Katarina [she/her] has been practicing yoga for roughly half her life and teaching for about a third of it.
In class, workshops, trainings and on retreat, her students are encouraged to explore their capacity for challenge, be curious, learn new movements, breathe deeply, be still and nurture their relationship with their wise inner-Self. All of this is taught in an effort to build a sense of personal agency (choice) as to how students relate to their body, mind, emotions and Spirit.
Katarina’s teachings centre around two major themes: radical self-acceptance and self-compassion. She considers it her mission to role model these qualities by being transparent about her mental health challenges.
