This class is taught by:

Katy Kopnitsky

Hi! I’m Katy Kop!
 
I teach yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices to adults and children! My foundational training is in a style of Vinyasa with strong ties to the Ashtanga tradition. I maintain a regular yoga practice encompassing a number of different styles and a regular meditation practice.
 
Upon completing my 200 hour RYT Training I immediately sought to continue my education by enrolling in additional specialized trainings to teach populations outside of yoga studios—from children and adolescents in the school system to adults in the criminal justice system. I firmly believe that yoga is for everyone. Since I believe yoga can help everyone, I aim to bring it to them anyway and anywhere I can—inside and outside the studio.
 
When I am not teaching in yoga studios you can find me teaching children in pre-schools, head-start programs, and elementary schools, or working with community-minded organizations to teach adults outside of traditional studio classes.
 
Yoga is an act of self-care that can benefit not just the individual practicing, but also the many individuals that person crosses paths outside of the four corners of their mat. Helping to foster this spread of equanimity and positivity by guiding people through their practice is my pursuit. I love the time I spend on my mat and I love to guide others through the time they spend on theirs! Let’s meditate in motion together. Let’s improve ourselves and our communities with our conscious breath and movement. Meet you on the mat!

Hi! I'm Juli!
 
Yoga has inspired and empowered me to do things I never thought were possible in my life, and this is just one of the reasons why I'm so passionate about sharing the practice with others. My hope is that each and every student will connect with their best teacher (the voice within) during practice and find what they need within themselves to be all they want to be in life. I believe the physical benefits of strength, flexibility, etc. are the bonus of doing yoga, so I can carry around my inspired and enlightened self in a healthy body.

Some of the most memorable and transformative moments in my life occurred during my teacher training at Kripalu and every day I continue to be amazed by the healing power of yoga physically, mentally and spiritually.
 
In class I will encourage you to just do you. It doesn't matter what anyone else is doing, honor you. Yoga is an avenue for self-discovery and self-compassion, without judgement. Let's ride the waves of life together on our yoga mats!  
A class designed for anyone interested in the benefits of yoga without having to sit on the floor. From a seated or supported standing position you will strengthen muscles, increase flexibility, practice balance, and experience breathing techniques to reduce stress and improve mental focus.
 
All levels welcome.
