Adjustments and options are excellently and clearly given to yogis, without being at all judgemental. I found the teacher knowledgeable, engaging and encouraging development of all in the class.'
I really recommend Katherine’s class. A wonderfully slow and calming class which can challenge and strengthen wherever you are with your yoga. I’ve found the sessions are a little holiday from the world around me and are comparable to an hour long massage!
'I have to say how much I enjoy your yoga classes. Always leave feeling much brighter and your tones / instructions really help with finding lovely space focus! I find your class deeply reassuring; both on a bodily level and feeling of being supported within online class group.'
'I've been joining the Yoking classes on a regular basis since last May and have found them to be huge support over this time, feeling more grounded and able to sleep better as a result!
As a beginner it was a great introduction into the practice, gaining knowledge around the teachings. My overall flexibility and balance have greatly improved!'
Great class. I’m a beginner and found that Katherine’s directions to be the same as if she were in the room - she’s really intuitive. I’m particularly grateful for the classes where she’s talked about breathing. I wear a FFP3 mask for work and was getting chest and diaphragm pain from sucking in air, but with a few simple tips this is no longer an issue for me.
'Katherine is an exceptional teacher'
'Yoking is Yoga is what yoga is all about. Katherine’s warmth and sheer love for yoga is clear when teaching and puts the whole class at ease.
The way Katherine describes each pose, each breathing technique and leads you into relaxation is blissful.'
