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.

Body Scan

As you may already know, this week is Mental Health Awareness week. Whilst we're all adapting and trying to manage our stress levels during this unprecedented time, it is vital we take care of ourselves both mentally and physically. To mark this week, I've put together this short 8 minute body scan that can help connect your body and mind.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted having suffered a painful Endo and Adenomyosis flare up. Part of my pain management is at the hands of this amazing woman, Maria Elliott, a specialist in pelvic pain @meps_uk .  More often than not if your shoulder or knee hurts, you seek physio, so why not on your pelvis? Like other parts of the body there are muscles, nerves, fascia and ligaments. In my experience, these tighten and spasm causing excruciating pain. Physio releases the muscles and fascia to free up organs and nerves in the pelvis that have become compressed, irritated and inflamed by the disease.  This treatment should be more accessible to Endo patients, especially those experiencing debilitating pain. As well as being offered hormonal treatment, painkillers and surgery, there needs to be more awareness for pelvic pain management through physio, anti-inflammatory diets and breathing exercises. Best pain relief in the last four weeks!  #pelvicpainphysio #pelvicphysio #painrelief #painreliefoptions #endometriosisuk🎗 #adenomyosis #endometriosissurgery #endo #invisibleillness #chronicillnessawareness #womenshealth #gynaecology #antiinflamatory #fascia #endometriosisawareness #breathe #pelvis #endowarrior #chronicillness #1in10 #pain #painmanagement #endobelly #endobellysisters #fuckendo

Is anyone finding it hard to sleep? With all the uncertainty and anxiety at the moment our sleep can be affected, which in turn impacts our health. I often turn to restorative yoga in the evenings and it really works! This graph shows my sleep the night after a practice, over 8 hours in total, 3 of them deep sleep. (I average 6-7 hours, 60 mins deep.) Sleep deprivation is linked to hormone imbalance and inflammation in the body. So for diseases such as Endometriosis and other hormonal / inflammatory disorders sleep is vital for the body to function. 
Restorative yoga relaxes your nervous system and creates a state of rest in the body. It’s perfect to do in the evening and involves calming poses that are cooling and nurturing. Supportive props like pillows and blankets, (all accessible at home), make poses comfortable so you can hold them for longer. 
To find out more about restorative yoga and sleep head over to my journal on the website. Or join a Flow and Restore class, every Thursday evening at 19:45 on ZOOM. A great way to unwind, release tension and prepare for a good nights sleep.
