I am really pleased with the experience I have had practising yoga with Kat. 

My balance and flexibility have improved. My back flare-ups have lessened and are easier to deal with. 

Kat has helped me understand and adjust to improve and even cured a bout of Vertigo after having her class.

I enjoy all of the classes I attend and strive to do better and this is after coming for two years. 

Thank you for the fantastic job you do.

ABOUT KAT WATERS

Kat has been involved in dance and sport from an early age, completing a BA (Hons) in Dance Theatre at the Laban Centre, London in 2000

Introduced to yoga in a gym to supplement her dance training, formal study began much later with Jana Appleyard in London in 2006. Fortunate to be an apprentice of Jana’s, studying and practicing the Shadow Yoga method (created by Shandor Remete) for five years.

Learning and studying yoga ran alongside her career in sales, events management and project management. Delivering late scale projects for the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games and the inaugural 2015 European Games, Baku, Azerbaijan. 

After taking a career break in 2013 on Gili Trawangan, Indonesia, as a PADI

Diving Instructor, yoga teacher and enjoying free-diving, Kat was drawn back to Indonesia where she completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Bali in 2015 with Zuna Yoga®. In 2016, Kat returned to her home town of Southsea, Portsmouth and started teaching full time. 

 

In addition to her Yoga Teacher Training, Kat is one of three Yoga Tune Up® and the Roll Model Method® practitioners and teachers in the UK, sharing this work to help heal and prevent injury.

 

Teachers who have inspired her and continue to do so include; Jana Appleyard, Shandor Remete, Everett Newell, Katherine Girling, Dineen Viggiano and Jill Miller.

 

Kat strives to share these self-care tools and strategies with everyone to become a more empowered being in this life. To live a happy, healthy, joyful life, to thrive and be a more powerful individual in the world.

 

 

Testimonials

 

“I have been lucky enough to take two courses with Kat in the past six months. I've found them both hugely beneficial and positive. Kat's energy and teaching is joyful and her class is a highlight of the week. The sessions not only helped in improving movement in my very stiff and problematic back and shoulders. But I learnt about breathing and stillness; techniques I now try to use regularly outside of class to destress and address anxiety. I highly recommend Kat's courses and lessons and am looking forward to the next one. Thank you Kat.”

G C. - Worthing Theatres and Museums

 

“Can I just say a huge thank you for the yoga so far, I am absolutely loving it and it's doing wonders for my mental health which was pretty poor this time last month. I'm feeling much more energised, have more routine to my day, feel positive and look forward to yoga every day! So thank you so much, you and your classes are fantastic. I am really looking forward to learning more.”

Kat has really changed my relationship with my body (for the better!) - I'm hypermobile and I have always been able to dump my body into postures, but working with Kat has taught me how to use yoga as more than just a stretch. Through my practice with Kat, I have built core strength and stability and more importantly an understanding of my anatomy and the ability to identify when I am stretching into a "dangerzone". 

I cannot recommend Kat's classes and workshops highly enough.

“Kat is a great facilitator of learning. She provides a container/framework of the subject and, at the same time, allows space for questions, self-enquiry & embodiment of the work. Kat's language of anatomy is always accessible. She has great skill in isolating ‘parts’ and then looking at the body as an integrated ‘whole’. I have come away with a more comprehensive knowledge of the nervous system, fascia, the diaphragm and vagus nerve, and how I can utilise the ‘Roll Method’ in my own yoga and self-care practice. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kat’s teaching. She is very open, caring, knowledgable, passionate, inclusive and always on the right side of playful, her classes are always fun!”

Kat’s teachings are a recent discovery for me, but I had heard good things so wanted to see whether her approach might be something that could help me. Her emphasis on functional movement and understanding how breath and movement go hand in hand have done absolute wonders - I’ve had worsening hip pain for about the last 8 years and in one single class she unlocked something that’s pretty much eliminated the issue. This gives me real confidence that in time I might be able to improve my strength, be able to move more fluidly, and address some of the other side effects of long term physical discomfort. I’d recommend Kat’s classes to anyone - she’s an absolute magician!
