Kateryna joined the Cary Flow community as one of its first students in 2013. She was looking for a place to connect with the local yogis while building a new life in Cary, after having moved with her husband to North Carolina from New York. This community has inspired her to make a long-time dream come true by completing a yoga teacher training. In May 2014, she completed a 200-hour Yoga Alliance-certified teacher training at Franklin Street Yoga studio in Chapel Hill, NC. Even though the focus of her training was on Power Vinyasa, she has always found opportunities to deepen her knowledge by attending special yoga workshops and seminars, where she pursued the study of breathing techniques (pranayama), meditation, as well as other styles of modern yoga practice.
When teaching a yoga class, Kateryna tries to help her students get the most benefits from their practice by focusing not only on the exercise element, known as asana, but also by incorporating pranayama and meditation. She is excited to share the gift of yoga and its benefits with anyone who is interested in building strength, flexibility, and balance.
Outside of the Cary Flow studio, Kateryna’s passions include traveling, hiking, learning foreign languages, and exploring the local food scene.
