About

Breathe

Not just the name of my company or a bodily function that happens without thinking, but also an underutilised and overlooked way to improve health. By harnessing your breath you can override the fight or flight response you get when you feel stressed. It helps to induce calm and bring a sense of equilibrium back to your mind and body to support a healthy nervous system. There are various pranayama (yogic breathing) techniques as well as other styles of breathwork. These can energise, heal and revitalise your body. I am fascinated with the way our breath can calm or stimulate the nervous system and as I  deepen my knowledge in this area,  I will continue to weave it into my classes so that you can feel calm and in control.

Dance

To be able to move with freedom, expression and joy is an absolute gift. One of my favourite things to do is to dance to uplifting house music, you will ALWAYS find me on the dance floor on a night out! I’ve fused this love of dance, house music and yoga to bring you my Yoga Vibes events. During these events we move through dance infused yoga flows set to a great house music soundtrack and fill our souls with JOY! You will always leave feeling, UPLIFTED, ENERGISED and HAPPY.

Yoga

I teach a vinyasa flow style of yoga which guides you through asana (postures) with a strong connection to your breath. I encourage you to have a deep awareness of the body, strengthening the mind-body connection and developing a deep sense of self compassion. There are eight limbs of yoga. Two of them being ASANA and PRANAYAMA which are great places for you to start. Practising yoga is a continuous journey of self discovery which will empower you in all areas of your life. I am so grateful that I can help and support you as you embark on this amazing journey.

I absolutely LOVE teaching yoga, and trained with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2015. Yoga has helped me with so many areas of my life. In particular, it’s helped me with:

    • My body image after having children.
    • Managing my stress which in turn improved my eczema and helps me to adapt to the ever changing circumstances of life.
    • Discovering a completely new appreciation for my body. I now recognise the power it holds and the potential for continuous renewal and change.
    • Discovering my inner strength & courage so that I can stand in my own truth.
    • Cutting through my mind chatter to focus on what really matters.
    • Finding moments of pure calm and quiet.
    • Improving my overall health and wellbeing.

And if I can do that, I know that you can do it too!

My background in dance comes through in my yoga classes as we flow through thoughtful, intelligent sequences with a strong focus on alignment. I am interested in you getting the best out of your body, enjoying how it moves and discovering it’s infinite potential. Your body needs to be strong AND functional and so through my classes you will develop:

    • Strength
    • Stability
    • Mobility
    • Balance
    • Flexibility

I taught dance in education for over 15 years so teaching comes naturally to me. I also know that not everyone learns in the same way so my classes have a mix of demonstration, verbal visualisation and alignment cues. As well as hands on adjustments for any in person classes. I think yoga in school is really important and I am passionate about bringing yoga to children and young people.

I can’t wait to welcome you into my community and support you on your way to find the best version of YOU!

Lots of love, Cat xx
