For twelve years I trained as competitive acrobat and dancer. Handstands, back-bending, you name it, I could do it all. Yet, there was something missing – the practice never felt ‘whole’ to me. I knew that beyond the physical practice there was something deeper for me to explore. A spiritual fulfilment to be found.
Today, my mission as a yoga teacher is simple: to teach yoga the way it was intended to be taught – A Spiritual Science.
My name is Katharina Bleinis and I am an E-RYT 500 yoga teacher with over 3000+ hours spread across teaching, facilitating workshops, and retreats across Asia. Devoted to the lineage of traditional Hatha Yoga, I specialises my teaching beyond the physical practice of asana, integrating greater techniques of pranayama, meditation, devotion, and tantric philosophy to evolve my students beyond the mat.
Gratitude to my teachers and mentors that have guided through out this journey:
Inspired by my very first teacher Samrat Dasgupta, a direct disciple of Swami Satyananda of Bihar School of Yoga, Clayton Horton, a level 3 certified Ashtangi by Sharath Jois, and Christopher Wallis, founder of Tantrik Institute, I continue to dedicate myself to the practice of traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga trough the lens of tantric philosophy.
