Hey there, I'm Katie. I'm an experienced yoga teacher that is here to guide you towards a practice that starts on the mat and eventually seeps into your life. You will experience thoughtfully designed classes that will challenge you - you will get stronger in body heart and mind. I combine my years of experience in traditional hatha vinyasa with modern mobility and strength training techniques to curate a life long sustainable practice that will help you age with ease and grace. We practice to get better at life, not better at yoga. 

 

I have over 850 hours of teacher training and am a qualified teacher trainer. I've taught on 2 different yoga teacher trainings, host nurturing yoga retreats, teach yoga to 2 Scottish premier football clubs & I teach corporate yoga sessions, you're in good hands!

If I'm not teaching or practising I'm enjoying the hills with my dog Babs.

TESTIMONIALS

Katie teaches with such grace and kindness that I feel equally pushed to challenge myself and to appreciate what little I can do. I feel really fortunate to have met Katie and I look forward to learning more from her.

“Katie teaches wonderful classes which are kind, challenging, thoughtful and inspiring. Options are always provided and no harsh expectations on what you can achieve. Your body, your yoga.” AMANDA

I love a Katie class whether it’s hot flow or power or a delicious candlelight flow to Yin, Katie guides you through with clear and calm instructions. Each class you choose the pace, it’s powerful, it’s challenging, it’s inspiring, it’s fun .. it’s yoga

I’m still finding my way into yoga, but Katie is a wonderful teacher - her approach is so precise and careful, but full of the joy of movement. The morning classes are brilliant - everything from sweaty falling over to a gentle ease into the day. Monday evening Yin is my favourite - a one hour reset for the week. NIGEL

I can't recommend Katie's classes enough. The early morning community and practices especially have meant so much to me during this challenging period, and that's all thanks to Katie's compassionate, challenging, mindful and inspiring way of teaching and being. I can't imagine anyone ever not feeling 'part' of Katie's classes, she has such a beautiful gift for making everyone feel valued, no matter where they are on their yoga journey.

I have attended Katie's classes both online and in person. Her authentic style, kindness and humanity are above and beyond what I've experienced in a yoga studio or teacher. I love practicing with her, never feel that I have to compete and always find laughter in her practice. A joy. Can highly recommend.

Katie's approach to yoga has really instilled a yoga adventure in me. I had been enjoying hot yoga couple years ago when this new American teacher with a big smile arrived and had us all doing headstands against the wall. This not only fired my imagination but also encouraged me to ramp my yoga journey. When working away from home, I practice most days using techniques learned from Katie. when I was at home over the last lockdown year I enjoyed regular Zoom classes every morning. I envisaged online classes to be a short term fix and would become dull repetitive, and lacking in motivation, thankfully. I was completely wrong. Katie's seemed to have tireless energy, as she constantly strove for new techniques or flows not just to keep the class fresh but also so we gain a better understanding of poses and body function. thanks Katie your classes have made me a better person not just because I can perform single leg balances, and funky Pincha or bend into crazy shapes but because yoga with you has taught and helps me treat others, myself and my surroundings with more respect and compassion than I thought I possessed.

Have been practicing with Katie via live Zoom classes since March 2020. She is an inspirational teacher - lovely, always smiling and kind with a calm, encouraging and supportive approach. It's been lovely becoming part of this online yoga class community. Thanks for your great teaching I highly recommend these classes . AMANDA
