private classes and small group classes available in east woonona
I’m Kathy and my little yoga shed is in the beautiful seaside suburb of East Woonona. Its an unassuming, inviting space where you can do the “work” of true self-care, to help you live the life you want.
I offer a nurturing environment where you will feel “seen” and respected for who you are and where you currently are in your body, your mind, your life’s journey.
My classes are taught through a trauma-informed lens, and are inclusive of all body shapes, sizes and abilities.
I offer a way forward to having more confidence in your own body and what it can do. Better health, more energy and mobility. Less free-floating anxiety, with a calmer, positive and optimistic view of the future. A better sense of self, meaning and purpose.
I truly believe that if you can MOVE better and BREATHE better, you will FEEL better and live more of the life you want.
I want to share with you an incredible practice of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and wellbeing! For you to feel the sense of inner peace and stillness that you can access when you’re feeling frustrated, upset or overwhelmed. To feel comfortable in your own body and to know how to take care of your body, so that it can move with more ease and energy.
I want you to know how it feels to be truly rested AND how it feels to be totally energised.
I want you to understand and be aware of how your own mind works, so that you can be open and resilient to what life brings you, while also forging your life in the direction you want. To experience the importance of taking time to look after yourself to feel far more freedom and joy.
YOU are worth the investment in yourself.
I first tried a yoga class when I was pregnant with my second child ( in 2001). After that, yoga kind of crept up on me… I loved how I felt after class, it felt like I had “reset” in every way! My body felt taller, my breath felt easier, my mind felt clearer and any worries, concerns or ill-feelings I’d had before the class just didn’t seem to have the same “punch” after the class. And it didn’t stop there. This ancient practice started to influence how I felt about myself, my body and my relationships. It started to bring a bigger sense of meaning to my life.
I’ve attended multiple trainings and am a Level 2 Member of Yoga Australia (among other things, this means I’ve completed over 500 hours of yoga teacher training). My yoga teacher experience and training has included teaching yoga to all ages (including children, teens and seniors), the practice of yoga nidra (deep rest) and teaching yoga for trauma, mental health and body image.
I love learning, which is why I’m currently back at university studying a degree in exercise science! In particular, I love learning about how our body, our brain, our mind can best function. I love learning about emotions and why we react the way we do, what motivates us and how we can use ancient wisdom combined with modern science to help us manage life’s challenges.
I want to know how we can get the most out of this amazing life we’ve found ourselves in!
Using my knowledge and experience in collaboration with YOU, I can help create practices that will suit YOUR body, mind, and current life situation, to help YOU live the life you want. To move better, to breathe better, to feel better.
