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.

Turmeric and Endometriosis

Turmeric is a great spice to incorporate into your endometriosis diet as its active ingredient, curcumin, is anti-inflammatory. It’s been shown to reduce estradiol production and so MAY slow the progression of endometriosis. There’s also been some preliminary studies that show curcumin receding endometriotic cells in a dish!

Creating, making and taking up space in our body and mind is vital for our wellbeing. A theme we’re focusing on in class this month.  Feeling much gratitude to all the lovely yogis who joined me on the mat today and let me guide them through their practice and explore space around and within us.  Weekend classes:
Saturday 9:30am Gentle Vinyasa Flow 
Sunday 9:30am Yoga for Endometriosis  *Both classes will be online due to the weather. Hoping to be back in the garden next week…  Have a lovely weekend and if you can make space, perhaps to take some slow, deep breaths or a moment to stretch out! :0).  #metime #selfkindness #space

Garden Yoga is here! I’m so excited to be welcoming yogis back on my lawn for some in person yoga. Classes are every Friday & Saturday 9:30-10:30am (weather permitting). To book visit link in bio.  It’s also Kindness & Compassion week so why not welcome in some self love? Tenderly wrap your arms around your ribs and give yourself a hug. Bring your hands to your heart centre, to a place where you feel rather than think. Notice how it makes you feel?  #gardenyoga #yogaoutdoors #summeryoga #hugs #heartcentre #loveyourself #kindnessmatters #yoga #hathayogaflow #vinyasa #loveyoga
Oh how I love cake, who doesn’t? Just thought I’d share some inspirational cake baking with all those who follow a restricted diet. I’ve experimented with so many gluten free recipes, but none have turned out as good as this gluten and refined sugar free banana cake. It’s so simple too.  Ingredients
* 3 ripe bananas 2 mashed, 1 thinly sliced length wise
* 100g almond flour
* 25g coconut flour
* 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 3 eggs
* 70g maple syrup or honey
* 45g walnuts or pecans, roughly chopped  Instructions
* Pre-heat oven to 180°C (350°F)
* Line a 9x5 inch loaf tin with parchment paper. 
* In a large bowl stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. 
* In a separate bowl combine the mashed banana, eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla.
* Fold the wet ingredients into the dry until a batter is formed. 
* Fold in the chopped nuts. 
* Transfer the batter to your lined baking tin. Lay the banana slices on top.
* Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
* When the bread is done remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before removing from the tin. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
* Cover and store for up to 4 days (if it lasts that long, no chance in my house!)  #glutenfreefood #glutenfreecake #bananacake #endometriosis #lifestylechange #lifestyle #lifestylechoices #sugarfree #refinedsugarfree #adenomyosisawareness #endowarrior #maplesyrup #lovecake #antiinflammatoryfood #endodiet

Our breath is the most important thing in our lives. Without it we cease to exist, yet many of us aren’t aware of how we breathe and the impact it has on our life. Taking deeper, fuller, nourishing breaths is so important for our health, body and mind. For me it helps with anxiety and to heal pain.  Over the next month I will be posting tips on how to cultivate a breathing practice, starting with breath awareness. You can follow the audio on this post for a few breaths if it helps.  1) Begin by finding a comfortable, quiet space. Either seated or lying down.
2) Close your eyes or perhaps take your gaze down to the ground.
3) Bring your awareness to your breath, notice the rise and fall as you breathe in and out.
4) Try to relax, slow and deepen your breath. How does it make you feel?
5) On your next inhale say to yourself “breathing in I’m aware of my in breath”. As you exhale, “breathing out I’m aware of my out breath”. Repeat 3 or 4 times.
6) Allow your breath to come back to it’s natural rhythm, notice how you feel.  Try to take a few minutes each day to be with your breath. 

All my yoga classes centre around a breath led practice. If you’re looking to learn more I’d love to see you on the mat, either online or for some yoga in the garden (weather permitting).  #thisisyoga #breathe #breath #yoga #inhaleexhale #inhale #exhale #painrelief #anxietyrelief #breatheawareness #pranayama #endowarrior #breathawareness #justbreathe #bepresentnow #bepresent #feelgood
I don’t normally share hair updates, but as it’s our first cut in 8 months here we are! My daughter won the decision to keep the long locks (for now) and ordered curls. Something I haven’t had since my wedding day! Times really are changing...  #girltime #hair #curlsforthegirls #curls #haircut #mummyanddaughter #timeout #havingfun #feelgoodfactor #happybankholiday
If you go down to the woods today... you’re sure to see a carpet of Bluebells! A few days ago I sat amongst them with my daughter. Scenes like these are often hard to capture on camera, so we paused, took in the beautiful sights, the sounds around us and breathed in their scent.  As we transition from lockdown to the new normal I’m noticing a host of emotions, anxiety, reluctance, frustration, indecisiveness, excitement, the list goes on. For me mindfulness and meditation are vital and can be done anywhere, anytime! Perhaps on walks, in the car, whilst cooking and it doesn’t have to be for long.  I came across this mindfullness game recently. It’s great to do with kids too and helps us to focus on the present moment rather than thinking about the past or future and the what ifs!  ‘I Spy’ - answer these questions:

What do you see in front of you?
What can you hear right now?
Breathe in and say out loud what you smell.
What can you taste?
If you’re touching something, what do you feel?  #innature #bluebells #memories #timeout #precioustime #flowers #perspective #timetoheal #relax #mindful #mindfulliving #meditatedaily #meditateanywhere #mentalhealth
Breathwork & Yoga for Endo
Date: Sunday 25 April on ZOOM
Time: 10:30-12noon
Investment: £12 
Suitable for beginners & all levels
A recording is provided if you can’t make the live.  Following the success of last months yoga workshop for @EndometriosisUK, I will be guiding a second gentle online class this Sunday. We will continue to explore breath work and postures that can help calm the nervous system and manage pain.  Endometriosis can pull on and tighten muscles, nerves and ligaments in the pelvis causing inflammation that triggers debilitating pain. We will explore therapeutic postures, breathing exercises and some simple massage techniques to stretch and bring movement that is essential to the healing process.  As an endo warrior I know how painful this disease is and have personally benefitted from the techniques I will be sharing. Sending much love to fellow warriors and to all those who are supporting loved ones who don’t have the condition, you are very welcome to join the class too.  If anyone is struggling financially and would like to attend please DM me.
