Kat is originally from Estonia, but her gypsy soul has brought her to travel the world. She’s been chasing the small mountain town life and has lived and worked in 5 different countries on 3 different continents. After 6 years of travel, she arrived in Revelstoke in March 2017 and quickly realised that this is the place she wants to call home for the rest of her life.
Kat was first introduced to yoga in 2015 when she joined a local teacher in Austria for her Ashtanga classes. Having always been an active person she was instantly hooked. But it wasn’t until she joined a local yoga studio in Mt Maunganui, New Zealand in February 2016, that she realised that yoga will play a great role in her life. Yoga helped her overcome depression and that was the turning point for her to decide that she needed to share this gift with the rest of the world.
In January 2017 she completed her 200hr teacher training with Sampoorna Yoga in Goa, India. Her training was in Ashtanga and Vinyasa, a very powerful combination. You can see these influences in her classes. Kat’s classes are strong and powerful, yet playful at the same time.
“The more you open your heart in the class, the more you will open it in real life.” Yoga has taught Kat a lot about herself and a holistic way of life and now she’s on a mission to share this with the rest of the world!

Jamie’s journey to becoming an RMT began with yoga and using movement to heal herself. Deeply intrigued by the human anatomy, she pursued multiple yoga teacher training’s and is also a trained pilates instructor. Jamie believes so deeply in guiding others to health through movement that she now facilitates 200hr YTT’s with Yoga Science and is very excited to offer Exercise Therapy in addition to Massage at Alchemy.
In Jamie’s treatments it is her goal to approach the condition holistically, assessing the body as a whole to provide individuals with intentional and accurate treatment. She believes in beginning with the chain of imbalance that contributed to the injury and retraining muscular patterns to heal and increase performance. Jamie employs therapeutic assessment of motion looking for dysfunction and imbalance, then releases restricted muscles and reawakens opposing and weakened ones to create balanced movement patterns. During this process Jamie gives cues and tools to keep things on track in home life, ensuring a lasting result.
Health and wellness is the axis around which Jamie chooses to revolve her life. She believes there to be no better gift than to support someone through their own personal journey and experience of it.

Designations: E-RYT/ YACEP
I began practicing yoga over sixteen years ago, though over the past 7 years, I have developed a strong self-led practice of asana and meditation. Yoga has been a great source of strength in my life and has given me the tools to rise above injury, illness, and emotional trials. Yoga has taught me what spirituality is and to accept myself and others.
I learned to teach yoga in 2013-14 and have certainly not looked back since then. Teaching yoga has helped me connect more deeply to my own practice and inspired me to continue to learn as much as I can. I love to share my evolving knowledge and passion with students.
I have had the opportunity to learn from some amazing teachers and I do my best to pass on their wisdom in my teaching. In 2013 I attended a 200 hour Baptiste Power Yoga Teacher Training with Sherry Zak at Halifax Yoga. In 2015 I did a second teacher training with Manju Pattabhi Jois in traditional Mysore Ashtanga practice. In 2016 I completed levels 1-3 of Critical Alignment Therapy teacher training with Gert van Leeuwen.
My practice and my teaching is constantly evolving. The more people I have the pleasure of sharing this practice with, the more I learn, which keeps fostering greater growth and understanding of teaching and practicing yoga.
With the power yoga and Ashtanga background, you might have guessed that I enjoy the physical challenge of yoga. I appreciate the strong mind-body connection that a difficult practice offers, I find it brings me deeply into the present moment. That being said, after teaching a few years I found that I also yearned for a more therapeutic practice style, both for myself and fellow students. It was for this reason that I trained with Gert VanLeeuwen in Critical Alignment. Both the Ashtanga and CAT trainings gave me a deeper understanding of each pose as a therapeutic element.
All poses are meant to have a physical and energetic benefit, the benefits are greater when the poses are performed properly and in an appropriate sequence.
I love teaching for all skill and experience levels of students, I strive to deliver classes that offer a balance between accessibility and challenge. As I guide practices, I am also more mindful that poses are meant to have a physical and energetic benefit, the benefits are greater when the poses are performed properly and in an appropriate sequence.
Beyond teaching yoga Asana (physical poses) I guide and share some of the other aspects of the practice with students, including meditation, breathing exercises, and philosophy.
When I am not practicing yoga or teaching yoga you can find me wandering aimlessly in nature with my little one or climbing up rocks and other rock-like surfaces.
I look forward to sharing some time and space with you!
