My name is Katie Cooper and I'm the yogi behind Rising Sun Yogi. I have two dogs and my husband is a pilot in the Marine Corps. I first began my yogic journey around the beginning of 2016 in Pensacola, Florida. I found myself in an aerial yoga class being taught by one of my (now) very best friends. Then, she talked me into a yoga class on the mat and not in the sky. Before long I found myself in the studio almost daily. This is when I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training at URU Yoga and Beyond in Pensacola. We moved three more times in the next year and a half from Texas to North Carolina then to Okinawa, Japan where I currently live. I did not teach the first year that I lived in Japan and I felt a huge void in my life. That very best friend from my first yoga class ever and I decided to go to India to complete our 300 hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh at Samadhi Yoga Ashram in February 2020. That month in India changed my life. I am more ready than ever to share my teachings, offerings, voice, love, and light with the world. Let's make magic together!              Namasté
