In 2008, while living in the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, Katy stumbled upon a local yoga class hoping to ‘chill out’. It was only twenty minutes into class that she realised not all yoga was ‘chilled’, that wearing skinny jeans wasn’t the best idea and… that despite all this, there was something that made her want to go back again – an inexplicable connection and intrigue into what yoga was all about.
Ditching her Levis for lululemon, she soon became a dedicated student at Pure Yogawhere the seed of yoga was firmly planted in her life. Fast forward to present day and Katy’s not only lucky enough to teach at studios across London but to have helped open and manage Union Station Yoga.
Katy is grateful to have studied with some incredible teachers and feels particularly blessed to have found her teacher Bridget Woods-Kramer, whose teaching, based on the Anusara method, has inspired her practice and classes to be playful and dynamic, while being mindful of our alignment in each asana. In Katy’s classes, students are encouraged to celebrate their limitations as much as their successes, and she’ll often work in groups or pairs to explore different poses.
