Intermediate Yoga
with Kathryn Varley

Intermediate Yoga  may be better understood after after a couple of years of regular practice, or experience over extended periods of immersion, such as Workshops Immersives  or Retreats or for those who favour a regular home yoga practice and wish to refine their yoga. 

In her approach, Kathryn shares years of experience as a “shared-enquiry”, a way of co-teaching where she offers invitations for yoga explorations and welcomes interaction via feedback.  This informs a deeper sense of personal enquiry for learning and embodying practices via the senses giving direct access to the central nervous system, which is never the same on any given day.  


Sessions begin with a thoughtful introduction to the theme for the class accompanied by a short meditation.  Rather than learning rules and techniques, each class is focused on a foundational principle that can be used as a springboard for almost limitless application.  All classes are gently experiential, powerfully stimulating as well as radically restful and relaxing.


Theses may include forms such of Compassionate Yoga such as  Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and therapeutic yoga with  Somatics for specific conditions.  Within the structure of what is offered, Kathryn demonstrates progressive points of entry, enabling students to make intelligent choices.  This serves to honour the body, its level of conditioning and your personal individual structure as well as how you may be  feeling on any given day.


Students often report dramatic shifts in frame of mind, and their experience of reduced pain in the body, increased agility, mobility, balance and range of movement as well as a renewed sense of pleasure in moving and in being alive.  See Testimonials at the bottom of each page for more insight.
