Kate’s passion for Yoga began in the 1990’s where she learned the precise and disciplined Iyengar style in Christchurch and Nelson. Living overseas for 20 years in the UK and Australia she has also explored Ashtanga Vinyasa, Power Vinyasa, Hot, Bikram, Yin, Nidra, Laughing and Yoga Synergy styles. She completed her Yoga Synergy teacher training with Simon Borg-Olivier in Goa, India in 2017.
Kate loves to share a novel Synergy inspired flow, as well as incorporating restorative postures and meditation. Her classes are fun, focused, attentive, explorative and reflective. They promote positive mental health and well-being through activation of the parasympathetic contentment hormonal pathways. They provide an opportunity to more mindfully connect to head, body and heart centres and chakras.
Kate’s science and health background means she is always seeking to connect ancient philosophies with current lifestyle medicine. Alongside teaching yoga and meditation, Kate loves to spend time in her permaculture garden, walking and swimming in nature and enjoys conscious dance.
