MEET FABI PORTO

Born in Brazil, Fabi spent part of her childhood in South Africa & India, and early in life she

knew she would be a therapist in extension of her compassion. Recognized as a life lover, Fabi has always been drawn by the elements of Nature to heal her body and nourish her soul, and has been encouraged to embody movement in different creative expressions and exercises which allowed her to develop great body awareness and understanding. She believes her personal essence resonates lightness integrated with loving kindness and supportive strength. Following her instincts, she has never stopped studying and considers sharing her knowledge to be a true gift and a blessing on its own.

MEET KAT YATES

Kathryn is a well-traveled yoga and meditation teacher since 2017, following her own personal journey into yoga after having had foot surgery in 2015. Having grown up in a relatively conservative community, she has always had an immense curiosity for the world and all its different ways of “being”: driving her ongoing exploration into the ways our mind and body are connected not only to one another but also to our unique environments. As a teacher she is 200 RYT certified in Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin. She is also certified in Thai Massage and has completed 2 Vipassana meditations, and will complete a 75 hour advanced Kula training in September with Anton Brandt and Nikki Vilella in Portugal.

Kat’s goal is simple: she aims to help people be the best versions of themselves that they can possibly be. Her classes are fun, energetic, nourishing and well- rounded.
