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.

Is anyone finding it hard to sleep? With all the u 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.

Oh to feel this expanse of water after two months Oh to feel this expanse of water after two months in lockdown! I’ve been craving this sensation for so long and it didn’t disappoint. Water nourishes the body and connecting to your body’s water element through yoga allows you to strengthen and relax your hips, release tension, and increase flexibility. The water element is associated with the second chakra in your body, located in your pelvis. It’s connected to emotions, passion, pleasure, creativity and fluidity. When balanced, you’re able to connect easily to others, feel content and calm, let things go and express creativity. Join me for a water element based flow tomorrow morning at 9:30am.
