hello gorgeous

My name is Katelyn. My goal with my classes is to create a sense of community and joy. As an instructor, my goal is to teach a challenging and playful class, create a supportive community, and help you reach your full potential. As a trainer, my goal is to create an intelligent personal training plan with custom workouts aligned to your goals and that efficiently find progress.

certifications

I am a Certified 200 hour Yoga Teacher, a Certified Barre Instructor, and a Certified Personal Trainer. I started with my yoga teacher training at CorePower Yoga and a BarreAbove barre certification quickly followed. As I added more classes to my schedule, I added a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine in 2019. In the last four years, I've added a nutrition coaching certification and a certification in personal training programming.

my teaching journey

I started practicing yoga when I was young. My mom would pop in a VHS in our living room and invite me to follow Rodney Yee in those tight spandex shorts through a series of basic yoga stretches. The flow was full of intentional breathing, stillness, and learning how to live in my body. 

 

Learning how to live in my body and how to breathe slowly fascinated me as a kid and I developed a compassionate respect for yoga. I completed 200 hours of training in 8 weeks and became a certified yoga teacher.

I soon found my own teaching style with playful and challenging flows set to soulful r&b beats. I found I cared deeply about my students connecting with their body through breath-work over incorporating the spiritual or yogic philosophies.

Two years later, I started working as a part-time personal chef and decided to take my two-nights a week yoga teaching gig to a more part-time position. One of the gyms I was teaching at needed a teacher in the late mornings, Monday through Friday, but they wanted someone that could teach barre. So I got my barre certification, took a bunch of classes on Youtube, and started teaching. My first barre class, no one showed up. The next week, one person came. This class would grow to fill the room in a few short months.

I would go on to create my own format, Core & Stretch, which would go on to become one of my most beloved classes. I got certified in a few other formats and picked up more classes around Seattle. Eventually, I was able to leave my position as a personal-chef and teach full-time.

I became a NASM Certified Personal Trainer in 2019. When the gyms and studios shut down for COVID, I started teaching my own virtual classes online the next day to anyone that wanted to show up - and so this virtual space was born!

I would love to have you in a class and apart of the KPF community. You can find the class schedule here.

 

If you're interested in working one-on-one, I'd be honored to create a space of accountability and encouragement for you to thrive. Please email me here to see if we are a good fit!

To the KPF community, our community that has risen up is one of a kind, and I am honored to have each of you in my life.

 

Thank you.

what to expect in a class

I hope to create a playful, encouraging, and authentic community. Class begins with a question of the day to get to know the other students in the class and build trust and community. I've always believed it's easier to suffer in class together when you know each other's names. As you show up and share a little bit more about yourself, you'll find that you slowly have built this amazing community that thinks just as fondly of you as you do of them. It's hard to describe but amazing to experience.


During class I will be giving everyone general and individual cues to help avoid injuries and achieve proper form to get the most out of the class. Your safety is my top priority. Expect a lot of different options and modifications for each exercise.


Classes are intentionally challenging to give you something to work towards. This also serves as an excellent measurement tool for your progress. (I always encourage you to cuss me out if you need to during classes. You're muted anyways. And if you need to me to see your feelings, flip me the bird.) As you consistently show up for classes, you start to see your endurance and overall strength improve.

 

Also, expect us to celebrate you and the progress you've made because babe, you're amazing.
