Katy has always been a water baby and, according to her mother, swam out when she was born.
Having spent her early childhood swimming and doing what she found out in later life were yoga poses, she trained as a swimming teacher after giving up competitive swimming in her late teens.
After diverting her attention from teaching for several years she came back to swimming 20 years ago and began teaching again. Following the birth of her son she started yoga classes and quickly began adapting yoga poses and breathing into her lessons when teaching nervous adults. Having had some success in doing this she started on her journey to find a form of aquatic therapy suitable for all levels of ability in the water.
A chance Internet search and conversation with Francoise Freedman this became a reality when she qualified as an Aqua Yoga Instructor. Katy has since qualified as a yoga teacher and is passionate about the benefits of yoga in both in and out of the water.
