It's always good to get the benefit of other people's experience before you decide whether something is for you. From buying a toaster to booking a yoga class, these days, we like to know a lot about something before we will give it a go. So. I hope these wise words will help you to decide to try a yoga class soon.
Testimonials from Kate's students
I always come out of your classes feeling lighter and brighter. I
very much appreciate your beautifully clear instructions and
explanations, as well as quiet meditation practices to focus the mind -
and all with such a lovely joie de vivre!
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
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

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
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!
