Is it for me?

Everyone can do yoga

For me there is no competition in Yoga. We do yoga, listen and learn from our bodies. Everyone is different. Every body is different. It doesn't matter what you can do and what you can't do. You are your own best teacher and my classes give you the time and space to breathe and learn. You will notice you body's symmetry, you will improve your posture.  You will breathe better and you will be more prepared for your life.  You will also become fitter, stronger and more flexible but that is a by-product.  Everyone can do yoga: male, female, young, old, fit, unfit, healthy, unhealthy and you are all very welcome to our class.

What is Yoga?

What is Yoga? Why do Yoga? Yoga can help you to cope with stress and improve wellbeing as well as helping develop flexibility, strength, balance and co-ordination.

Yoga originated in ancient India – the word yoga comes from Sanskrit and means ‘to join together.’ This is because it focuses on the joining together of mind, body and spirit through three main practices: postures, breathing and meditation.

Yoga is not a religion and although all practices have Sanskrit (an ancient Indian language) names, they also have English translations.

What type of Yoga?

The classes are 1.5 hours long and include asana (physical postures), some pranayama (breath work) and a yoga nidra (relaxation) at the end.  The style is hatha yoga with some yin and vinyasa flows.  Kate offers various levels for the poses so that both beginners and more experienced yogis appreciate the class. Kate likes to bring some of the yoga philosophy to the class as well as her in depth knowledge of human anatomy. 

What shall I bring?

Section Subtitle

Congratulations—you signed up for your first yoga class! Not sure what to bring? Here’s a list of five essentials to cover all the bases.

  1. Comfortable clothing - all you really need is something you can easily move your body in, like flowing trousers without things that will dig in when sitting or lying, a supportive top for ladies —whatever will allow you to be comfortable, rather than self-conscious. At the same time however, you’ll want to practise in clothing that stays put, too, because if you’re constantly adjusting your shirt or trousers and worried about a wardrobe malfunction, this can take you out of the zone or “flow” of the experience. Sometimes we're upside down and loose t-shirts can fall if they're not tucked in.

  2. A water bottle

  3. A yoga mat - however, if this is your first time, I do have quite a few spare mats I can lend you so that you can try a couple of sessions before you invest in your own mat. If you are buying one, they don't need to be expensive, but they do need to be specifically for yoga, not gym or pilates. Yoga mats are slightly tacky to touch which keeps you from slipping in poses like Downface Dog.

  4. Warm Layers - A blanket, jumper and socks for the 15/20 minutes relaxation at the end so you don't get chilly lying on your mat.

  5. An Open Mind - see below...

An Open Mind

There is no competition in Yoga

Last but not least and perhaps the most essential of all things to bring to class… the open mind is integral to approaching yoga. Without an open mind, we can be quick to judge the experience we’re having, judge other students in the room, and even judge the teacher. There is no competition in yoga. Many people come to yoga and beat themselves up before their first Downface Dog. They assume they’re going to be bad at it, that they’re not flexible enough or strong enough, that they won’t know what they’re doing. I am your teacher and I can't do most of the advanced postures. Remind yourself that all you really need is the willingness to be with yourself in breath and body for the lesson, and whether or not you can keep up with the flow of the class or understand Sanskrit is irrelevant. Practising yoga is about listening to your body; experiencing the sensations of the body by way of the breath, getting to know yourself, spending some time on yourself. The end result is a clearer and more grounded, present mindset, which is exactly that post-yoga bliss that keeps us coming back for more. And if a little strength and flexibility comes along with it—well, then that’s a bonus.
