Katharina was born and brought up in Russia. As a child she was always passionate about painting and fine arts. After completing a bachelor degree in Oriental Studies and Chinese Language she was supposed to become a communication expert and mediator in Sino-Russian economic and political relationships.
However, having a strong interest in Eastern philosophies she joined the spiritual path of self-discovery, craving for the answers to the questions about spiritual foundations of life. That made her travel and live in Asia for more than 10 years, out of which 5 she spent in Shanghai. Here she started a yoga teaching career.
In 2012, after coming to India for the first time Katharina left China to dedicate herself completely to a serious yogic education – in ashrams, yoga retreats and meditation camps.
Having Ashtanga Vinyasa as a primary style of her practice, Katharina also teaches Hatha Yoga, Iyengar Yoga and Yin Yoga, alternating that with Yoga Anatomy, Adjustments & Alignment, Vedic Philosophy, Kriyas, Yoga Nidra, Pranayama and Meditation.
