Yoga is a way of life


I’m KT, a Yoga teacher based in the heart of Sevenoaks, Kent.

I teach Hatha Yoga. My classes centre around Vinyasa Flow, a dynamic practice that improves flexibility, strength, posture and balance. My classes are nurturing, yet challenging and focus strongly on alignment. I have a passion for music which guides us through the flow of movement and breath.

I offer individual, group and corporate classes, all of which aim to energise as well as help relax and unwind from daily pressures.

Restorative Yoga Improves Sleep

With the uncertainty and anxiety around Covid-19 many of us will be finding it difficult to get a good nights sleep. Depriving our bodies in this way can affect our health. Many of us will try to make up for it by drinking caffeine and eating sugary snacks, which in turn prevents us from being able to sleep, creating a vicious cycle. This is how I used to be before I changed my lifestyle, but it’s easy to slip back into old habits, especially with the added pressures we’re all experiencing at the moment.

Spring is in the air and there’s light at the end of the tunnel! It will be a while before we’re back in a studio, but online classes are a great way to keep moving and stay connected. This Friday, 26 Feb, I’m offering a free online community class at 8-9am. Come as you are, with family, friends, kids and or pets :0). I would love to see you on the mat. Suitable for beginners. DM me for the ZOOM link.  #freeyoga #freeyogaclass #onlineyoga #hathayoga #communityyoga #loveyoga #movement #timeout #connect #minfulness #pranayama #livelife #lockdown #beginnersyoga
As we approach March’s Endometriosis Awareness Month, I wanted to share the benefits of taking a daily dose of Omega-3. Scientific studies have shown how these little capsules lower the level of inflammatory cytokines in your blood. This can help reduce pelvic pain as I discovered after introducing a daily dose as part of an anti-inflammatory diet. Dr Andrew Cook, a leading Endometriosis specialist recommends a daily dose of between 500-4,000 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids. It’s worth a try...  #endometriosisawarenessmonth #omega3 #pelvicpain #adenomiosis #endo #antiinflamatory #antiinflammatorydiet #antiinflammatoryfood #healingnaturally #heal
Place your hands on top of each other at the centre of your chest - close your eyes and feel into the warmth of your heart space. Imagine someone close to you, someone you love and apply that love to yourself.

What an amazing week, full of fun and laughter. It’s been such a treat to see our local park turned into a ski resort! To feel the soft crunch of snow under foot, the cool air on our cheeks and to hear the laughter of children once again. Feeling a little sad to see the snow slowly disappear, but so grateful for the fun that will never melt from our hearts and memories.  #nature #feelinggratefulandblessed #freedominlockdown #fun #snow #snowday #sledging #snowysunset #gratitudealways #liveforthemoment #sunset #bepresent #perspective
It’s OK to cry. Sometimes clients ask me why yoga brings up such emotions, often they’re already there, but we push them away or we’re not fully present in our bodies to feel them.  I came to this morning’s yoga practice a totally different person to the one who showed up yesterday. I felt weak, exhausted and in pain. As I gently breathed, moved and stretched I felt this sense of heaviness throughout my entire body, like I was moving through water. By the end, tears were pouring down my face. I just let them flow, not knowing why I was crying.  I realise now how utterly exhausted I am. I don’t often cry, probably less than I should. Our natural reaction is to fight it and find answers to why we’re feeling this way, but often it’s just what our body needs. During yoga we release energy points in our body, known as Chakras, this can result in feelings of joy, relief, but also sadness.  There is so much happening right now, unseen stuff that we’re all experiencing. For me it’s a constant pain in my pelvis - something I refuse to let take over my life, but sometimes we need to soften, let go and breathe into our emotions. I’m certainly not looking for any sympathy. Instead an acceptance that it’s OK to cry, be angry, be grumpy and to welcome in all these beautiful emotions. Then simply let them go, without judgement.

Like many, I seem to be spending much of my time in the kitchen through lockdown. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE cooking, but right now without a night off in sight, we’re looking for the easiest meals to throw together. AND whilst maintaining an anti-inflammatory diet, to avoid any flare ups, is no mean feat! My husband recently discovered this amazing easy one tray recipe, which I’ve adapted to suit us all! Thank you @alexcbrown48  Head over to my journal via linktr in bio to get the full recipe.

Back to school for me with the kids this morning and some poetry! 😀  #pleasesnow #snowday #snow #goawayrain #nature #poetry #mindfulness #play #homeschooling #weather #moodyskies #mentalhealth
New 8am online yoga class starts this Friday! To accomodate home schooling / working from home I’ve rescheduled my Gentle Vinyasa class. This is a great way to take some vital time for yourself before meeting the demands of the day. As a working Mum I know how challenging it is right now, if you have kids they’re more than welcome to join or be in the background (at no cost).  Currently I run two other classes:
Thursday 8-9pm Flow & Restore
Saturday 9:30-10:30am Gentle Vinyasa Flow  See linktree in bio to book or DM if you have any questions.  A recording is available for those who can’t make the live sessions.  Take care, KTx  #morningyoga #8amyoga #getup #gentlevinyasaflow #wakeupandflow #yogaforendometriosis #endo #timeout #destress #startyourdayright #balance #mindful #happymumhappychild #happydadhappykids #precioustime #takecareofyourself #sevenoaks #kent #yogaonline #zoom #onlineyoga
One of my favourite times each day is stepping out into nature. These daily walks have become a ritual and part of a regular meditation. Placing one foot in front of the other, noticing the ground beneath my feet, sometimes crunchy and cold other times slippery and squelchy.  Each time I try to pause (with the kids running round me) and find a focal point, breathe deeply and take in the moment. This photo is from a few days ago when nature sprinkled a little magic frost all around us. The image has stayed with me and is a place I come back to in my mind when I need calm. By taking moments to pause, observe and be still, we can create positive, lasting memories.  Stay safe, stay well xx  #postivevibes #positivememories #dailymeditation #walkingmeditation #staysafe #nature #walking #yogaanywhere #mindfulliving #mindfullness #endo #calm #mentalhealth #keepgoing #keeppositive #onedayatatime #gratitudepractice #gratitude🙏
