MEET KATE ASHLEY…

Kate’s love for yoga began as a practice to help manage a downward spiral of mental and emotional health that began in her early teens. It quickly became something that gave her confidence, stability and a rich source of self awareness helping to understand, support and detangle the chain of habits and behaviours that repetitively kept her mind, body and heart caught in a wheel of self destruction. Over 20yrs later and with more than 1000hrs of training and teaching experience, Kate has much to share. Her teaching style is skilful, intelligent, empowering and thoughtful.

As a consistent student to the practice, Kate’s passion for yoga as a life science – a living breathing practice within her is addictive and inspiring. Her dedication to somatic exploration, emotional education and mindful awakening through the physical body is immense and has taken her all over the world training with some of the most insightful teachers of both yin and yang style yoga such as Sebastian Purcelle, Jamie Clarke, Sarah Powers, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Tias Little, Holly Warren, Tabitha Dean, Norman Blair, Max Strom, Ricardo Martin, to name a few. 

Kate teaches 4 levels of 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training and 200hr Yin & Yang offering you the opportunity to explore and awaken the self through physical, energetic, emotional and mental body awareness.Yoga Training is suitable for anyone and beneficial to everyone, its not a case of becoming a ‘teacher’, it’s about learning to be with you and uncover all that you have to offer – coming closer to the self teacher within, to your practice, to your life. Should you wish to share what you experience and teach others, that’s fabulous and you’ll certainly learn how, but its not the sole intention of any yoga teacher training. If you are keen to delve deeper within your practice and uncover what makes you truly unique, this training is for you.

Testimonials 

“Fantastic training, very educational and enjoyable. Kate teaches in a beautiful way that’s both engaging and easy to absorb. I have finished the course with a deep understanding of the philosophy ,anatomy and history of Yin Yoga. Feeling lost without my Yin weekends. Can’t wait for the next module!” Emma Epton

“Kate’s teaching is truly inspiring, and by the end of the course I felt I had all the tools I needed to begin my own journey teaching Yin. I’d recommend Kate without hesitation as her knowledge and passion shine throughout. The course was a perfect balance of study and practice, taught with love and limitless enthusiasm. Her courses would be great no matter what your level or understanding. No matter what your objective, be it to teach, or just develop a deeper understanding of the subject, Kate’s training is for you. Simplicity, patience, compassion.” Steve Berger

“When I first saw this training, I knew deep down it was something I wanted to do through enjoying my own Yin practice so much although did not at the time realise how much more Yin is/means. I loved the small Sangha size- it felt throughout the training a safe place to develop in a nurturing and nourishing way held by Kate. I can see by learning about the philosophies/ theory/ history and practice how Yin connects the body/ mind/ breath / spiritually, mentally and emotionally and how much it can benefit us in a Yang world and I am keen and passionate to pass all my understanding and learning onto others. This course has been an amazing experience for me both personally and professionally, Kate created a training that encompassed compassion, self discovery, connection, lots and lots of knowledge and FUN. Thank you” Claire Zamora
