At ESO, we believe in the power of connection and are inspired by our community. We specialize in private and semi-private services, intimate group classes, workshops, and retreats. Together as a collective we are able to help clients achieve their goals, not only through offering a variety of services, but by collaborating together as team to best support the needs of each individual client.
Our passion lies in teaching and education and stems from a love of the whole human: body, mind, and spirit. We see the beauty and the connection of these three elements, how intricate our anatomy is, how our mind can affect our progress, and the energy of our spirit within everything we choose to do for ourselves. We work to share that beauty and intricacy with our clients.
Through precision instruction, a strong understanding of the human body, and the connection to the mind and spirit, we are able to offer our clients an approach that relieves their stress, pain, and discomfort, while empowering them to live more confidently and joyfully in their bodies and lives.
Above all, we respect and understand that healing takes time and patience. Unfortunately, there is no “quick fix” to regaining strength, health, and overall wellness, but there is a path and journey that is available to ALL! Our team is here to support you along the way, however long that may be, because we know there is no rushing to the healing process. We believe in change over time, compassion, and commitment and are dedicated to supporting clients through their process.

KatieBody Work, Yoga Instructor
Katie Fitzpatrick is a human movement and fitness enthusiast and has been her entire life. It started at a young age as a fascination with gymnastics. Even at the age of 5 she loved watching the shear perfection of human movement in action. In fact, she was a gymnastics coach throughout college. After undergrad, she was a personal trainer and massage therapist for a few years and then eventually made her way to physical therapy school where she earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of the Pacific in 2006. She worked as an outpatient manual and sports therapist for over 13 years gathering over 25,000 hours of hands on experience helping the human body recover from injury. She even taught human anatomy and kinesiology at the collegiate level for 3 years. It was during those years of experience that she realized the “person” inside the injured body was sometimes the obstacle to a successful recovery. In addition to teaching yoga, Katie will be doing hands on bodywork and movement analysis at the studio. She is also available for home sessions for anyone interested in that option. She welcomes you with open arms as you embark on this wellness journey and she hopes to get an opportunity to meet you soon!
