Pranayama workshop with Yogiraj Katrina Repka October 14th, 2021, Gothenburg at Olismo Yoga

About Katrina

I have been studying yoga since 1990 and teaching since 2001. My early training was in Ashtanga yoga, but I have been primarily influenced by the unique blend of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda—ISHTA Yoga—that is the creation of Yogiraj Alan Finger, with whom I study and work closely. In 2009, Alan conferred on me the title of Yogiraj. This means that I maintain the highest standard of yoga knowledge and teaching in the ISHTA yoga lineage, and it is a very great honour.


I teach for a wide range of needs and abilities. My private clients have included bankers, actors, athletes, pre- and post- natal women, mummies and babies, and the chronically ill. I have taught group classes from Beginner to Advanced.

Having moved to New York City from my native Canada, from 2001-2005 I taught private individuals, group classes, and teacher trainings at Be Yoga/Yoga Works. In the spring of 2006 I moved to London, where I continue to teach group and private classes in Notting Hill. These days my main focus is teacher training and mentoring teachers, and running advanced ISHTA retreats and workshops both in London and internationally.

My hope and aim in teaching yoga is to facilitate personal transformation, inside and out. Correct alignment through asana is the key to creating harmony and balance in the body, whilst pranayama and meditation are essential for inner peace and connection to spirit. Blending the ancient and contemporary sciences of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda, ISHTA teaching caters to the individual student’s needs with intelligence and authenticity.

I have a masters degree in Communications and have written articles for Yoga Magazine UK, as well as a weekly yoga column in Metro newspapers worldwide. I have also been featured in Telegraph, The New York Times, Elle, Guardian, Tatler, BBC, Grove, Yoga Journal, Time Out London, and Vogue.

Very welcome!

Registration is now open. 

Pranayama is the fascinating science of how we can learn to use the animating life force within us to change the way we think and feel. In this workshop we will look at the fundamentals of how we breathe, and how we can change the patterning of the breath to affect our absorption of life force. 


10:30 – 11:30 a.m.

Lecture: Pranayama 

In this lecture Katrina will explore the intricacies of the anatomy of the breath, and how we can truly come to understand the essence of the word pranayama, which is composed of two meanings: prana + yama (to control), and prana + ayama (to stretch and extend). We will look at how to channel prana through the subtle body with the use of bandhas, different cycles of the breath, and breath ratios. Katrina will show how pranayama can make profound changes to one’s consciousness, energy, and state of mind, and how the science of pranayama is an integral practice to bring you the state of yoga.
