about katya warner teacher

HELLO!

I'M KATYA

I am a teacher, writer, traveler, entrepreneur, and social justice advocate.

I lead with my heart.

I'm on a mission to help every woman I meet realize her power and create a life overflowing with authenticity, freedom and magic.

Through intentionally-designed coursework, powerful retreats, and a growing international audience of badasses, I help women like you align with their desires and take inspired action to bring their dreams to life.

For the first decade of my adult life, I played small.

While I'm proud of the work I did and the life I lived during this time, I followed the safe path laid out by societal norms and pushed down the callings of that still small voice inside me.

I bounced around as a classroom teacher, coached youth swim and water polo teams (Go Gators!), earned a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, and was on track to becoming a school principal.

As much as I LOVED teaching and working with kiddos, I felt trapped, exhausted and poor. I was functioning on autopilot. I wasn't living intentionally.

I would often stand in front of the classroom and silently think, this isn't for me. Overwhelm would creep in without warning and wasn't a quiet guest. My inner voice grew from a whisper to a shout: I needed to make a change.

About Katya Warner

I listened.

I quit my jobs as a teacher and swim coach, sold my car, donated a bunch of furniture and clothes, moved out of my apartment and bought a one-way ticket to Rome.

I used the funds I'd initially been saving to buy a home to explore our world for a year, meeting beautiful people and places along the way.

Traveling around the world solo for a year took courage, openness, and deep trust in my inner voice.

I learned these truths:

  1. When we open ourselves to the world, the world opens itself to us.
  2. Everything we need exists within us already. We have the answers.
  3. Gratitude works wonders beyond measure.

katya warner about

Halfway through my year of travel, I spent two weeks in Northern India on a yoga retreat. This experience transformed me so much so that I created my own yoga retreat company, Travel Soul Yoga.

Running a business cost me my comfort zone but gifted me with connections to incredible women around the world.

At the beginning of 2020, I tripled my investment in Travel Soul Yoga and took bold action to expand the business -- launching more retreats in one year than in the previous two years combined. Weeks before our first retreat of the year on the Amalfi Coast, travel shut down...as did the business.

Cue another pivot.

While on a walk with my mom in my mountain town hometown I found myself saying, "I'm doing Cocoon Work."

This phrase stopped me in my tracks. There was power in these words. What I was referring to was the sitting, reflecting and journaling I had been doing during this time of pause. I had no idea this would turn into the flourishing course and community it is today.

I created Cocoon Work with intention - to help women tune into their authentic power and take clear action to live BIG lives.

Each time I return to the meditations and exercises in Cocoon Work, I feel more aligned, more clear and more inspired to take action. I've moved through this work over and over again -- when I've felt stuck, uncertain or just in need of time with myself.

Here's what I know to be true:

You are meant to live a life that is the fullest expression of you.

Cocoon Work is designed to tap into your highest Self and offers a clear path to creating the life you know you are meant to live.

I am beyond honored to share Cocoon Work with you. I can't wait to see the magic you create!!
