Chase, and Hannah and tend and grow our farm in Walnut Grove.

Katherine returned to her native Spartanburg four years ago after thirty years in the Charleston area. An avid runner since her mid-twenties, she always thought she was too “American” for yoga. Encouraged by friends, she took her first yoga class over six years ago and was hooked. It was the perfect complement to running at the time, and has now become her passion. YOGAlicious became her refuge upon making the transition back to Spartanburg. Katherine wants to share the strengthening and healing that a regular yoga practice brings with our community.
I completed the 230-hour yoga teacher training program at Asheville Yoga Center in November 2013. I have practiced Yoga sporadically over the past ten years but it wasn’t until after I became more disciplined with my practice that I truly understood the transformative outcome. I am fascinated by the spiritual, mental, and physical healing that the practice of Yoga facilitates. By unwinding and alleviating the physical tension of the body through asana and breath we are able to detox our muscles, oxygenate our blood, and calm our mind. Once we remove the tension in our bodies and soothe our nervous system we can begin to restore and heal. For me, that is where the magic happens. We are more creative and able to tackle life with a positive outlook and open heart when our body and mind are harmonious. It is my hope as a teacher to inspire and help others feel better and flourish by incorporating Yoga into their lives.
