Katie Wise E-RYT, RPYT, CD (certified doula)
From a young age, Katie had a passion for and trust in the experience of birth, inherited from her father who caught over 300 babies, including Katie! At thirteen, she had the honor of witnessing a natural childbirth at Boulder Community Hospital, and was in awe. Katie believes that women's bodies have the wisdom to give birth, and her purpose in supporting and educating pregnant women is to uncover and foster that instinct and faith.
Katie's experience attending births is at the heart of her work. Whether teaching yoga, or educating parents in childbirth, she draws extensively on her experiences assisting women through their pregnancy and labor. She educates couples with her innovative and effective Childbirth method, "Inspired Birth," which combines the best of Bradley, Birthing From Within, and Hypnobirthing, with humor and a deep caring for each family. She believes that birth itself is a divine teacher, showing women their strength, and the beauty of surrender. Katie has served at over 180 births, and her doula work was recently featured on NPR. She currently serves families in the Boulder area through her doula practice, The Boulder Doula Circle, and mentors and trains new doulas.
Katie founded Yo Mama Yoga and Family Center in downtown Santa Monica, in 2006. Prior to that she ran Yoga Baby in Venice, and created Pre- and Post-natal Yoga programs at five other Los Angeles studios. Katie has trained with Gurmukh, Saul David Raye, Chuck Miller, and many others, both in America and in India. Katie and her studio have been featured in Muscle and Fitness Hers, Whole Life times, Yogi Times, LA Yoga Magazine, The Santa Monica Daily Press, and the Los Angeles Daily News, and NPR. Her writing has been published in Yogi Times, and Special Delivery. This year, Yo Mama Boulder has been featured in the Daily Camera and Colorado Women's Magazine! Katie also writes a blog, and has guest blogged for Mother's Advocate and Lamaze!
