As a teacher, her hope and aim in teaching yoga is to transform her students, inside and out. Correct alignment through asana (yoga postures) is the key to creating harmony and balance in the body; pranayama (breathing) and meditation are the keys to inner peace and tranquility of the mind and spirit. Together Katrina and her students explore the inner and outer worlds of the self in our search for the truth.
Katrina has one daughter and lives and works in West London.
