Albany NY native Katie Collins journey of yoga began when she attended one of Wanderlust’s first yoga festivals in Vermont. It was here that she was called to witness the impact of cultivating connections with like-minded people. Immediately, she knew she wanted to start teaching right away. Fast forward two years later, Katie was introduced to SUP yoga through the teachings of Rachel Brathen and Jessica Taylor. Katie completed her 200 hour and 300 hour yoga training under the guidance of Justin Wolfer in Saratoga Springs and quickly learned what it meant to embrace her practice with mind, body and spirit! Katie is now a 500 hour certified yoga instructor, BOGAYOGA stand up paddleboard instructor and registered nurse. She teaches and shares her passions of strong vinyasa yoga, yoga for athletes, sup yoga and conscious living to the world. Katie’s RN degree with focus on anatomy has allowed her to work privately with many bodies, injuries, division one and professional athletes. Part time mermaid, Katie teaches her SUP liquid yoga across the country and is honored to be apart of Wanderlust festival for her third consecutive year. Katie is a firm believer that yoga is to be lived, not just performed. Join Katie in class to learn more about diving deep into a yogic lifestyle with a splash of whit and lighthearted humor.
