Katja

FOUNDER & YOUR HOST, YOGA, REIKI

Yoga has been part of my life since mid 90s’, first general classes, and since late 90’s Astanga and Hatha Flow. Yoga gives me great feeling of balance, connection & understanding of myself and sense the higher energies around us.

Having grown up in Finland where unity with nature is part of daily life, my adulthood in London was missing this sense of connection, until yoga came to my life. My busy city living started to feel like it was not fulfilling my existence, even I had interesting career in the City, so one day I just decided to stop and take some time to reflect and see what I really want from my life. First realisation was that I have worked my entire life in time demanding and self-sacrificial positions, some great fun and rewarding, some highly draining, I would not change a day as I learned a lot and grateful of every moment but I was seeking something different, more purposeful being for myself.

Summer 2014 brought me to Ibiza the first time, I decided to explore yoga deeper and qualified with Yoga Alliance to teach, since then I have set up my own boutique and yoga room on the island and year 2017 start to host wellness retreats in our Ibizan home. I am grateful to be able to share my life learning and hold safe space for others to relax, find what ignites their spark. I truly believe that you can do what ever you want as long as you try and dedicate yourself to the matter.

It has been fun and highly challenging journey so far, and I am happy to tell you more about it when we meet.

My teachers along my yoga path that has had greatest influence are Melanie Cooper and Petri Raisanen, both Ashtanga lineage, alongside many others and of course my students, friends and pets who teach me every day.
