Few words of wisdom from my clients
Her classes are varied and tailored according to the level of ability of the class.
I first started to attend Katja’s yoga classes eight years ago.
She is incredibly knowledgable and has seen me through the birth of my two children.
Katja also does the best massage. She has great technique and a calm, positive manner.
Katja has also offered me, and many other people, lots of practical advice in Ayurvedic workshops, antenatal and postnatal yoga. She is incredibly knowledgable and has seen me through the birth of my two children. Little did I know when I started antenatal yoga 8 years ago that I would get so much more out of it than some stretching and flexibility!
I benefited greatly from attending her pregnancy yoga, and was lucky enough to also bring my girls’ along to her post-natal classes.
Also, the extended yoga sessions, held on weekends which Katja runs occasionally I have really enjoyed. In particular the meditation course that was offered last autumn was very good. Others include the yearly Sanklap yoga workshop.
Katja’s yoga is well known in the Ickenham community, as she also teaches at the local school which my children attend, we are very lucky to have a great yoga teacher on our door step !
