Yoga is a way of life


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

I teach gentle Vinyasa and Restorative yoga. I offer compassionate and mindful classes to emphasise the healing benefits of yoga as well as its potential to uplift and energise. My classes are nurturing and focus on breath-led sequences that help release tension, improve flexibility, strength, posture and balance.

We all move and breathe in our own unique way, I help clients become aware of how their bodies feel and move. Together we explore ways of making yoga accessible to all, from beginners to seasoned yogis. Yoga is for everyone. I also have a passion for music which guides us through the flow of movement and breath.

I offer individual, group and corporate classes online and in person.

Blueberry Smoothie

This anti-inflammatory smoothie is an ideal breakfast during an Endo flare up. In fact it’s what I have most mornings as it’s easy to digest and a great way to start the day.

Join me for a 90 minute Yin Yoga practice this Sunday at the beautiful @Heverhealth and Wellbeing studio. A quiet and contemplative practice working deeply in to the body with passive, longer held poses. This will be an introductory class to Yin and you do not need to have practiced before. The more challenging poses will be held between 1-3 minutes and the more restorative poses for longer (you may not even want to come out of them!). We will be using bolsters, blocks and blankets for added comfort.
It could be an ideal end to a day out perhaps if you're visiting somewhere near by like @Hever_castle. The studio is a two minute drive away @hevercastlegolf club.

If you’re in need of an energy boost these home made coconut, lime and mint ladoos (or energy balls) are the perfect treat. They’re gluten-free and made with unrefined sugar. They’re also very satisfying and are one of the only treats that I can actually stop at one, ok maybe two! 😀 For recipe link in bio under journal.

I try to do this exercise as often as I can to ease lower back and pelvic pain. It’s also great if you have tight hamstrings. 
After a recent visit to my pelvic physiotherapist I discovered certain muscles in your glutes connect directly into your uterus and pelvic floor. This lightbulb moment explained how (for me) rolling on a ball can bring so much relief (usually after the exercise rather than during!).
Therefore if like me you have an over active pelvic floor, inflammation, cramps or Adenomyosis, doing regular glute ball rolling could help release tension and reduce pain.
However, this may not be for everyone so go easy. I also wouldn't do it during an Endo/Adeno flare up, but certainly before and definitely after to recover from muscles going into spasm. If it is too strong rolling on the floor maybe try practicing at the wall for less intensity.

I was delighted to be asked to provide a soothing meditation for an @EndometriosisUK fundraiser organised by the lovely @alice_in_endoland who managed to raise over £300! After receiving kind words about how it helped some of those who attended I wanted to share the audio recording with my followers. To get the 20 minute soothing meditation and body scan go to my journal, link in bio. Take care, KTx

I’ve been a bit quiet on here lately after taking a family break and experiencing a bad Endo flare up. But I couldn’t let this month go by without raising awareness for April’s Adenomyosis Awareness month.
Even less is known about this disease than Endometriosis and is often labelled as it’s sister disease. Adenomyosis is defined by the finding of endometrium (the tissue that lines the inside of the womb) within the myometrium (muscular wall of the womb).
Some of us are unfortunate enough to have both diseases. I remember going for a second opinion when I was first diagnosed with Endometriosis, only to be told by the second surgeon that I had Adenomyosis as well as him confirming Endo. 
Five years later, the thing I’m really struggling with is which one causes the most pain? I don’t think doctors know enough and treatment is trial and error. But I really want to know as surgery for Adenomyosis is different to Endo and can be treated with a hysterectomy. 
More research and funding is desperately needed for Adenomyosis and Endo. I know there are drugs and holistic tools that help, which I regularly advocate on here, but if we knew which caused the most pain it could help further with choosing the right treatment.
Can anyone relate? How do you know which disease is the more evil of the two?

A little 8 minute meditative pranayama to quieten down your mind and bring you in to the present moment. To take in the sounds, smells and temperature around you, to breathe, be still and calm.

This is a simple but effective technique for anxiety and one I’ve been doing with my kids. It calms your nervous system by shifting the focus from your thoughts to being in the present moment. Observing your surroundings by noticing what you can see, feel, hear, smell and taste, can really help an anxious mind. You can do it anywhere without anyone even noticing, or maybe others could join in the fun! KTx
