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.
Skilfully weaving in classical alignment and mindfulness with creative dynamic sequencing and thought provoking philosophy, Kat provides a fun and challenging space for students to deepen their practice, challenge their limitations, and reconnect to body, breath, mind and heart, usually with an arm balance or two!
She draws inspiration from yogic philosophy, Eastern philosophy and Western science, and combines her deep love for learning and teaching with her passion for empowering students to focus on the skill of alignment, subtlety of breath and mindfulness. Her aim is to have her students leave the classroom feeling light, more fully alive, peaceful and connected, and to carry that out into the world.
