Since I’ve been here at Fremont, the compliments and comments Katelyn Page has received have been plentiful. “She’s so creative” “She’s is so inclusive” are among some of the things I’ve heard. We finally have a moment and are able to get some comments from Katelyn herself. So, without much more ado, a few words from Katelyn:
Why/when/where did you decide that this was your passion? Because the time/risk it takes to educate yourself, become certified, build up a client base, etc. is rough, it must come from the heart right? Tell us your story!
I started yoga young with my mom whenever her back started hurting. I began feeling awareness of my body and my breath, and I felt empowered. I found my love for yoga then but I never took my practice seriously until I began my certification. I always thought teaching yoga would be a really fun job but it didn’t seem financially plausible. After I lost some close to me a few years ago, it shifted my perspective and I felt how short life really is. I decided to pursue my 200 hour certification but I didn’t have the two thousand dollar tuition. I reached out to my friends and everyone gave $10 or so. A few weeks later I was fully financially supported and signed up for certification! I have been learning ever since and love when my students ask questions and we get to learn together. I’ve found something that I not only love doing but I get to share with others.
Have a crazy plank idea? Or a circuit that really kills?
One legged triceps push-ups are killerrr. Alternate sides with a tricep push-up in between. Add in a few wide arm push-ups and you have a killer workout for the chest, triceps, hips, and core.
How about a spring recipe that is fresh & new?
My favorite spring recipe right now is to mix shrimp, mayo, lime, and arugula on a bun. Perfect for a picnic in the park. Pair it with some sparkling rose and you have the perfect date.
Any new ideas or workshops or plans for summer?
I would love to do a Candlelight Rooftop Yoga when it warms up, as well as implementing a Level Two Yoga Class for the more advanced students to have a place to challenge themselves. A Power Glow Yoga events with black-lights would be so much fun!
