Yoga & Women’s Health

My Story

Katie as an eight year old

As an eight year I used to spend much of my time outside on the lawn, on a pretend beam (plank of wood) pretending I was a gymnast. I practiced for hours with my made up routines of jumping, balancing and just moving and extending my body. I loved the balance aspect, the grace aspect and the feeling of being connected.

Pilates & Yoga

My journey into yoga didn’t start with yoga but with pilates. 10 years ago I met the most extraordinary Swedish pilates teacher Kristina Durr, who was living at the time in Cornwall and Kirstina taught me how to become present again, how to notice movement in my body again and how to breathe again. Pilates made such a difference to my physical and emotional body but at the same time as practicing Pilates I also discovered yoga, and I completely fell in love with yoga

In 2006 I trained as a yoga teacher and I was lucky to train with the most incredible yoga teacher Bridget Woods Kramer, who teaches Anusara yoga in Cornwall, London and Internationally.

Bridget is a life force of talent, energy and compassion within yoga and I have learnt so much from Bridget. Not only on how to teach yoga, but how to just be your most authentic and auspicious self.  I had the most incredible 7 months of teaching training in London with Bridget and I have taught yoga ever since.

Teaching is an art, yoga is an art, but the real beauty of yoga is not the aesthetics, but it’s the lasting impression that it has on your mind, body and heart.
