Retreat with me to the Greek Island of Amorgos… Allow the soothing blue sea to wash away your mask and immerse yourself in nature, yoga, and your soul. Begin each day with an uplifting yoga practice in the outdoor shala overlooking the Aegean Sea. After a nourishing breakfast, explore the sandy beaches below or hike around the coastline to discover ancient churches and ruins. Unwind in the afternoon at the spa or pool, and nourish yourself in the evenings with a restorative yoga practice. Let’s not forget the food! EAT, savor and treat your body to locally-sourced Greek food (even Amorgian olive oil!) and organic produce straight from the garden. Begin your self love from the INSIDE out. And perhaps the best part of all, establish lasting bonds and create friendships with yogis from all over the world. What could be better?

Kat is a passionate yogi + wellness blogger with a thirst for adventure and seeking “the good stuff” in life. After leaving a demanding corporate marketing job to pursue teaching full time, she found a completely new outlook on life and understands the stress and sensory-overload her students face on a daily basis all too well.
Kat quickly had her fill of big-city yoga and escaped into the mountains in a convertible with her husband so they could spend their free time hiking, pursuing wild backcountry sports and drinking only the good beer. She teaches public classes in Breckenridge, CO and leads workshops and retreats around the world.
Kat will be assisted on this retreat by her husband, Nick Larsen. Nick has been teaching yoga for over six years and specializes in cYoga, a strength based style of hatha with an emphasis on hands-on-adjustments. cYoga was created by international yogi Carmen Aguilar (@cyogalab), whom Nick has studied with from day one.
Kat’s goal is to create a safe and inviting space for people to let go and reconnect to their authentic selves. Her classes offer a unique style of playfulness, exploration and motivation that inspire her students to take their practice to the next level – both on and off the mat.
“Kat is amazing, I hope to go on future retreats with her! She got to know everyone and helped everyone reach new yoga goals!”
“I enjoyed how Kat set the sacred place for our entire experience. I really enjoyed how she made us all feel very welcome and included and encouraged.”
“I really liked the variety of classes that Kat taught. I liked the meditation aspects and the workshop we did as well.”
“Kat is awesome and I would definitely attend another retreat hosted by her. She’s very good at responding to the groups wants and needs for each class and is easy to communicate with regarding style of yoga desired each day.”
“I love Kat, she is amazing. Her ability to connect and lead was wonderful!!!”
“Kat is very good with her explanation on anatomy and Nick is very good at adapting to the people in the classes needs.”
“Good energy was created through our entire group…I think Kat and Nick had a lot to do with that.”
