La zentra founder and yoga teacher 

Hi my name is Katia & I’ve been practicing yoga for over 10 years. I studied yoga full time on an authentic residential teacher training course in Rishikesh India, also known as the yoga capital of the world. Learning the essence of yoga & the mind-body-breath connection, anatomy and safe alignment, my goal now is helping people discover the benefits of yoga. I’m Yoga Alliance USA accredited Teacher.

Having a strong interest in traditional eastern beauty treatments and Ayurveda I studied Ayurvedic massage at the Auaskama Ayurveda Institute in India (one of the world’s oldest holistic health systems). My knowledge of formulating natural beauty care comes from traditional and modern approaches and the wisdom of Ayurvedic doctors whom I’ve learnt from. I’m also known for my passion for living a wholistic lifestyle & healthy vegetarian cooking. I continuously develop my skills through numerous courses which help enable me to continue to help others.

Qualified & Affliated with Yoga Alliance USA

what students say

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 wanted to sweat, and I got to sweat! I would take another class with her any time.

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 Katya
