YOGA FOR YOU
We all move differently, so you will be guided in a way that is suitable for your body and needs. Every class inlcudes breathing exercises, movement, and time for deep relaxation at the end.
WHERE AND WHEN
I first learned yoga in the fresh air, so for many years I’ve been teaching outside as much as possible. Indoor sessions happen in workplaces and various locations, private and public.
Get in touch to request morning, afternoon or evening tuition.
HOW IT WORKS
You do not need to be thin and flexible to start yoga; that is one of the biggest myths! Yoga breathing techniques (pranayama) slow down the mind’s never-ending thoughts. Yoga also affects a decrease in the production of cortisol (a stress hormone), which induces relaxation.
Poses can be held for some time or they can be practiced as part of a flowing, heat-building sequence, which is more dynamic.
I work with home-makers, people with disabilities or restricted mobility, women in bigger bodies, students, professionals, people in recovery, and sportspeople.
“We had a waiting list for each block and Kathryn delivered classes to people from a diverse range of physical and social backgrounds; we were delighted to work with her. Quote from one participant: ‘Kathryn’s class is so calm and she is a fabulous instructor’ ” -Padraigh Reale, Garryowen sports officer.
“Kathryn has a gentle, relaxed way of teaching. I always get so much from her class“. -Pauline Nolan.
“It is calming, relaxing, and challenging! Kathryn is a great teacher. -Rachel Massey.
“I did outdoor yoga with Kathryn, she held it an intimate and boundaried space despite it being in a public park. Kathryn is a wise and gentle facilitator, which meant that I was not a bit self- conscious and forgot where I was.“ -Siobhan Potter.
THE ROOTS OF HATHA YOGA
Yoga originated in SouthEast Asia, where the Sanskrit language was used to transmit wisdom. ‘Ha’ means ‘sun’, and ‘tha’ translates as ‘moon.’
Everyday tasks require energy (sun), and it is equally important that we rest (moon). Yoga soothes the central nervous system and promotes balance in life.
