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.

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.

Online Yoga classes start back this week and this month’s focus will be caring for our core. Over the next four weeks we will gently twist and work the muscles around the whole core, the sides and back as well as our abs! The poses that we’ll take will help to encourage our bodies to detox and strengthen all core muscles to support the spine and body.  Current timetable, (suitable for all levels)
Thurs: 8-9pm Flow & Restore 
Fri & Sat 9:30-10:30am Gentle Vinyasa Flow  (A recording is provided to those who can’t make the live session)  I’m so grateful to be able to connect with you from the comfort of our homes and look forward to seeing you on ZOOM.

When you’re on a restricted diet it’s so exciting to find a sweet treat that tastes this delicious! The coconut sugar is a great alternative to refined sugar and the spices have a host of benefits. It’s also a great winter warmer! Recipe under my journal, link in bio.

I keep coming back to this pose for it’s soothing and nurturing qualities. It can be particularly healing if you have any intestinal issues, menstrual cramps or pelvic spasms caused by conditions such as Endometriosis and Adenomyosis.  Take a blanket or towel, fold and roll it into a mini bolster. Lie face down on the blanket with the soft part of your belly resting on the support. Place one hand on top of the other and allow the forehead to rest on the back of your hands. Relax your legs, allow your feet to naturally turn in. Take deep abdominal breaths if you can and hold for 5 minutes. To come out, push yourself back in to child’s pose and rest for a few minutes.  If you’d like to take this pose a little deeper, you can use a bolster instead of a blanket. I find it uncomfortable to start with, as I suffer with endo, but as I breathe deeply the discomfort gradually turns to pain relief. Go easy, listen to your body and see what works for you.  #pronesavasana #endometriosis #endo #yogaforendo #endoawareness #endopain #endogirl #endosister #adenomyosis #yogapractice #endometriosisuk🎗 #pelvicpain #backpain #naturalpainrelief #nurtureyourself #relax #restorativeyoga #bolster #menstrualcramps
What a year, 2020 we won’t forget you. It’s been incredibly challenging and difficult, but also shown us another way of living. It’s taught me so much including a better work/life balance, patience like I never knew I had and an ability to adapt to an ever changing environment. To quote Oscar Wilde, “When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars”. This photo was captured whilst out walking with my kids and it brought a little hope. Thinking of all the medical staff this evening working tirelessly to save lives. Wishing you all a healthy and happy 2021 with much joy, hugs, laughter and a little rainbow magic xx

An inspiring Sunday read!  “No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you’re not breathing properly... Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, halt snoring, allergies, asthma and auto-immune disease. None of this should be possible and yet it is... “ @mrjamesnestor  Thank you @amanda_morley_ for the recommendation!  #breathe #breath #pranayama #heal #yogaforendometriosis #breatheyoga #adenomyosisawareness #autoimmunewellness #inspiration #inspiringread #perspective #healingbreath #breathebetter
