awakening, seeing into one's true nature
MY JOURNEY TO YOGA...
Kirsty is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) with Yoga Alliance and trained through Tribe International Yoga School. Kirsty started her journey into Yoga when life became tough and she needed to find herself, gain balance and direction to her life. Many turn to yoga initially for the asana practice - the physical postures to become more flexible and fit. Kirsty turned to yoga for the stillness, the calm, the breath (pranayama) and the wellness. This soon fuelled a drive to explore and play with the movements, challenge herself and gain that breath to body connection. Realising Yoga was more than just a practice, Kirsty integrated Yoga into her everyday life, off the mat as well as on the mat and soon realised that Yoga is a continuous journey of self enquiry that she feels everyone should have the opportunity to explore.
BENEFITS OF YOGA
If you have ever been curious about Yoga, there are many ways to allow it to become part of your life.
Yoga is beneficial on a number of levels. It is an ancient practice dating back to pre-vedic times and has been customed to the western world in many styles.
Yoga can bring increased flexibility, tone and aid weight loss. But more importantly Yoga can help balance the body and mind. Studies have proven Yoga helps relieve anxiety, stress and depression. Simply becoming aware of our breath has a huge positive impact in our day to day lives, it can help to manage stress in a mindful and simple way.
Yoga is now being suggested to patients through the NHS for management of a number of conditions and Yoga as therapy is becoming ever popular.
It's a passion of Kirsty's to share this practice with people and to do so with sensitivity and awareness allowing you to take what you need and deveop and empower your own personal Yoga journey.
YOUR YOGA EXPERIENCE
Yoga should be accessible for everyone, adults, children, parents, and the elderly. A variety of class styles are available to join, or if classes aren't for you, maybe a one-one? Bring wellbeing to the workplace, team building, small groups, and special events. Details can be found below on the full class schedule, different styles of classes on offer to you and their locations.
Kirsty teaches different styles of yoga in different classes, from beginners yoga, to a lovely strong vinyasa flow or if you just want to slow your practise down and regain that breath to body connection. Kirsty's classes are available to all ablities. Please get in touch with any questions.
Weekly Parent & Child Classes are a lovely way to spend time with your child, supporting each other through poses, fun games, whilst also keeping it to a traditional practise allowing children to really understand what Yoga is all about.
Kirsty also teaches in Schools around Powys and Shropshire for Early Years, KS1 and KS2.

Parent & Child Class
After not long having my little girl I was introduced to Satori Yoga by my son who was enjoying Kirsty's yoga classes so much at school, he wanted to do the parent/child class and share the experience. I'm so glad he did! Fantastic valuable time with my boy and brilliant for body/mind/soul, great fun, great people, great atmosphere and fantastic instructor. We now have our own yoga mats so we can practice at home too. Can't recommened highly enough!
Just did one of Kirsty's online classes and it was brilliant - just what I needed! Very effective and clear guidance, lots of encouragement and positive motivation throughout. Loved trying a new pose I've never tried before, with lots of options and variations for all levels. Thank you Kirsty
A very relaxed class, can be challenging but also rewarding getting into a good variety of postures. Kirsty is an excellent teacher and always checks if we are correctly positioned. Always feel better after a Satori Yoga class!
