Leo is a multi-discipline instructor specializing in balance and core stability. His journey into movement began with skating, traversed through balance board and slacklining, and has ultimately landed him on the yoga mat. He’s convinced that movement lies at the heart of everything we do, and credits yoga with providing the only element that was missing, flexibility. Leaving male ego and athletic ability at the door, yoga taught him that cardiovascular activity did not necessarily equate to flexibility, nor did it give him the space to explore his own wellbeing.

Skoti teaches animal flow, breathwork, and meditation. He strongly feels as humans people have lost their way from being an animal, and when they do that they start creating behavioral patterns so subconsciously that they might not even relate to the fact that it might not be serving them and they are up for question. If people can nurture this side of the animal, they open the door to endless possibilities. Just remember, when a wild animal gets backed into a corner and suppressed, just think about the many ways it will try to escape and protect itself.
As a physics graduate and trained actress, making the transition to full-time yoga teacher wasn't the obvious choice. However, it was after discovering a strong Yang style of yoga in London, and then traveling to India to explore the lighter practice of Sivananda yoga that Katarina realized what an integral part of her physical and mental wellbeing it had become. She then returned to India a year later to complete her 200-hour yoga teacher training in Ashtanga and Ashtanga Vinyasa (Rocket) with The Yoga People, who themselves were taught by Larry Schultz the pioneer of Rocket yoga.
Be less serious, more curious. David’s joyous teachings reflect his wonderfully non-linear journey as an international movement artist whose fascination guided him through a degree in architecture, professional dance training, and yoga. David honours these influences in his classes exploring asana beneath their blueprints of alignment and beyond the confines of the mat to move from a place of freedom and integrity. Known for his creative indulgence towards exploring every corner of the body and mind, he invites you to appreciate the poetics of the in-between to inspire grace and sensitivity.
