HATHA TANTRA PRANAYAMA
My name is Katharina and I teach Yoga as a practice of embodied living. I consider myself a lifetime student, devoted to the teachings of non-dual tantra (Shiva-Shakti) into everyday practice. Grounded in non-dual tantric philosophy, I teach yoga (hatha, vinyasa, yin), meditation, pranayama, classical tantra, bhakti yoga, and mantra. I am committed to teaching and and training practitioners to the true integrity of yoga – as a practice of awakening our inner, embodied awareness, and knowing all dimensions of Self inhabiting the body.
I hold an advanced 500-E-RYT in Hatha with over 3000+ hours spread across teaching, facilitating trainings, and retreats across Asia. For many years I practiced in Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Hatha Yoga which has greatly influenced aspects of my physical teachings. Devoted to tantra, I have been fortunate to have received transmission of my most profound teachings from my teacher Christopher Wallis, Kashmir Shaivism Tantric scholar-practitioner, and founder of Tantrika Institute. My style of teaching today intersects asana, movement, pranayama, meditation, mantra, visualisation, and philosophy as tools to understand and explore the inner landscape of our embodied consciousness in the body.
I thank my main teacher Christopher Wallis (non-dual Tantra and meditation) for supporting me on my personal journey of waking up to what is truly there; waking up beyond the identifications and the self-constructed self. And deep appreciation for my past teachers and inspirations that have helped pave the way: Samrat Dasgupta (Hatha Yoga) and Clayton Horton (Ashtanga Yoga), James Mallinson (Hatha Yoga Philosophy), Tara Judelle (Embodied Flow)

“Kat, my heart is full of gratitude for you. You have been my gateway to learning the truest and deepest meaning of yoga. Nothing has changed, and yet everything has changed since I completed two of your silent retreats in the summer of 2020, and your Science of Prana Vayus immersion programme. I’m so impressed by your knowledge of yogic history and philosophy; your commitment to your own growth as a teacher; and your empathetic, attentive, and grounded teaching style. I look forward to staying engaged in your beautiful community. Infinite possibilities await…”

“Katharina teaches with calm, clarity, maturity and insight. Through spoken instructions and visualizations she opens up for a deeper understanding of asana, pranayama and meditation. Practicing with Katharina I have been given the tools needed to build the foundations of a strong, personal practice.”
– Emma Fordham
“I’ve always enjoyed Kat’s classes for the balance between active movement for the body and connecting with oneself. It’s clear that she is guided in her teaching through her own spiritual practices which comes across in her genuine commitment and encouragement to helping her students find balance in their own yoga practice. Kat has definitely played a big role as a teacher in strengthening my own yoga journey and her classes and presence is truly a joy to have around!”
– Cherrie Chung
“I first began classes with Katharina on improve my inversions – she was of course brilliant at it, and quickly got me on my first headstand on my first day. However, what truly impressed me was her work in Tantric Hatha classes and breath work classes – apart from leading us into the correct alignment for yoga asanas, she could also hold the space in a way that allowed for profound introspection.
If you ever get to go to a retreat organised by Katharina, grab that chance, they are not to be missed. I was lucky enough to join her in one that she organised on Lantau Island in Hong Kong. Kat has a talent for seeking out hidden, healing gems where you can find serenity, calm and rest in the middle of chaos. The retreat I went to clarified my intentions and changed the course of my life – I hope you get to experience the same.”
“Katharina is an amazing teacher! She is rigorous but always generous and supportive. Her teaching balances precision with an openness towards exploration. I always came out of her classes feeling stronger, clearer and more aware of what my body could do and what it needed.”
