Katie founded Studio 202 to bring inspiration to the community through movement, meditation, breathwork & art. Katie was introduced to meditation and breath as a child by her mother, and found yoga books to browse through at her Gran’s. Having these simple tools to find peace where ever we are and to connect our intuition has made an impact on her life. As such, she is passionate about sharing these tools we all have access to, and inspiring the inner-child in each of us. When Katie was 18 she was inspired to create a space for families to connect in healing, movement, arts, and open-spirituality. She returned to her business plan periodically over the next 14 years with refinements, particularly after she began teaching yoga since 2012. Katie is trained in Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Prenatal Kundalini , Kids Yoga, Braindance, and Craniosacral + Somatoemotional Therapy. Her classes are based on having fun with movement, while connecting to the breath to nourish the mind, body, and soul.
Katie is passionate about empowering others of all ages with simple tools, in order that we may live in greater peace and joy! Katie has since Co-Founded EMPOWER mindful movement for youth with Alana. She has also Co-Founded Theory Leadership + Wellness with Alex to share Corporate Retreats.

Donna attended her first Kundalini class in 2011 and was instantly hooked, as she felt energized and uplifted! Her curiosity about this ‘technology’ led her to complete her teacher training that year. Donna offers the healing power of the symphonic gong as an adjunct to her Kundalini classes for a deeper release and powerful meditation, so you too can feel this uplifting sensation! Her classes are gentle in nature – they are a great place to begin your Kundalini journey to fully embody the benefits of this style of yoga.

A daily practice that went well beyond the asanas into pranayama, meditation and more. She creates a warm, welcoming and light hearted space, that is safe for people to gather and explore thier own body, breath and mind. Her unique fusion of therapeutic restorative makes it’s way into all of her classes, whether it be Restorative, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Baby + Me Yoga, or Yoga for Youth.

Milica was trained in classical ballet at The National Ballet School in Novi Sad, Serbia, Europe. Continuing education throughout Europe inspired Milica to incorporate different dance genres into her own style, slowly diverging from classical ballet. After teaching students of all ages from toddlers to seniors, recreational groups and competitive teams, Milica found her true love – teaching women to dance with attention to health benefits. Thanks to Milica’s great passion for achieving mental, physical and emotional health through the movement and awareness, Womb Motion was found. The unique fusion of belly dance, ballet and flow yoga, suitable for all ages and reproductive stages, brings joy, health and peace to women in Europe and now in Vancouver. She also offers Zumbini for children 0-4 years.
