About the Yoga
“My Vinyasa Flow classes are dynamic and reinvigorating, intended to cultivate freedom in mindful movement as the path to finding stillness and reconnecting with the self.
My Ashtanga inspired classes call upon the fundamentals of breath, bandha and dristi and offer more structured sequencing, providing you with a solid framework through which you can explore and progress your practice.
My Restorative Yin classes are an opportunity to slow down and tune in. They provide you with the chance to cultivate qualities of softness, clarity and calm.” (Katherine)
About the instructor
KATHERINE teaches yoga with sensitivity and insight. Her classes are playful and purposeful, inviting a healthy amount of curiosity and challenge without heaviness. She provides students with a safe, nourishing space to explore and experience yoga by focusing on personal attention, alignment, adjustments and modifications that make practice available to you in a way that is safe and un-intimidating.
Her own yoga journey began as a way of dealing with the challenges of modern day life with a little more grace and humility. What started as a part-time curiosity developed into the sweetest adventure as it began to make her hungry for something that called from elsewhere.
Kat circled the globe, indulging her love of travel and seeking out new experiences and esteemed teachers, predominately from the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition, that would later inform the teacher she would become.
It was while she was living in India that she was introduced to Ayurveda and how to use it as a framework for interpreting students individual needs in order to teach them on a more personal, therapeutic basis.
