Meet the Instructors

Hi there! We're Cat and João, two Portuguese Yogi passionate about teaching Yoga Sámkhya. 

Yoga Sámkhya is one of the most comprehensive methods of human development, combining over 14 technical disciplines in a single class, helping you discover and bring out the best version of yourself. After every class, you'll feel calmer, refreshed and re-energised, thanks to the way the class is arranged and taught. 

Don't take our word for it! Join us for one of our online classes



Hello! My name is Cat, short for Catarina, and I am a certified Yoga teacher based in London, UK. I've started practising Yoga in 2014, over seven years ago, after struggling to cope with University exams and anxiety. Yoga truly changed my life by giving me tools and techniques I can use to manage stress and improve my mental wellbeing. 

After my brilliant first-hand experience, I decided I wanted to share this knowledge and empower people to take control of their mental health and improve their wellbeing - so I became a Yoga teacher.

Come join my classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays online.

See you there!


Hi there! My name is João and I am a certified Yoga instructor based in the West Midlands. I started my practice over a decade ago, in the middle of an incredibly stressful exam season during my veterinary medicine university training. Yoga touched me in such a profound way that I was hooked from day one.


In Yoga I found a practice that not only explained some of Nature's most profound phenomena with incredible detail – it also showed me a clear path to self-study and self-development. It didn’t take long until I started my yoga teacher training journey, and making a positive impact in the lives of all that seek me has become a life goal for the past 7 years.

Join me on Tuesdays and Saturdays online.

See you then!
