About Kate

I'm an academic turned physiotherapist, sports massage therapist and yoga teacher. My journey started in 2002 with a yoga DVD and everything else has grown from there! Yoga has seen me through my chemistry PhD, research, globe trotting and my current career change to physiotherapy. It's a huge privilege to now be able to share these practices with others.

I completed my first yoga teacher training with Tony Sanchez in 2014 and and subsequently did my advanced 84 asana training with him in 2016. In the interim I fell in love with the gentle power of yin yoga and completed yin trainings with Norman Blair in 2015, 2017 and 2018. Always seeking more knowledge I decided to re-train as a physiotherapist with the aim of unifying my love of science and yoga

My treatment approach is holistic and creative, combining elements from my knowledge of yoga, qi gong, massage and physiotherapy. I'm passionate about enabling my clients to take control of their own health and wellbeing am skilled at tailoring programs for their unique needs.

With my science background I am particularly interested in the healing benefits of yoga and how it can be used to help many chronic Western lifestyle conditions. I am also a firm believer in the importance of an active lifestyle and practicing what you preach. In addition to yoga I enjoy doing flying trapeze, HITT, running, swimming, cycling and weight lifting… not all at the same time though!
