Kathryn started her regular yoga practice during the 1980s with then Iyengar yoga teacher Shandor Remete.
Initially drawn to its mindfully energising effect, the benefits of yoga have supported her over the last 35 years. Kathryn undertook teacher training with the Heart of Yoga Association in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar 12 years later.
This tradition focuses on a student’s individual needs rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Kathryn’s yoga teaching is sensitive to you personally, whether moving in asana (postures), regulating your breathing (pranayama) or focusing your mind (meditation) and deeply relaxing.
She has been teaching yoga for 12 years and specialises in working with mature students. Her previous oldest student was an enthusiastic 91 year old woman!
Kathryn follows the dictum of the late Italian yogi, Vanda Scaravelli, who started yoga in her 40s and taught into her 80s.
Vanda advised, ‘Do not look at your body like a stranger, but adopt a friendly approach towards it. Watch it, listen to it, observe its needs, its requests, and even have fun. To be sensitive is to be alive.’
