Katey’s love for yoga began when she was on sabbatical, living in Shanghai, China. What started as a simple home practise to improve mobility and pain in her hips, became a dedicated ritual as she continued to roll out her mat while travelling through Asia – from Cambodia, Vietnam and Bali, all the way to the Philippines.
After returning to South Africa, she continued to expand my practise, as a way to connect to my mind and body, and find balance in a demanding career in advertising.
She completed my RYS 200 hour teaching training in 2018 (Vinyasa style), led by two of South Africa’s most respected and experienced teachers - Steven Heyman (Yoga Works) and Melanie Castleman (Melanie Castleman Yoga). She has also trained in prenatal yoga and is able to guide expecting moms safely through their practise.
“My teaching style focuses on a balance of strength and stretching. I guide my clients so that they are able to ease their thinking mind with breathing techniques, connect to their body and enjoy exploring the gift of physical movement in a way that challenges and honours their capabilities. More importantly, I aim for my clients to experience a sense of joy, which translates both on and off their mat.”
You can find Katey at Mind Body Connect Studio in Kramerville. She also teaches children’s yoga at Roosevelt Extension Nursery School.
