About Katy Cox
My greatest passions are: exploring the natural world, food in all it’s forms, healing through touch and the study of yogic sciences. Over the years this has lead me down many wild and wonderful paths including owning and running an organic farm, exploring the underwater world as a diver, traveling to far flung regions in search of exotic flavors and diving deep into the art of culturing living foods and discovering their health giving benefits.
My personal experience of maintaining vibrant health through good food and movement practices led me to pursue my career in the health and wellness industry. I started working as a chef for yogis in southern Spain and later diversified as a clinical nutritionist after completing my Diploma in Nutritional Therapy in 2009.
In 2012 I took a deep dive into the wonderful world of raw food science with a course in plant based nutrition at the Living light culinary institute in California.
My yoga journey
My yoga journey started in India in 2000 with a month long Iyengar training, I have been a devoted practitioner ever since. Asana and pranayama practice are integral to my life and provide a reference point for me that keeps me grounded and energized as well as physically robust.
It is a great honor and privilege to be able to help guide my clients compassionately in their journey towards optimal health and wellbeing. Health and healing for both individuals and the planet are what drive me and, through my work, I hope to inspire others to spread the love!
Since 2000 I have worked as a professional chef, focussing primarily on health supporting whole food diets and exploring regional cuisines. The majority of my work has been in the private sector, catering for families and individuals in their homes, vacation properties, jets and yachts. I have a long history of working with yoga and wellness retreat centers across the world providing creative and nourishing menus for their clients and staff. I spent a few years catering for large music industry events and artists and working for HNW families. I also periodically utilize my skills working voluntarily for non profits and charities.
Cooking for families and individuals has enabled me to explore how to offer tasty and fun foods for children and also those who may have restricted diets due to allergies, cultural dictates or particular health conditions. Combining Nutritional therapy I am able to design and implement bespoke programs that can be followed either by individuals or by in house staff.
Yoga / Healing arts
Having practiced yoga for many years, I took my initial teacher training in 2013 at the Nosara Yoga Institute and have subsequently completed courses in Restorative, Yin, Dynamic yoga and yoga Therapeutics. I enjoy working in a retreat setting or private sessions and have recently had the pleasure to teach large groups of children.
I believe that yoga is a powerful personal and collective healing tool and a wonderful way to ‘tap back in’ to long buried ancient pathways that offer vital energy and longevity.
The main focus of my work is to use food, movement and relaxation in such a way as to promote balance and enhance vital energy in all stages of life.
