Welcome to OM YOGA! On this page you will find information about beginning your yoga journey, how to book classes and events online, a few testimonials from my very kind students, and lots of free resources for you.

I believe in creating a space where every-body feels free to come along and to just BE! I invite my students to tune in to their own body's needs, as well as their minds and emotions. I will invite you to meet yourself with no judgement or expectations. And to only do what you feel is right for you in each session. My Yoga is not competitive, challenging or sweaty... and it is not just for bendy people! I believe that every single person can benefit from yoga.
My classes will leave you feeling balanced, centred and rested. I will invite you to tune in to your inner world; to go at your own pace... watching your body, not mine... watching your breath, not mine. I guide you to a place of peace and serenity through gentle stretches, easing into your variation of each posture. Let’s breathe together, move together, be still together and bring ourselves back into balance. Again and again!

I really enjoy Kate's style of yoga. I also love her patience, and humour and her ability to gently encourage and motivate her classes. A wonderful experience that I feel blessed to be able to experience.
Began yoga classes with Kate some months ago at the age of 72 so don't let age put you off. Have recently had a nasty fall resulting in a shoulder injury - went to class again after only a week or so. I was confident Kate would guide me through the session suggesting alternative movements when necessary. Looking forward to being fully fit again and joining some of the Saturday workshops along with my weekly class.
Kate’s commitment, expertise and desire to develop her Yoga and Meditation practise is second to none, as is her desire to share this with others so that they too can find their place of inner peace and happiness. Kate's website and mail-shots nourish you from afar and make you want to return to her classes time after time.
Thank you for being such an amazing teacher and inspiring me to teach!
Having practiced yoga for over 40 years, I was desperate to find a teacher that suited my needs when circumstances allowed me to return to a class a few years ago. I tried three or four different teachers, with different styles, but no luck, before I found Kate - and suddenly I felt as if I'd come home!! Kate's class is everything I believe a yoga class should be - stretching and strengthening, but supportive and calm and full of good vibes. It's not a workout - you can go to a gym for that! - but instead treats the whole person - mind, body and spirit - and helps me to try to be the person I could be if life didn't keep getting in the way! I always feel better when I leave than when I arrived.
Kate’s yoga is a holistic experience, very therapeutic for the body and mind. Essential for modern life.
I cannot recommend Kate's classes enough. Don't think about it, just come! No-one is looking at you (except Kate), you just connect with yourself and the universe. Physical aches and pains float away, emotional stresses diminish and are put in perspective, and spiritually (if you want to) you feel more open and connected.
Yoga with Kate has improved my flexibility, which in the long term has strengthened my lower back (I had general lower back pain through lifestyle and nursing) I am now gardening, playing tennis and badminton. Kate not only teaches yoga moves but takes us through why we do the moves and how it can improve our posture and well-being, looking at our body holistically. I always feel rejuvenated and relaxed after a session with Kate, also at peace with myself and ready to face another day.
Wonderful classes, welcoming and friendly, able to work to your own ability. I feel my posture has improved and I am able to use the breath to relax at home.
Kate's yoga sessions are like mini well being retreats. I love how relaxed and personal the space feels. The cup of herbal tea at the end of every session is a lovely touch. Yoga Nidra has been a wonderfully positive experience; something very new for me. Enjoyable yoga class with a highly knowledgeable and holistic teacher.
Kate has brought a new calm to my life.
Having recently moved to the area I was looking for a local yoga class. Hatha yoga was my usual practice but when I read about Dru Yoga I was intrigued. I booked my lesson online and off I went. Kate couldn’t have been more welcoming. It is a small intimate class and everyone was so friendly too. Kate is extremely knowledgeable and explains every move in detail, doing all the poses herself and guiding us gently through the Dru yoga poses. At the end of the class we all share a cup of herbal tea; whichever tea we have it is shared with love and chatter. I can’t leave out Kate’s gorgeous cat Cinnamon who loves to join in the relaxation too. Ahimsa I would highly recommend Kate’s classes for beginners or those well practiced in yoga.
Kate is just right in every way. The classes are well-balanced and very enjoyable. My flexibility has improved.
Thanks to Kate, the yoga classes are a pleasure to attend. The attention I have had has been so helpful and (as I am 79 years old) I have enjoyed every class and hope to continue.
Thank you Kate for an amazing first experience of your yoga class - I feel invigorated. I've never felt like this before about yoga or any other exercise -thank you.
I have been to many exercise classes in the past and after a few months I have become bored and demotivated. I’ve never found anything I want to stick to. That all changed in January 2017 with my first yoga class. Kate’s classes are amazing on so many different levels - she is patient, encouraging, motivating and above all has a fab sense of humour. It doesn’t matter what age, size or fitness ability you have you’ll love her classes and you’ll make very special friends. Yoga has given a new dimension to my life. Kate explains all the movements really clearly and why each one is so good for you. You feel completely uplifted after a class. Give it a go you won’t regret it - why not try her workshops too? Fab, fab and more fab!
Ace … pleasantly surprised with how therapeutic and easy-going the class is. It has helped me no end with posture and well-being.
Kate is an energetic yet softly spoken teacher, Classes are fun and friendly and informative with lots of variety of exercise and great interaction with her students.
Kate's Yoga Classes are amazing and have a wonderfully positive impact on my body and mind. She balances relaxation, posture work and body conditioning perfectly and all to beautiful music. The environment is perfect and Kate has an easy, natural, inclusive style that creates a feeling of calmness, strength and joy within me - a truly inspirational teacher.
I love Kate's classes; she inspires me to practise more. She is so approachable and inclusive; each class is different, in response to the ability of the group. She also explains the benefits of the movements and each lesson is an education. I would highly recommend her classes.
Thank you so much Kate, you have made such a huge difference to my well-being in such a short space of time.
Yoga should seriously be promoted for ladies who have just had babies as I know I would have joined a lot sooner had I known what I know now! Thank you for your fab lessons!
The yoga takes place in a calm, beautiful space and Kate is knowledgeable and inspiring. You can work at your own pace and are made to feel comfortable in the class. Very enjoyable and relaxing; highly recommended.
I find the diverse aspects that Kate covers helpful and interesting. It is the only yoga class I have attended that has introduced modifications. The classes have kept me mobile and kept hip problems at bay.
It’s my favourite part of the week! I notice the difference if I miss one class. I wish I could come every day.
Kate inspires you to want to keep carrying out yoga. Such a depth of knowledge, I feel welcomed and relaxed after the session. It’s time for myself to get away from hustle and bustle that life brings. Helps focus and bring you back to the present time just concentrating on you as a person.
Coming to Kate’s classes have helped me find balance and calm and I really look forward to coming every week.
I really enjoy your weekly classes very much - your very clear and careful instruction and demonstration of moves and poses together with clear explanations of the benefits of each one - and all with such a sense of joy! Since joining the class at the beginning of the year, I've found it hugely beneficial on all levels. Many Thanks!
Kate's classes are a fantastic experience - lovely, relaxing and toning sequences. Sessions are run in a friendly atmosphere. Kate is an excellent teacher.
Kate’s voice is therapeutic and soothing, she is an experienced teacher who makes you slow down and relax. I hate missing my weekly classes. They are a real tonic.
