$10 Drop In Join Katie Carola for a prenatal yoga class! Having a Midwife as a mother has given Katie has a strong desire to assist women in finding strength and empowerment through pregnancy and motherhood. Her prenatal classes are designed to offer pregnant women ways to safely enjoy moving their ever-changing bodies, while incorporating breathing techniques for labor and birth. Katie fell in love with yoga 18 years ago. Having studied classical ballet from a young age, she has always been inspired by movement. At the age of 13, she became a Reiki practitioner, which sparked her interest in energy and healing; and through yoga, she found the beautiful combination of movement and healing. After completing her BA in Philosophy, she went to Kripalu Yoga Center in MA in 2005 to earn her 200-hour yoga instructor certification. She has since returned to Kripalu to work in their marketing department and to assist in their teacher trainings. Continuing her study of health and wellness, Katie received her 600- hour massage therapy training at New Jersey School of Massage. Katie is also a Certifed Prenatal and Perinatal Massage Therapist.
