Reading's Yoga Community
Katia holds 600 hours training as an Ashtanga and Yin Yoga teacher, which she first completed in 2014 and has been working with Sophie Cleere since then to run Yoga Reading. She also holds qualifications in Advanced Yin with Norman Blair, Safe Adjusting with Norman and Melanie Cooper, and trains annually with a number of teachers to maintain and develop her practice.
In 2019 Katia completed a year long Level 5 Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy with the Oxford School of Sports Massage before having a baby boy in October 2019.
Prior to running Yoga Reading, Katia was Head of Operations for an International Consulting Organisation. She regularly practiced yoga with Sophie alongside running half marathons, doing Crossfit and anything else dynamic that she could find. She now finds balance with the more introspective aspects of Yin yoga and enjoys nothing more than a delicious restorative practice (perhaps because she has a 4 month old at home!). She is in charge of the systems that keep Yoga Reading up and running and loves getting involved with our Community Events.
Katia absolutely loves running Yoga Reading with Sophie and is passionate about making yoga fun and accessible to everyone.
