Katie Standring

Studio owner Katie has been teaching Bikram Yoga since 2005, the longest serving teacher at the studio.
In a previous life Katie spend 20 years working as a Sales and Marketing professional in London.
When she first came to Bikram Yoga the hardest challenge was to simply lay still! Despite feeling uncomfortable both physically and mentally during her first few classes something kept her going back for more. She soon started to feel more connected with her true self and her life purpose.  Losing weight and becoming more flexible was a welcomed extra! After just one year of regular bikram practice she knew she wanted to teach!

Katie has been fortunate enough to have taught in some of the biggest studios in London, California and Sydney.

In 2007 Katie met Martin. Together they shared a dream to create a Bikram Yoga Studio which was full of love and to inspire people to improve their health and happiness. In 2012 Bikram Yoga Northern Beaches was opened. 

Katie loves 'holding space' for deep healing and transformation. In addition to teaching Bikram yoga, managing the studio  (with Martin) Katie teaches Yin Yoga and runs Yoga Retreats in Bali.
