What is Intermediate Yoga?

Intermediate Yoga  may be better understood after after a couple of years of regular weekly classes with experience over extended periods of time like Workshops Immersives  or Yoga Retreats that span over several days or weeks.  Class is also helpful for those who favour a regular home yoga practice and wish to refine their personal experience and understanding of their own yoga.  Valuable for yoga improvers, post grad teachers and for those considering taking a yoga  teacher training.


Kathryn shares a 40 year personal practice.  As a Yoga Elder she offers the benefit of her in-depth experience as a “shared-enquiry”, a way of co-teaching that 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.  At this level, it is to be expected that student's are already familiar with 'listening' to the queues from their own body and at the same time able to explore a guided invitation offered as a means for further investigation.



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.


The Yoga of Compassion is therapeutic, rehabilitative, restorative and support is given to the neurological system with the addition of  Somatic Movement.  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 speak for themselves.  You will find Testimonials at the bottom of most pages on the site. They 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 a more efficient way of moving, being curious, creative and generally feeling better about their body, mind and life.  More insights below.
