I have been studying and attending my own yoga classes for several years and have just recently started teaching since I graduated from the Shanti Centre Training School in Bristol and Italy with my 200 hour Yoga and Spiritual development teacher training in the study of classical Yoga Philosophy and traditional Hatha Yoga Practice certification.
My training and experience is from an in depth study of traditional Sivananda yoga which is a slower paced style of yoga where we can really focus on meditation, breath work and spirituality. This style is based on the five branches of yoga philosophy; proper breath, proper relaxation/meditation, proper diet, positive thinking and proper exercise. My training and experience also incorporates kundalini, restorative, integral and vinyasa yoga.
I love all that yoga has to offer us. I particularly love the yoga philosophy and spiritual elements that really are a fundamental part of learning true yoga. I love to theme and weave the philosophy and teachings into my sessions, making yoga accessible for all, using blocks, straps and props to enhance my students experience of being in the moment. I like my students to allow themselves to self explore what feels right for them in the present moment, not forcing, not pushing but tuning in and listening to their bodies. This is a really important part of my teaching approach, so that students can feel comfortable and free to be themselves.The Old Rectory Clinic in Iron Acton is conveniently located with easy access from Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne, Westerleigh, Thornbury and the surrounding areas.

From a young age Kate’s calling has been to connect with people deeply and offer them compassion, empathy and counsel. She has been practising yoga for 10 years and comes from a family of three generations of yoga practitioners and teachers. As with many, she started yoga to get fit. However, what she gained was so much richer than that.
I've practiced yoga for many years (after finding myself drawn to it after suffering from back problems). Very quickly after my first class I became hooked and noticed the many benefits, both physically and mentally. I finally decided to fly to India to do my yoga teacher training, during my time there I could fully immerse myself into the spirituality of the practice.
I have studied with many teachers across the country and have been teaching since 2012. I have a British Wheel of Yoga Diploma in teaching yoga (Level 4 on the National Framework), taught by Andrea Newman (now part of the SWYA). I came to yoga in January of 2009 mid-way through my bachelor's degree with an inquisitive attitude and a stiff back.
