Yoga is brilliant for overall health, and it is soothing. I love to see the change in people as their stress melts away at the end of our practice.
Constant stress is at the root of many health problems, and burnout (emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion) is on the rise. Yoga is a way of bringing awareness to any imbalances. It supports natural vitality.
The body is full of wisdom and I respect that, which is why I adapt yoga to suit my ever-changing needs and energy levels. So how can yoga help you?
- First, it strenghtens the body and in some cases, makes it more supple. This can impact on your whole life in a positive way.
- If you experience mental agitation or anxiety, yoga can be a calming balm: focused breathwork works wonders.
- It will teach you how to listen to and respect the needs, limits, and changes in your body.
- Yoga cultivates self-acceptance, gratitude, and a lot more besides.
Yoga is proven to improve heart, bone, and brain health.
My classes are secular and I focus on three main elements:
- pranayama (breathing exercises)
- asana (yoga poses) for strength and balance.
- deep relaxation to finish.
“Kathryn is an excellent yoga teacher who takes time to help you relax and learn the poses. You work to your own abilities, with guidance and encouragement from her. I love that the classes are non-judgemental. I would highly recommend Kathryn’s classes, indoors or outdoors.”
“Kathryn’s classes are relaxing but they still challenge the body. It’s like a boost of rocket fuel for the day. You can see that she has a real passion for teaching. Yoga builds strength and flexibility. It also helps to increase levels of hemoglobin and red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body to increase stamina.“
