Hosted at Virtual

part of a series on Promise

About the speaker

The greatest promise of all

Tackling the theme of Promise, Katy will share the winding journey that led to her starting her dream businesses, and how she has coped during the pandemic being self employed and with a newborn baby. Katy will also share some self care practices we can all adopt to help us manage this challenging time.

Katy started her career in financial marketing in London. Uninspired by corporate London life, she decided to move to Sydney to see if living in the sunshine would bring her more joy and fulfilment. Although living in Sydney were some of the happiest times of her life, she was still working in corporate marketing and she couldn’t escape the recurring thought that there must be more to life than the conventional 9-5pm slog. So after nearly 5 years in Sydney, she left on another adventure.

She lived in a camper van in an off-grid community in Portugal for 8 months and then spent 2 months in India training to become a yoga teacher. These experiences taught her resilience, how to muster the courage to step out of her comfort zone and how important it is to follow your heart.

When she moved to Edinburgh just over 3 years ago, she realised the time had come to put everything she had learned over the last 10 years into practice and create her own Yoga and Wellness space. Calm on Canning Street was born in April 2018. To offer an even more immersive wellbeing experience, Katy and her husband Ross bought a house on the west coast to hold Yoga and Meditation retreats called Old Kilmun House in 2019.
