About Kathy Yvanovich
Hello. Thank you for visiting my site.
I was born in the Philippines and grew up in Weybridge, Surrey. I started work as a secretary at the BBC; then became a jazz dance teacher and worked for "Strictly Come Dancing" judge Bruno Tonioli as his teaching assistant in the 1980s; I taught dance/performance privately to singers Paul Young, Bananarama, Mandy Smith, Rick Astley, Robbie Nevil; choreographed fashion shows for Cobella, Clairol, Alan International, Schwarzkopf; was house choreographer for London Limelight Club; and performed in some small shows.
My first marriage ended due to domestic violence. After living in a refuge with two young children we moved to a seaside haven near Liverpool, on the Wirral. There I retrained, and taught many styles of exercise classes, jazz dance at HND level, and trained as an actress obtaining LLAM Hons, learnt physical theatre and how to teach drama to kids; and married again. Teaching drama to children, increasing their confidence and finding their voice, was very satisfying. At this point I still hadn't experienced Reiki so I released a lot of my angst with physical and creative pursuits - and kick-boxing!
Returning to London, I worked as a Personal Trainer with an agency and independently; and as an actress including at MOMI, the Museum of the Moving Image in Waterloo.
I first experienced healing hands at a time when I was struggling with being a lonely single mother on one income and recovering from a second failed marriage. A friend suggested I try some "healers" at the local library who were giving 10 minute treatments; well, it was the most wonderful high I'd ever experienced in my life! That feeling continued for hours and of course the memory stays on forever. Immediately I decided, "I want to know how to do that!" for myself, family, friends and my Personal Training clients. So here I am now, sharing Reiki with you!
I qualified as a Reiki Practitioner in 2005, then NLP Practitioner, Psych-K(r) Practitioner and Life Coach. Missing the fun and freedom of dance, I qualified as a Zumba Instructor and teach regular classes at Dulwich Leisure Centre to the over-60s.
I became a Reiki Master and Teacher in 2017 and Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master in 2018.
This website has more information on other therapies; and my London website The Mind Body and Soul Coach, www.themindbodyandsoulcoach.com also explains NLP, Psych-K, Life Coaching and Fitness training.
In February 2020 I completed Yoga Instructor training.
My passion remains in helping people to be well, happy, healthy and fit, naturally; to accept who we are right now; to feel inspired, motivated, loved and at peace; and bliss. I am blessed and proud of my two wonderful daughters and three wonderful grandsons. My partner Robert and I live in a lovely part of London and the French Riviera on the Grasse hills above Cannes.
Our natural state is Love, Joy and Peace, yet our minds sometimes affect our emotions which in turn sometimes create pain and disease in our bodies. I've learnt many lessons from many teachers as well as from life, and some of those really painful experiences led me to follow this self-healing regenerative route; now my work is to promote Love, Joy and Peace within, despite what's happening in our heads, bodies and the outside environment. When something is difficult or I feel blue, I remember to connect to Source and just Be in the moment. After a while, that inner smile smiles.
Life is good.
With love and light,
