Nick and Katie Clark (Katie Osborn) met in a yoga studio and have been together ever since. Their loving family grew to three when they rescued Bandit, their very own SPOTTED DOG. When they decided it was time to open their own yoga studio, Nick and Katie were inspired by what their amazing dog Bandit teaches them daily…


Their loving family grew to five over the past few years. Katie and Nick have two sons, Owen (6) and Sawyer (4) and two dogs, Bandit and Allie Mae.

Rather than striving to be like the rest, Nick and Katie created Spotted Dog Yoga & SUP to be the FIRST of it’s kind in the Sacramento area. Spotted Dog Yoga is a unique, family focused yoga studio with classes for everyone from expectant moms and toddlers to adults of all ages. Spotted Dog is committed to inspiring a strong sense of community that is visible the moment you walk through the front door. You will find yourself wanting to come back for more!


At Spotted Dog Yoga & SUP, we strive to inspire and build a community of authentic individuals willing to do the work to unlock their greatest potential. Spotted Dog Yoga & SUP exists to make transformation possible. Come as you are, laugh, and be bold, but most importantly


At Spotted Dog Yoga & SUP, we achieve our mission through our core values:

GRATITUDE – Be grateful for who you are and what you have every day.

FAITH – Yoga teaches us to trust the process. Have faith and enjoy the journey.

INTEGRITY – Honor yourself by standing for what you believe in, even against criticism.

FAMILY – Do what you love with the people you love. Your family will grow and your community will appear.
