Katy Szarko

Katy Szarko

Katy’s yoga journey started in 2002 as an apprehensive beginner attending a class with a friend. It wasn’t long before she experienced the benefits of practise first hand. She noticed her overall physical and mental wellbeing improve - improved balance, her migraines became less frequent, her Raynaud’s disappeared completely and she could (nearly) touch her toes!

She wanted to learn more about this practice that had the power to transform, and so started a Foundation course with the three year training course with British Wheel of Yoga and hasn’t looked back since. She trained as a children's yoga teacher at Calm for Kids with Christiane Kerr in 2012 and completed her Aerial Yoga training with Chakra Aerial Yoga in 2015.

Josie began her teaching journey in India in 2018 where she gained her 200hrs in Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow. She has since gone on to complete her 60hrs Yin TTC.
Josie enjoys teaching dynamic and creative classes, but always with time to delve into stillness and find a deeper sense of calm. Her classes hold space for purposeful movement to challenge the mind and body; breath work and meditation to connect with the mind; and are interwoven with traditional yogic philosophy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. IS THIS CLASS FOR ME?

Yoga is suitable for everyone and for every body type. It will suit those who prefer a more gentle challenge to stretch and tone the body, while releasing stress and tension. Classes typically start with gently warming up the body, a set of asanas (postures) which can be tailored to varying challenging levels to strengthen and stretch muscles. And finally finishing with a relaxation to bring ease and calm to body and mind with a connection back to yourself.

Q. WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Bring a water bottle and your own mat if you prefer, or you can hire a studio mat for £1.

Q. WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?

Please arrive 15 minutes before class so you have time to get ready and allow a prompt start.

Q. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Cotton clothing is more suitable then stretchy synthetic fabrics, but wear what you feel most comfortable in that will allow your body to move and stretch freely. There are changing cubicles at the studio for before and after class.

Q. WHEN SHOULD I EAT?

Try not to eat a heavy meal at least two hours before class, but a light snack is fine if you need.
