Beate “Billy” McLatchie
Beate, the previous studio founder (now the studio is sold to Alkemy Yoga), is orginally from Innsbruck, but lived in Bali for 22 years after graduating in international management studies in the United States and several years in politics and business. Her two daughters Chiana and Davina were born on the island. Several of her passions were awakened in Bali: interior design, villa construction and management on one hand, and healthy nutrition, alternative healing methods and of course yoga on the other!
Her teaching is based on a mixture of Iyengar Yoga, therapeutic Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, free movement (Sahaja yoga) and intuitive Vinyasa Flow. It is important to her to teach yoga beyond asanas (physical postures). “The body is just the very tip of the iceberg – let’s explore the vast unseen below!”.
With her senior teacher Olop Arpipi in Indonesia she has been practising Iyengar intensively for 20 years. Beate has also completed a 500h Yoga Alliance International Yoga Teacher Training through the 200h Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center in Neyar Dam, Kerala, South India and 300h Vibrant Living Yoga in Bali (Vinyasa Training). She studied with Shiva Rea, Aadil Palkhivala, Sharon Gannon/David Life/Twee Merrigan of Jivamukti Yoga, Rusty Wells, Tara Judelle, Kausthub Desikachar (was her personal mentor), Patricia Walden, Lois Steinberg, Manos Manouso and Dharma Mittra.
At the moment her focus is on teaching yoga worldwide and Yoga Teacher Trainings in Vienna and Bali. Keeping balance, clarity and serenity in her life is a top priority besides her active commitment to refugees, the environment and animals. Beate hopes to support and inspire others to be mindful and aware of the moment, thereby finding her/his “dharma” (purpose in life) and truly do what she/he really loves in accordance with family, community and the planet.
Besides her full time yoga & wellness studies and teachings, her interests lie with languages, especially ancient ones, holistic healing therapies and wholesome nutrition.
