Katia’s Yoga journey began over 10 years ago while working in design for some of the top advertising & marketing agencies in Australia & New Zealand on brands like Mercedes, Hugo Boss, Versace & Peroni. Katia’s daily yoga practice allowed her to stay calm, collected & healthy in a fast-passed & stressful working environment. She discovered that even a short regular yoga practice was as good as having a massage. She decided to pursue her passion for wellness & yoga, helping other people to discover the full benefits that a regular yoga practice can make for the mind & body.
Studying Vinyasa Yoga full-time on a teacher training course in Rishikesh, India, allowed her to really start sharing her passion. Rishikesh is often referred to as the World Capital of Yoga & rests in the foothills of the Himalaya on the sacred Ganges river. Learning the essence of yoga practice such as mind-body-breath connection, yoga philosophy, anatomy & safe alignment while living and learning at the yogic ashram was an invaluable experience that translated into her teaching style.
Having a strong interest in traditional eastern beauty treatments, formulating natural beauty care and Ayurveda (one of the world’s oldest holistic health systems) Katia also studied Ayurvedic massage at the Auaskama Ayurveda Institute in India. Katia is also known for her passion for living a wholistic lifestyle & healthy vegetarian cooking. She continuously develops her skills through numerous courses.
