Kate Hamilton-Hunter Reviews


If you are looking for a Yoga Teacher, Therapist or Retreat experience, the best way to find what you are searching for is to get a recommendation... so here are some words from my regular yoga students and retreat guests on how they feel about my teaching style and presence.

Yoga Class Students

“I’ve been attending Kate’s yoga classes for many years. To put it very simply, it’s the best. Just give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.” Lynda Marson

“For me your class is like a sanctuary away from the busyness of life. It's the only time in my daily life that I take time to reflect, rest, restore & revive. You are a wonderful teacher, so calm & serene & have an amazing ability to connect to us, with whatever is going on in our lives. You make so much effort to create a beautiful atmosphere wherever you go, where I feel safe & held, valued and at peace.” Suzy Morris

“Kate’s classes are both a physical and emotional workout, and I always leave our sessions with a feeling of inner peace and balance. I’ve found that my approach to life has changed, and I no longer allow stress to rule my life.
And the venue at St Grwst Church is truly sublime. A feeling of peace and tranquillity greets you at the door and adds to the calm of Kate’s classes”. Kim Ellis

“Upon meeting her for my first lesson I felt welcomed and immediately at ease with her. She has a nice soothing voice that is ideal for yoga nidra, which makes finding that special place of relaxation in yoga nidra all the more easy. I really can't say enough good things about her, I would highly recommend attending one of her yoga classes.” Richard Harding

“Kate has taught me the benefits of practicing regular yoga over the past several years. She brings a full and diverse knowledge to her teachings, often adding to and varying the classes while reminding her yogis the methods to protect from injuries & listening to our bodies. The sky’s the limit to improve yoga practice with this teacher’s enthusiasm and joy for a better life that she brings.” Dr. Kent Hill

"I love Kate's yoga classes. So much of my life is spent speeding around, and I hadn't realised until I started her classes that I (we all) need something that balances our hectic lives. She somehow knows exactly what I need to recharge my body and mind. I look forward to every class." Hannah Price

“Kate brings compassion, warmth and humour to her classes. She is so knowledgeable about all things yoga, ensuring that she can tailor her classes to everyone, regardless of experience and physical ability. I always leave her classes feeling relaxed yet exercised such a great combination. She is good at explaining about the body and how it is working but in a way which is relaxed and flows naturally as part of the class. Her classes are safe and always welcoming.” Liz Liddall

“From yoga virgin 6 months ago, a weekly class with Kate is now part of my weekly diary - lovely gentle practice, great for my body and mind - highly recommended.” Peter McKenzie

"The thing I love about Kate’s Classes is her professional and mindful in her approach, her class is friendly, welcoming and she makes you feel at ease whatever your level of ability. Each yoga pose can be modified to meet the needs of anyone with disabilities- and there is no judgement. I always feel energised, balanced, calm, refreshed, and grounded after Kate’s class." Catherine Farr

"I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying Kate’s Yoga class, been home for 40 minutes and I’m still outwardly sighing contentment" Jan Bertenshaw

"During the classes Kate encourages you to achieve your full potential
at your own level gently but with lots of stretches. Each week is
exciting as it’s always different but following a theme. Each class ends
with meditation and relaxation." Sarah Clarke

"Fabulous relaxing few days. An opportunity to step out of your life and relax in a stunning setting. Lots of help to delve into the deeper aspects of yoga and how to build it into your life. Kate is a fantastic teacher." Fliss Aries

"Kate’s retreat renews and restores in so many various ways. Like levels or platforms of release, she aids in peeling away what is not needed and restores what is. I came to my first yoga retreat last year with Kate and with no expectations. This is my second year, and it has already become a vital part of my annual cycle of life and living in a meaningful and deep way. The sessions’ pace, sharing and the yoga space at Trigonos are perfect and the results are powerful." Danica Maier

"This is my first retreat with Kate. I came with an open mind and no pre-conceived ideas. My first impression was ‘What a lovely lady with a soft, kind voice. I am going to enjoy this!” The sessions were amazing! Kate was very gentle with us, giving instructions that are crystal clear. The Sound Bath / Meditation on the last evening was the most wonderful experience of my whole life! To be so still and to be in total contact with my soul – words cannot describe how that felt! Thank you, Kate, you are an amazing healer. The group work outside was so powerful, it unlocked everything that was blocked. Total Release!" Jean Piddington

"Such a wonderful event! Kate’s knowledge and diversity is vast. It’s fun, it’s organised, and flexible and of course, very professional. I have loved every second. Thank you Kate. Would I come back again? … most definitely! So much to learn, so little time!" Gaynor Lane

The week has been so much more than I expected!" Jon Hall
