Katie was born and raised in RVA and attended James Madison University (GO DUKES!) where she majored in Art History and Photography. She has been working in Sales the past 6 years and considers herself a “foodie” so she recently took her interest for food, photography, health and fitness and transformed it into an inspiring and booming Instagram account and blog (@realfoodwithgratitude). Over the years, she tried everyone workout in the book but it was not until she discovered barre (especially hot barre) how much she fell in love with it and even the idea of working out in general. She believes in finding what works for YOU, enjoy it and become passionate about it. She is excited to share this passion with each and every one of you at The Hot Yoga Barre!
