Hello! My name is Katie, I am many things!
I am a Belly Dance, Kids yoga and TEFL English teacher currently living in the South West of England (Devon). At the moment I am saving for Teen Yoga teacher training & a RYT 200 Yoga teacher training. I am also an Artist, Indian head massage therapist, Reiki practitioner and trainee Magdalene Priestess meaning I can facilitate goddess & sacred feminine circles.
I am a Northern Lass from Lancashire (with Celtic & Romany Iberian Ancestry) but after my Fine Arts degree I moved to Plymouth to live with my partner Jon who is a professional photographer & videographer.
As a Traveling Yogi I have visited 17 countries, 3 of which I have backpacked around (Morocco, Nepal & Croatia) and I have lived in Cyprus & China. My Mum now lives in Bulgaria (whom I visit often) and my partner & I are planning to backpack around the far East and live in Thailand for 2 months whilst I do my yoga teacher training from December 2017 into early 2018. I hope to Vlog about my traveling experiences soon on my youtube channel.
Sunflowerteeth Blog is my one-woman labor of love where I write about my life journey, travel, publications, recent art or dance performances, my yoga stories and interview inspiring people from around the world.
I love magic & mysticism, herbal tea, books, essential oils, candles & beautifully strange things.
I also love raw vegetables, the smell of earth after the rain, cat-naps, henna design, dream-catchers, Beluga whales & day dreaming.
I have exhibited videos & performed around the UK as well as Cyprus, Bulgaria & Morocco.
I have been featured in publications like GEEKED, Tribe Magazine, The Voice (Cypriot Newspaper), Belly Dance Vogue, F*ckyeah Journals! and voted one of the top 25 European yoga bloggers of 2016 by DoYouYoga.
I’ve been a contributing writer for 2 years with Yogi Approved & Bad Yogi and had featured prose published with Elephant Journal Rebelle Society & Eat.Breathe.Thrive. I am now on a writing hiatus to expand upon my own poetry book and grasp new writing opportunities with other platforms. Contact me for details.
I am available for community arts group & solo work, exhibitions, performances, teaching dance, yoga & art workshops, interviews & other cool things.
Welcome to my little Sunny corner of the Internet.
If you are more of a visual person here is a blog post that sums me up in pictures rather than words: “Hello! I’m Katie & I’m an Artist.
