Katresha Moskios, co-creator of The Pearl Laguna, was an Australian model turned faith healer who travelled around the world, later studying at the London College of Health & Beauty and continuing her research in nutrition with Dr. Bernard Jensen in San Diego.
Following an automobile accident that left her skin scarred and damaged, Katresha created her own skincare line, Katresha Pure Skincare. After spending two months in the hospital, she went on a 28-day cleanse with ingredients and healing broths she still serves to guests at The Pearl Laguna, a yoga, hiking, and cleansing retreat center in California.
Katresha began practicing yoga as a young woman and, in 1975, was certified by Indra Devi as a yoga teacher. She spent time studying with teachers in India and energy healers in the Philippines, teaching yoga at studios in the United States and on retreats at locations around the world. She continues to teach at Yoga Works in Laguna Beach to a longtime following of students.
