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.

Golden Turmeric and Honey Biscuits

Since changing my life by eating anti-inflammatory food, I’ve maintained an unrefined sugar only diet. This has only been possible by healthy alternative treats like these delicious turmeric biscuits. I use turmeric wherever possible in food and it works well in this recipe from The Modern Baker.

Golden Milk

I often turn to this drink as soon as I feel discomfort in my pelvis and whenever I’m having an endo flare up. The anti-inflammatory ingredients can ... Read more

Sometimes the day you thought you were going to ha Sometimes the day you thought you were going to have doesn’t quite end up as planned. Today I’ve had to listen and respect my body’s needs and rest. We all do it, push ourselves that is and this morning I tried to ignore my endo pain, got myself ready for work, dropped the kids at school, but then as the pain increased, I looked down at my swollen belly and thought #timeout. Once resting I turned to my 3 part yogic breathing. It can take up to 30 minutes, depending on how I’m feeling, but it can also be done in 10. 
Start by lying comfortably on your back (if you’re in too much pain to come to a mat do this in bed/sofa). Take a moment to completely relax, close your eyes and try to let go of any tension in your body. 
Part 1 
Bring your right hand onto your tummy and your left hand onto your chest. Spend a few minutes observing your breath. Then take slower, deeper breaths into your belly, so the right hand moves up and down as you breath in and out, the left hand remains almost still. Stay with this breathing for about 5 minutes. You can also count the inhale and exhale if it helps, maybe count to around four each time you breath in and again as you breath out. 
Part 2 
Move your hands to your rib cage. (Left hand on left ribs, right hand on right ribs). Breath into the belly first and continue breathing up in to the ribs and chest. Pause at the top of the inhale and exhale back down through the ribs first in to the tummy. Pause at the end of the exhalation. Repeat this breathing for 5 - 10 minutes. If counting is working for you, maybe taking it to around 6. 
Part 3 
Option to move to the final stage, but only if you feel comfortable and without straining. Start by breathing into the belly, the ribs, up into the chest and continue to the collar bone, pause at the top. Exhale back down through the chest first, then the ribs, to the belly, pausing at the end of the exhalation. Repeat for a few minutes. If counting, take it to a number that works for you.  #pranayama #3partyogicbreath #yogicbreathing #rest #endomarch2020 #endometriosis #1in10 #breathpain #relax #healing #healingjourney #breathe  #yogaeverywhere #bepatient
