Yoga

'Kate's yoga sessions are like mini wellbeing 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.'

My style of teaching

I have developed my own style of teaching from all my different teachers. Hatha and Dru Yoga are the main styles I have practised and my yoga is a mix of these two.

What I find works for me is what I teach. I try to be authentic in that I teach directly from my own experience. My language is invitational; we go on a journey together in each class. I don't often 'adjust' students, preferring to just give verbal instructions about alignment so that each one of us in the room finds our own Asana (comfortable seat).

In every class we work with moving the body in time with the breath, so our yoga practice becomes a moving meditation. I always include a 15 minute relaxation at the end of every class and often a short seated meditation.

My mat is my sanctuary where I come to find my self again and again. We all feel the pressures of modern living and I don’t come to my mat to put even more pressure on myself to achieve, perform or to be perfect. I arrive and get quiet. I tune in and then start to move my body. And I very much take this philosophy into my teaching, inviting students to tune in, feel and respond to what is rising for them in each moment.

Yin Yoga Teacher Training 2019

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.
