after discovering a strong yang style of yoga in London, and then traveling to India to explore the lighter practice of Sivananda yoga, physics graduate and trained actress Katarina realised what an integral part of her physical and mental wellbeing it had become.
with 500hrs of advanced Teacher Training in Ashtanga, Rocket, Yin & Mandala Vinyasa, Katarina continues to build her advanced teacher training hours as expanding her knowledge to pass on to her students.
Katarina's public teaching schedule consists of a mixture of Rocket yoga and the Mandala model in her Vinyasa classes, working closely with chakra and elemental theories.
