  Some Comments From Students

"Katya’s instructions and explanations, anatomical knowledge and application of exercises to various body types are excellent. She really taught me to look at a client as an individual and really think of the reasons (the “Why”) for each exercise as applied to an individual."
Karlien Hauman (Physiotherapist)

"I have received really good feedback from clients using Katya’s methods and cues etc. Her approach involves observing postural patterns with the intention of correcting the imbalances through the selected exercises"
Sam O’Connor (Biokineticist)

"Katya demands the highest standard by encouraging debate, discussion, and stimulates the thirst for knowledge by always providing new direction for self-study and self-development."
Ali Williams (Personal trainer)
