The IYTA family extends to all parts of the world, each month we profile members in our association who embody the yoga lifestyle and live our IYTA culture. This month may we introduce Katherine May our IYTA Representative in Italy.
Kat graduated as a correspondence student in 2011. She now lives in Sardinia, Italy with her partner and dog. They have a 10ha plot and are establishing a Permaculture farm, growing organic fruit and vegetables, as well as teaching Permaculture. Next year, Kat’s goal is to teach yoga classes at the farm. For her yoga and permaculture go hand in hand.
