We'll ease ourselves in with a cup of tea and some introductions. I'll share my experience of the Olympic Games, including showing some personal behind-the-scenes photos, and talk about what life is like as a full-time elite athlete. We'll then flow through a creative hatha yoga class, suitable for any level of yogi- whether you're a complete novice or a regular on the mat. My goal is that you find something that feels good for you and finish feeling better than when you started!! To finish, I'll answer any questions you might have, from training and fitness to what it's like to sit on the start-line of an Olympic final to life in the Olympic Village. I’m trained and fully-qualified to teach hatha, vinyasa, or yin/restorative yoga, so if you're booking a private class, the style of yoga can be very much dictated by you, your needs and what you're feeling that day. This Experience is great for team-building. Looking to reconnect with your colleagues and teammates while working from home? Send me a message.
I'm Kate, an Olympic champion, two-time Olympian at the London and Rio Games, and a fully qualified yoga teacher. In addition to my Olympic achievements, I’m also a multiple World and European medallist, and have broken several world record times. Since retiring from rowing one year ago, I've been sharing my passion for sport through coaching and mentoring younger athletes, and have also worked with numerous businesses and universities, providing talks and insight on performance psychology and the lessons I've learned. I started practicing yoga 12 years ago and loved having some time to chill out amid my full-time rowing training. I now teach several group classes a week and love that I get to meet people and help students to move their bodies and find something that feels good for them.

If you already have a yoga kit, that's great—bring everything you have! If not, I'd suggest a mat (o…
"The great thing about virtual yoga is you can practice from wherever you are in the world. Just find a comfortable space you like where you have room to move. I’ll be joining you from my home in Reading, England."
