Kitti Johnson


In case you were wondering, I haven't always been a teacher, coach and healer, but I did always know I was destined to be serving others in order to make a difference. Following a period of bad anxiety and a broken marriage which left me empty and lost, I found my way to a yoga studio and became hooked. During this period of my own personal journey, I decided to expand my skills and trained as a Reiki practitioner. Little did I know that a week later, I would be in hospital fighting for my life. 


Waking up in the ICU, the nurse told me that I almost didn’t make it. Realising that this was a wake up call, I decided to follow my passion and became a yoga teacher. I wanted to turn my experience into something that can help other people. I dedicated myself to living my dreams and to being of service.


Following an intense training to become a shamanic healer, I also began to work with private clients going through difficult life transitions. I enjoyed helping women become empowered after a life-changing event, particularly divorce. I saw the power of integrating multiple healing modalities into a framework for transformation and healing. 

What drives me now to continue to create packages and retreats is my pure passion to empower women, to show them how to stand up for themselves, how to be resourceful, how to realise they have a choice; the ability to create their own freedom and to create their own financial security, so that they can live life according to their terms and no one else's. 


Why choose me?                   

Because I know how challenging it can be to stick to your beliefs and enact change. I realise it can come with a lot of judgement from others and fear of failure.


Because I didn’t have any mentors or teachers when I began this journey, I was fumbling around in the dark on my own.

I was occasionally discriminated against for my beliefs which is why I believe it’s so important to connect with like minded people who can support you and lift you up and make you accountable.                        


What's it like to work with me?

This is what one of my clients had to say after working with me for nine weeks..

“I (had) reached a point in my life when I felt completely lost, I felt like I had no purpose, I hardly recognised myself anymore. I wasn’t happy but I was completely overwhelmed by fear and anxiety to do anything about it. I knew something had to change - I felt like time was running out and I had to take charge of my life again, but I just didn’t know how.…Thanks to Kitti I feel like have a purpose in life again. I know that I deserve to be happy and I have the tools and the determination to achieve the future that I dream of. I have a new sense of identity and direction with more focus on my needs and my happiness. I am finding myself again.”
