Hi, I'm


The yoga practice and philosophy have

been instrumental in my personal

evolution. My teachings are inspired by

the opportunity for yoga to help

others on their individual journeys.


About Mermaid Yoga

Mermaid Yoga was created by fusing my passion for adventure and water with my deep love and reverence for the yoga practice.  We want our Standup paddle board (SUP) yoga students to have fun and build self-confidence as they take their yoga practice to the water.  We hope students walk away feeling empowered and maybe even inspired to pursue SUP or SUP yoga on their own.

2021 Schedule is live

SUP Locations

SUP Yoga Clear Lake

Clear Lake is a wonderful lake for SUP yoga, the lake itself is small enough to paddle around in about an hour and the water is usually calm.  The views of the surroundings are beautiful and the lake warms up nicely in the summer.

SUP Yoga Lake Whatcom

A new addition to our rotation in 2021, Lake Whatcom at Sudden Valley is a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. It offers a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle to work on our practice. 

SUP Yoga Bowman's Bay

Bowman’s Bay is located right around the corner from Deception Pass bridge, a must-see feature in the Pacific Northwest. The views are stunning, the water is generally glassy and the water is surprisingly warm in the area we anchor for the yoga practice.


As an occasional yoga practitioner and SUP first-timer, the changes in paddle-boarding acumen from minute one to minute ninety of the class were astonishing. Katie leads a thorough, all-inclusive class suitable for novice to experienced stand up paddle-boarders and yogis.

I love paddle boarding and being on the water, and I am incredibly grateful to Katie for introducing me to a new aspect of that.  Katie’s class is challenging, exciting, rewarding and relaxing.  It’s fun to try hard poses when you’re only worry is falling into the water!  My favorite part though was laying on the board, feeling my breath and listening to the water around me.  It was one of the most relaxing experiences. I’m looking forward to every opportunity I have to

join future classes on the water.

Even on a breezy Clear Lake evening this class was a blast, paddling out and back with the group was sweet too.  Katie’s instruction is fun and helps you explore your connection with the board and the water.  On a warm day, wear your swimsuit and really push yourself.  Great for a beginner but once you go your first time you’ll be jonesing to get out there again.
