Cath teaches the Iyengar yoga method in a small and friendly beginners class where students are carefully guided through a wide range of introductory poses. These poses increase flexibility, strength and stamina, besides having many other benefits.
Cath’s considerable experience both as a teacher and as a student herself means that she encourages her students to progress at their own rate and to challenge themselves whilst working within their physical limitations. Cath is calm, patient and attentive to individual requirements, modifying poses for people with injuries etc. Her classes are light-hearted, at the same time she honours the respected values of yoga.
Warning: This class may seriously benefit your health!
- “Cath is not only thoroughly professional but also very considerate and manages to make classes fun through her light sense of humour. I’m an old rugby player who came to yoga (and stretching) so late in life that I could not touch my toes; Cath has helped me progress at my own rate and made me comfortable in a class of more flexible students.”
About your teacher

She has been teaching since 2003 and is a certified IYENGAR® Yoga teacher qualified to Intermediate Junior Level 3.
She studies regularly with some of the most senior teachers in the UK and worldwide, recently being taught by Geeta Iyengar in Pune, India.
