I'm Katy, a Scottish yoga teacher with a passion for health, sustainability and environmentalism. I completed my 200 hour RYT (Yoga Alliance) training in Koh Phangan, Thailand I have since taught in Scotland, Germany, Myanmar and the Netherlands. I'm currently living in Amsterdam teaching both in person, at studios, and online. With my academic background in Environmental Sciences (MSc), I feel there is a strong need for people to become more connected to the world around them. I truly believe that yoga can be used as a tool to facilitate us in becoming more mindful and conscious of our actions both to the people around us and the environments in which we live.
‘Alignment’ is a commonly used term in yoga asana practice. It refers to the precise movements which aim to maximise benefits within yoga poses while minimising the risk of injury in the process.
While alignment is an extremely important part of any physical yoga practice I have found that it is frequently lost in the discourse of yoga classes. My aim as a teacher is to guide my students in a safe and supportive manner through the use of clear and appropriate alignment cues, offering options for practitioners of all levels, shapes and sizes, no matter what restrictions they may have.
I truly believe yoga is for everyone, and that with the correct guidance anyone can make any yoga pose work for their body.
ALIGNMENT BASED YOGA
YOGA STYLES I TEACH
Join my energetic and playful vinyasa classes where we will synchronise the breath with seamless movement, connecting the body and mind while having fun in the process.
Join me for some relaxing and restorative yin yoga, where we slow down to open up deeper layers of fascia (connective tissues) within the body. In my classes I typically aim to focus on opening up a specific anatomical area of the body.
Meditation & Pranayama
I additionally teach a number of guided meditation & pranayama (breathing techniques) to calm and focus the mind.
