More Information
Katie Brandes (LMT, E-RYT 500, RCYT, RPYT, YACEP) began yoga in 2005 after experiencing extreme anxiety brought on by stress. She sought yoga as a means of relief and instead found a new way of life. After completing her 200-hour yoga certification in Orlando, Katie immediately sought out more training. Katie is now certified in Hatha Yoga, Kids Yoga, Chair Yoga, Senior Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Laughter Yoga, Yoga for Trauma, and Prenatal Yoga. She is a 95-hour Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher, 85-hour Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher, and registered as Experienced in the final 500 Hour level of Yoga Training. She developed Online Kidding Around Yoga in 2013 and become lead trainer for Kidding Around Yoga’s 95 Hour RCYT program and a guest trainer at Pose by Pose Yoga in Tampa. In 2018, Katie had the honor of teaching Yoga at Orlando Health Cancer Center twice a week. She is also enrolled in Amy Wheeler's Optimal State Yoga Therapy program.

Katie is a self-described Yoga Anatomy “Enthusiast”, and her interest in Anatomy lead her to become trained as a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Florida (MA89708). She currently specializes in modalities consisting of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, Reflexology as well as Chair Massage. She is also certified in Thai Bodywork, a passion of hers that combines both Yoga and Massage Therapy into a whole-body treatment.

She resides in Gainesville, FL with her husband and daughter. She is a mother first and foremost. But bodywork is her passion. When she isn’t spending time with family, you will find her studying, creating art or doing graphic & web design.
