Becoming A Yoga Teacher

Many of you who attend my yoga classes will see that I have an awesome round, purple yoga mat. It’s from a fab, independent company call Form, for which I am an affiliate partner (ad).

I recently wrote an article for them with tips for becoming a yoga teacher and below is a sneak peak at the intro…

If you are hoping this blog will tell you how to become the ‘perfect’ yoga teacher, I am going to stop you right there and say that this is not what you are looking for!

I say this with a lot of love and a huge dash of realism! The fact is, just like in life, we cannot be everything to everyone. Once at a yoga event I ran, I had a student talk to me about their teacher training experience and they said: “the biggest thing I am worried about is that not everyone will like my teaching style.” All I could say is, “that’s not a worry, that’s a certainty!”

You can read the full article here! I hope you enjoy and do leave a comment.

Why All About the Om

“I started having group yoga lessons with Kate about 4 or 5 months ago. I find yoga really physically challenging. After a year out injured I have lost a lot of flexibility and strength (and have put on weight). Kate has been amazing and has adapted exercises for me, where needed, and I am seeing huge progress. Each week I can do something I couldn‘t do the week before and am gradually getting more flexible and stronger. I think I most enjoy the effects of yoga as I leave the class. I feel so alive. Whether it is the blood going to my head, or the me time, or the peace in my head I get when concentrating on the exercises, I end up leaving feeling very renewed.” – Emma S

Apres-ski Yoga!

I have added a new yoga video to my YouTube channel – the perfect Apres-Ski yoga stretch (sorry, beers and fondue not included!).

This is a great sequence for stretching out the legs, back and hips – certainly areas of the body that work hard in physical activity like skiing.

But, don’t worry if you haven’t been skiing, this is still a great video to use, so make sure you give it a go and let me know what you think!

Yoga, Barre & Brunch

Today we had a wonderful time at our Yoga, Barre and Brunch workshop at The Stable Wellness in Boyton. We kicked off with a yoga flow to wake us up and then an intense barre workout with Emma. After a delicious brunch at Ginny’s Cafe, we returned to the studio for a bit of yin yoga and chocolate meditation, before a relaxing shavasana. You can see a few pictures from today, below.
