TRAINING & QUALIFICATIONS
Kat has been a student of yoga since 2000 and maintains to an Ashtanga yoga practice in addition to daily pranayama and meditation. She travels regularly to practise with her teachers – Eileen Hall (Sydney), Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor (US/Thailand) and R Sharath Jois (India). Kat completed her initial teacher training under Gregor Maehle & Monica Gauci, and continues to learn from all those around her.
Ashtanga is a physically challenging form of yoga but Kat is committed to making it accessible to all, regardless of age or physical ability, and to keeping the practice fun. She aims to build students’ awareness of the more subtle aspects of the practice: linking the breath to movement, focusing the mind and cultivating calmness.
