What is TRX?
TRX was invented by a Navy Seal. He needed a way to keep himself and his fellow SEALs in top shape no matter where they were in the world, whether conducting a mission or standing by. Since all of their deployments are covert in nature, the SEALs can’t just walk into a gym for a workout. Thus the TRX was born.
So what is this training system all about? It consists of two adjustable nylon straps with handles and foot cradles attached to each strap. What’s really cool about this simple apparatus is that you can use it anywhere, indoors or out. Simply attach the system to a secure anchor point, e.g., a door, a hook on the wall, a tree or fence—you can hang this trainer anywhere. (Reference from www.officer.com)

What is Yoga?
The whole system of Yoga is built on three main structures: exercise, breathing, and meditation. The exercises of Yoga are designed to put pressure on the glandular systems of the body, thereby increasing its efficiency and total health. The body is looked upon as the primary instrument that enables us to work and evolve in the world, and so a Yoga student treats it with great care and respect. Breathing techniques are based on the concept that breath is the source of life in the body. The Yoga student gently increases breath control to improve the health and function of both body and mind. These two systems of exercise and breathing then prepare the body and mind for meditation, and the student finds an easy approach to a quiet mind that allows silence and healing from everyday stress. Regular daily practice of all three parts of this structure of Yoga produce a clear, bright mind and a strong, capable body. (Referenced by the American Yoga Association)

A little about KATIE: Having taught mixed level yoga classes for the past 9 years, Katie decided to
update her skills with a ten month 200hr intensive teacher training program to become a
nationally accredited yoga trainer that completed this November. Her path of yoga has led her on
a journey of building self-love and acceptance, which has resulted in losing nearly 40-lbs and no
longer diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. Katie wants to be an active advocate that yoga is for
every BODY type and through proper alignment and modification of poses it can definitely be a
life changer. It certainly can help release judgement and competition while still bringing strength
and stability to each student. Katie has also enjoyed a rewarding sixteen year career as a
massage therapist and is truly blessed to be “Mom” to her young son and daughte
