Today we’d like to introduce you to Katherine White.
Katherine, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
After a background in Events Management for a number of large international corporations, I decided on career change in my late 20s. I received my RYT-200hour certification from Zarnay Yoga in 2009 and started teaching that year. I was subbing at a local yoga studio, YogaBalance, and the owners of the studio asked me to help out around the office and within a year, I was managing the studio! I received my second RYT-200hour certification from YogaWorks in 2013, my RYT-500hour certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in 2014, her , and successfully passed the rigorous and prestigious YogaWorks Certification Assessment in NYC in 2014. I have assisted Natasha Rizopoulos and Jocelyn Casey-Whiteman with their YogaWorks yoga teacher trainings in Boston and NH respectively.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Working at YogaBalance is a pleasure. The studio has existed since 2004 and was bought by the current owners in 2008. Our location changed a lot in those first few years, but we have been in our current location since 2010. We have been blessed with many amazing teachers on staff and incredible students – our struggles have not been a great as our blessings.
