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.
“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.”

“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.”
