KATIE BLAIR – YOGA TEACHER
Describe what you do and also WHY you do it.
I help people understand the possibility of creating change and shifting their reality into the things that they truly desire by doing nothing more than learning how to understand themselves from within. The power of cultivating and being empowered by the spiritual power that lies within each of us is so strong because we have often not been taught how to tap into it, ever.
What is your methodology and style?
I love doing all of the back end work and bringing what I am teaching down to its simplest forms. I love studying in depth different topics, and then creating direct pathways to the problems the common person faces in our modern day society. So I guess what I’m trying to say is I love making this ancient knowledge as much of a powerful tool now as it was then – just in a different way with a little twist and flare so that it can be useful to people who don’t know where to start with it or don’t have the time to study it deep.
When did you know that this is what you wanted to do? How did you discover it?
I have discovered various techniques within this through the last three years I have spent living out of my backpack and traveling all around the world. I knew this was what my purpose was 2 years ago in India when I started studying yoga and realizing how deep and magical this knowledge was. I remember sitting in class daily, just jaw-dropped at the information I was receiving and how I had never been exposed to it before. I knew pretty quickly that I wanted to dedicate my life to studying deeper and deeper and bringing the information to places and people that wouldn’t otherwise necessarily have access to it.
What do you wish other people knew about what you do?
How powerful this stuff is. And how completely beautiful and euphoric it is to be able to understand your mind, body and soul on a level beyond your wildest dreams. This stuff can be hard to teach sometimes because, like me, its stuff that you don’t necessarily know you are seeking. But if nothing else has been working for you….it’s time.
What is the most rewarding part of what you do?
Getting to help people realize their true happiness and contentment. I think our western society has a lot of great aspects, but it can also be very surface level at times as far as pure happiness. We tend to stick within comfort zones that make us feel safe, are taught from a young age that buying or searching externally for things is the best way to stay within that comfort zone, and we all always unconsciously morphing who we truly are in order to stay close to the ones we love and spend our time with. We are conditioned to think that all we need to fulfill our deepest needs and desires lies couldn’t possibly ever already lie within us – and so I love those ‘aha’ moments when people finally understand with tears in their eyes and go “Ohhhh….this is it. This is what I have been searching for all along.”
How could someone’s life benefit from what you offer?
Life completely changes when you start to discover your spiritual self. I’m not going to tell you that it is all easy and rainbows and smiles. When working with this stuff sometimes to get to the good, you have to work through the bad and the painful. And that can be really hard. But I also believe it is a lot easier to guide yourself through a process of releasing so that you can let go and become a better version of yourself without holding onto things that don’t serve you anymore – than it is to keep it bottled up. It’s also really scary sometimes to make big changes, but gaining the confidence to make a small one is only the first domino to many more.
What inspires you?
Mother Earth! This beautiful being that we live on and are a part of and connected to that does nothing but give and give and give to us…she inspires me. I feel most alive and myself when I am immersed in her natural beauty. She reminds me of the something much bigger I am connected to, and she brings me back home to myself every time I start to get lost…which is also why I love exploring her so much!
