Hello, I’m Kathy, a Mum with four kids and 2 naughty Spaniels who is ultimately happiest when outdoors, chasing views, experiences and adventures.
Busy life but love it.
I've always been an active person and love getting outdoors. Keeping active becomes a challenge when life throws us stressful curve balls and you've little kids at home. Yoga came just at the right time. It gave me time to pause, to move and to learn to acknowledge my everyday. I loved it all so much, I made the decision to learn more, and become a yoga teacher.
I love teaching Vinyasa Flow yoga, a style where movement, the yoga poses and the breath are linked together. I'm always keen to add in other movement elements though, so you'll gain understanding of the importance of building strength and gaining mobility not just flexibility.
My other love is water. I love the calming qualities, the stillness and tranquility. The linked breath and movement of swimming and paddling is very similar to Vinyasa Flow yoga. If I'm not in the studio, then you'll often find me out on the water. Come say hello and we can share a paddle together! I can't think of a better combination - Water and Yoga - it always ends with a few giggles, and definitely more of a challenge than a studio-based class.
As the kids get older (they range in age from 19 down to 11), I’ve found I have more time on my hands to do little things for me, meet friends for small and big adventures. End of May I’m joining a group of like-minded souls to SUP 100 miles down the River Wye over 4 days. It’s going to be a challenge. Not something I’ve done before. SUP with all our kit onboard our SUPs, camp at sites right by the river. I’ll keep you posted as to how training is going!!
This year marks the first time organising a retreat, obviously adventure and water based! A week long SUP SAIL YOGA retreat on a 51 foot yacht off the coast of Croatia….
I'm a qualified 500hr Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher, BSUPA Stand Up Paddleboard instructor for beginners (BSUPA Ready to Ride), British Canoe SUP instructor and SUPFit SUP Yoga instructor. I teach at the Yoga Studio in Cheltenham, Young Performers Dance Studio Cirencester and Cotswold Water Park Hire (Lake 86).
There’s scheduled yoga studio classes in Cirencester and I'm available for private yoga, SUP instruction and SUP Yoga sessions.
