Kate is the Yogi of the team
The yoga I teach is based on Ashtanga Vinyasa, a dynamic, powerful yoga that helps to keep the body and mind strong, flexible and calm. I say ‘based on’ because I am not a purist, as with coaching I believe in adapting all I have learned to meet your needs.
At the age of 30 I went to my first yoga class after slipping a disc in my back. Back then I did it to help keep my core strong and never had any intention of ever teaching others to do it! Over the years however I realised what a powerful practice yoga can be as I began to notice the changes in my head and heart, as well as in my body.
I haven’t had what you’d call a difficult life, nor has it been plain sailing but yoga has helped me to navigate the rough patches without turning to less healthy crutches (excessive drinking, smoking, prescription drugs for example).
I truly believe there is not a person on the planet who couldn’t benefit in some way shape or form from this ancient practice and I intend to make it my life’s work to bring it to as many people as I can reach no matter what their age or physical limitations! In the words of Patanjali….
“Yoga is the settling of the mind into silence. When the mind has settled, we are established in our essential nature, which is unbounded consciousness. Our essential nature is usually overshadowed by the activity of the mind” – Patanjali
