Katy Willis earned degrees in Nursing and Music from BYU-Idaho before starting her family. She currently lives in Northern Utah with her four energetic children. Betrayal trauma and relationship trauma have been part of her personal journey. The challenges and heaviness of trying to navigate these painful life experiences, coupled with her background in Nursing, eventually opened up a beautiful and empowering world of healing.

Katy not only spent years in private and group talk therapy and coaching as well as working the steps and attending 12-step meetings, but she also discovered ways to support her brain, body, and nervous system in the after of trauma. EMDR, QNRT, neurofeedback, and yoga are all part of her recovery journey. After years of unrolling her own yoga mat, she knew it was something she needed to begin sharing with others. Katy has now completed over 1200 hours of Yoga Teacher Training certifications and has over 500 hours experience teaching yoga.

She will tentatively complete her Yoga Teacher Trainer certificate spring 2024 with plans to begin training the next generation of yoga teachers. Some of her favorite specialties to share are trauma sensitive Yoga and Kundalini Yoga & Meditation. She is also a life coach and is nearly graduated from an advanced coaching training program through BEabove leadership. It’s based on neuroscience and somatic movement. She looks forward to supporting women in the aftermath of relationship trauma soon. You can find her on FB and IG @Gracefilled Pathways.
