Katya found in yoga a way of life, a system for self-exploration, providing her with constant support on her path. When she arrived in Vio, she rediscovered her love and devotion for nature, as well as a path on which she can continuously learn and be in tune with herself and nature. In 2009, she got her teachers’ training certificate from the International Sivananda Vedanta Organization. Later, after having spent three years working in yoga centers and ashrams from the same organization in Buenos Aires, Toronto, and Quebec, she took an advanced teacher training course in India (500 RYT).
