Katie Connolly

Founder + wellness expert

Katie believes in addressing wellness from a holistic perspective: socio-emotionally, intellectually, physically, and energetically. Thoughts affect our emotions, which affects our bodies, our actions, and our lives.

Katie was taught meditation and breathwork as a child, which in turn inspired her life's work. At eighteen she had the vision to create a space where families and people of all ages could connect through the arts, movement, spirituality, and wellness. This eventually led to owning and operating Studio 202 (until March 2020), and Katie being invited to lead a not-for-profit through a period of dramatic change in the role of Executive Director. Prior to Studio 202, Katie pursued a career in finance, operations, and learning and development. Katie has since re-branded her offerings to gloWithin - offering somatic and counselling support for families. Her aim and passion is to inspire and bring greater balance, peace and joy to one's life and work.

Katie's qualifications include a Masters in Counselling (Candidate), a Bachelor of Business with a focus on International and Change Management, and a Certificate in Workplace Learning. She is a Craniosacral Practitioner, Expert Registered Yoga Teacher (ERYT-500), a Registered Children's Yoga Teacher (RCYT), Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT), Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP), founded a Registered Children's Yoga School (RCYS) in which she teaches educators, therapists, parents and others to empower children and youth.

Niki Inglis

Wellness Expert

Niki’s early love of art, photography and design led her to her Masters in Architecture at Dalhousie University and a career in Universal Design here in Vancouver BC. It was in this arena that she began to feel the joy of helping people. One formative project was reworking the plans for the Vancouver Library so that all users could feel comfortable in the space.

As a young woman, she noticed that movement, and yoga in particular, eased the difficulties of three pregnancies, and she immediately sought her 200 Hour teacher certification, making a major career shift. Twenty years later she has taught thousands of hours of private and public classes, 25 international wellness workshops and retreats and over 20 teacher trainings. In 2015, following a strong desire to improve the quality of teaching in yoga teacher training programs, she obtained her Masters in Education from UBC.

The difficult times of the pandemic motivated her to further deepen her studies of the human nervous system. She is expanding her knowledge and the value that she brings to students and private clients by earning her Masters in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. She is co-director of the yoga teacher training school, Whole Body Paradigm, which offers traumasensitive, socially-just, traditional and science-based teacher training programs in Vancouver BC and Costa Rica.
