"Katia is a terrific yoga teacher and I really enjoyed her class (in fact, I signed up for another one immediately!). I liked that she had asked me in advance what I wanted to accomplish, and what issues I had (in my case, a bad lower back) and designed a class that was perfect for me. That’s a real luxury. I’ve been doing yoga for years, but learned new things from Katia that helped my lower back."

– Laurel from New York, USA

"The yoga experience with Katia was like no other. Katia took the time to explain the background of yoga as a practice, each movement and the importance. I’ve participated in many yoga classes over the years, however none as beneficial and joyful as Katia's. Can’t wait to go again!"

– Lizle from from Melbourne, Australia

"I am not advanced yoga practitioner, I am rather slowly getting back to practice and it was exactly what I needed. Katya’s pace was just perfect for my resilient body. Clear, professional instructions, personal attention to my needs and great vibes! Thank you Katia!"

"Katia knows her stuff. I have been doing yoga on and off for over 30 years but hate to practice alone. She asked about my needs ahead of time and it was clear that as she was working with me. She adjusted to my level. She was thoughtful, attentive, and created just the right atmosphere. I would take another class with her any time."

When I see in my students how the yoga transforms their life in so many positive ways it fires up my passion to help more people on their journey to wellness. I specialise in creating unique personalised private and small group yoga classes to suit individual health and lifestyle needs.

I studied yoga full time on an authentic residential teacher training course in an ashram based in Rishikesh India, known as the yoga capital of the world. Learning the essence of yoga and the mind-body-breath connection, anatomy and safe alignment. My goal is give students the tools and techniques to access their own unique body’s needs, center themselves and discover the benefits of yoga practice to assist their modern lifestyles.
