About the event
Kate has been practicing yoga for over 20 years, however would roll out her mat as a way to stretch following a workout, not yet aware of the deeper benefits of this practice. It wasn't until a few years ago, this ancient practice became so much more for her, in working through issues around anxiety, the grief of losing her Father, and managing a lifelong battle with digestive issues with no medical answers or diagnosis - the healing benefits of yoga were undeniable. After taking a 4 day yoga retreat to Wolfe Island in Kingston, Ontario with her husband 4 years ago -- an awakening occurred, and the desire to learn more, practice more, and share the unending benefits of this practice with others ignited. She found a sense of 'coming home' though the Yogashala studio in Waterdown, and under the instrcution of Barb Leese she completed the 200 hour yoga teacher training program in Hatha yoga based on the Iyengar tradition. Kates classes offer a balance of Sthira and Sukha (steadiness and ease) and aim to help the student come back home, to themselves. Kate currently teaches exclusively through virtual classes, and feels this allows the student to turn inward more freely, and find their own way home, to themselves.
Hatha Flow - This class builds more heat in the body, as we move fluidly from one pose to the next with use of sun salutations, physical transitions, all the while linking breath to body in our movements. A graceful moving meditation! Postures are held for shorter durations to encourage a steadiness and ease as we move from pose to pose. No prior yoga experience is required, however this is recommended to those wanting a more physically challenging practice as we will incorporate balancing postures, and inversions.
This class is limited to 4 participants to account for COVID regulations. Proof of Vaccine is required from public health as this counts as an exercise based event. Wait list is available for last minute cancellations.
Fee for yoga is 20.00
