Let’s get to know each other
Meet Katya, the energetic force behind PRAKTIKA!
Katya’s love for functional movement, exercise and nutrition started back in her teenage years. Picture her trying out all sorts of yoga styles – from the zen Hatha to the energetic flow of Vinyasa, the strength-building challenges of Ashtanga, and the serene practices of Shivananda. Not to forget, she’s also a Pilates enthusiast!
In 2019, she took her first step on the teacher’s path. Now, she proudly holds the titles of Certified Yoga Alliance teacher and Pilates Mat instructor (Corpus Studios™).
Since 2023, Katya added another feather to her cap – she’s a Certified Health Coach and a proud member of the Ukrainian Association of Health Coaches.
Embracing a holistic approach to health, Katya loves to sprinkle a bit of playfulness into her coaching and teaching style.
She’s all about challenging her clients with a fun-loving twist, helping them find balance in nutrition, and guiding them to discover awareness through movement that strengthens the body and calms the mind.
Not taking oneself too seriously, having fun, and being curious – these qualities are at the core of Katya’s approach to life,
an approach that she also brings to her profession.
Over few years PRAKTIKA also naturally formed a little community. Like a cozy gathering that keeps getting bigger, it becomes a source of inspiration and good vibes. Whether you’re a pro wellness enthusiast or just starting your journey towards a healthier life, there’s a spot for you!
Life’s an adventure, and so is the wellness journey with PRAKTIKA!
PRAKTIKA method is based on the Classical Pilates Mat Series and Vinyasa Yoga.
A solid and well balanced physical training develops flexibility, mobility, strength and balance. While a focus on breathing lends itself to stabilizing the nervous system.
The variations shown for each movement enable everyone to either stay within their comfort zone, or push for more of a challenge. This means that both complete beginners and those with a firm experience will enjoy the benefits.
The classes are given in a small group 4-12 people, which allows a personal approach to every participant.
Regular practice will make you feel energized strong and flexible, allowing to flow freely through daily life. A delicious cocktail of Pilates and Yoga to boost you in every way.

What is Well-being
This is definitely a complex question...
A notion of being a healthy person is based on FIVE staples: Nutrition, Movement, Sleep, Stress Management and Social Connections. Healthy life is also an exciting journey, not a goal or a static point.
During the coaching process, we establish good eating habits, improve the quality of sleep, balance mental health and integrate more movement to softly transition to a new healthy lifestyle.
