Kat offers an engaging, challenging, fun, enthusiastic and compassionate teaching style which radiates positive energy and warmth from the moment you step into her class.

Manon L.
AWEsome class, thanks Kat.I liked your comment where you said that some yogis improve their practice when they practice at home away from the peer pressure in class. So true! I find that I‘m much more relaxed and ready to work on my nemesis poses. I‘m now practising mermaid and wheel (which I have stopped doing years ago). Feels great :-) But I’m equally ready and looking forward to the energy of classes in the studio. X
Adele T.
Kat classes have a very calm and steady pace with an incredibly deep and precise practice.To every class I ever participated I’ve always left the mat feeling to have learn something new and essential.Kat teachings are amazing and so her energy..A “to do not miss experience” for any yoga lover.BML team standout and Kat is one of his pearls : )
