Scaravelli Yoga teacher
I am a teaching member of the Association of Independent Yoga Practitioners (AIYP). I completed my teacher training with Bill Wood in July 2011 and have been teaching since. Other teachers I have practiced with and been taught by are Caroline Reid-Sinclair, Sophie Hoare, Diane Long and Christine Borg.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about me or the class.
Feedback from Kate's sessions:
"I thoroughly enjoyed the session and was impressed that your emphasis was on taking time to think about the body position and breathing process, rather than on achieving the posture. This was immensely helpful to me, especially my acceptance when I can't quite achieve the posture during a practice. Thanks a lot!"
Scaravelli Classes at BYC
Join Kate for a Scaravelli inspired extended yoga session, inviting you to rediscover movement through your body and spine and restore your body's natural vitality.
Everyone is invited, whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or a complete beginner to find more strength and suppleness in the body through the use of movement, breath, gravity and discovering length in your spine. You are not expected to perform impossible poses, we are moving, breathing and finding more space and strength in our bodies.
Our spine, particularly the lumbar area suffers greatly from tension caused by standing or sitting imbalances, which subsequently limit the natural ease and movement. Our spine is central to our movement, function and sensations throughout the body so we will reinstate space and health to support overall wellbeing.
These workshops explore a free-form, intuitive approach to practice, with a focus on how to move in a more connected, harmonious way. Inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, you will learn to move sensitively, avoiding imposing on the body and helping you to move with ease towards each Asana.
I encourage you to be less fixed on the shape you're making and instead invite you to feel and observe your body as it moves, noticing subtle connections in the body, areas of tension, and patterns of holding that limit your mobility. Learn to use gravity and the breath to both strengthen and release, and find a new freedom of movement in the body.
