Katrin Karlsson, RYT
Certified Prana Yoga Teacher
Katrin was born and raised in Malmo, Sweden and moved to the U.S. in 2004. She lived in
New York City for 5 years together with her husband Chris and moved to Raleigh, NC in
January 2009.  She received her B.A. in Psychology at Baruch College, NY in 2007 and
her yoga certificate at the Open Center in NY the same year.

After practicing yoga for 7 years she decided to become an instructor and taught classes
to students at Baruch College, employees at Christiania Spirits Inc., where she also
worked as the human resources director, and private sessions to individual clients. She is
currently teaching at 02 Fitness in Raleigh and Bodyworks for Ladies in Wake Forest.

Yoga has helped her cope with many life-changing events and is excited and determined
to spread the healing practice of yoga to others who are struggling with emotional and
physical challenges. She finds yoga to be incredibly diverse in its multifaceted approach
incorporating postures, breathing, chanting and meditation in a unique way. It is also an
excellent form of exercise for those who are only looking to improve strength and
endurance. She has a passion for holistic treatments and is honored and grateful to be
associated with The Center.    

In her spare time she also enjoys long walks in the beautiful parks and greenways of
North Carolina, biking, golf, traveling and spending time with her friends and family.
She has such a warm and peaceful energy
and she has the ability to motivate and
encourage in a gentle and calming way.

When I first started doing yoga I found it to
be quite intimidating and I rarely went.
Kat consistently reminds me that yoga is
not about being perfect but that it is
about trying your best and feeling good
about your body. Kat is not only a great
yoga instructor but she is a genuine and
kind soul, and a great friend."
