    Ep84 | Katie Nassiff: Katie Nassiff Movement + Highland Yoga

    Welcome back, Atlanta! Today, we are joined by Highland Yoga's very own Katie Nassiff. Katie is very diverse in her knowledge and her intentions of what she is trying to do in the health and wellness scene here in Atlanta! Katie started practicing yoga in 2010 as a complement to running, and weight training. In 2014, she moved to New York City and began a consistent studio practice, finding that Vinyasa inspired her to feel empowered and connected to herself and the community. Shortly after moving to Atlanta in 2018, she started practicing at Highland Yoga, where she then completed her 200-hour teacher training in Spring 2019. Expect energetic classes with a focus on breath, alignment, and opportunities to deepen your practice!Check out Katie:Via website:  https://www.highland-yoga.com/ (https://www.highland-yoga.com/)Via Instagram: @highlandyoga
