Katelyn Qualey, an E-RYT 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher, began practicing Iyengar yoga in 2007 to ease the discomfort caused by scoliosis. After spinal fusion surgery a few years later, yoga was integral to maintaining a balanced body. Deepening her practice, Katelyn completed a 200 hour teacher training program at YogaWorks in 2012, after which she began teaching and in 2016 finished up her 300 hour training with Pure Flow Yoga. She is always learning and has completed numerous trainings including, yoga for scoliosis workshop/training with Elise Miller Browning, and several anatomy, advanced asana and sequencing trainings. She also leads 200 & 300 hour teacher trainings.
As an instructor, Katelyn’s goal is to facilitate a safe and joyful experience for each unique practitioner. Her hope is to create an environment where students feel safe challenging themselves while taking modifications and support when necessary. She cares immensely about being an attentive teacher and it is her sincere objective to learn and improve as a teacher (and person) through connections with all types of students. And with a yoga practice, we’re always students!
