Katie Beane,RYT 500hr, is a mama, yogini, energy worker, and Love Warrior. She loves the moon, a good belly laugh, spending time with her heart-tribe, reading great books under soft blankets, and unexpected adventures. She began practicing yoga and meditation while caring for her terminally ill mother and found a sense of peace and calm on her mat that she craved during a chaotic and painful time in her life. Since then, yoga has become her touchstone, and has helped her to appreciate and celebrate her body and mind, stay centered—regardless of what life brings—and serve others. Katie brings a deep respect for ALL bodies to her teaching and is passionate about offering a practice that feels safe, accessible, and inclusive.
Katie completed her 200hr and 500hr vinyasa yoga certifications through Jacqui Bonwell's Sacred Seeds Yoga School and is currently a lead teacher for the Sacred Seeds 200-hour training programs in Maine. She completed a Pre-Natal Teacher Training with Amy Hopkins at GLOW Holistic Wellness Studio in York, Maine; is a certified birth educator through both Sacred Pregnancy and Calm Birth programs; and a Birth Roots-trained doula. She participated in the Yoga for All body-positive teacher training with Amber Carnes and Dianne Bondy, as well as Chelsea Roff's Eat, Breathe, Thrive: Yoga, Food, and Body Image Intensive in 2015. Most recently, she completed Sagel Urlacher's Yin Yoga teacher training, and became a certified Balanced Athlete Coach with Johnny Gillespie. She has received additional training in teaching trauma-sensitive yoga at Bridge Studio at Art of Awareness in South Portland where she is employed. Katie is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Mindfulness Studies at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
