It helped me to heal, learn to live in the present moment and appreciate everything life has to offer and now I love to share the message of the wonders of Yoga with others through my teachings”.
Kirsty – Yoga Teacher
Kirsty is a mom of two, a wife and a dog mom! She’s been practising yoga for over six years and has been teaching for five years. Kirsty’s love for yoga came after going to classes weekly for exercise and enjoying the challenge and stretch the postures gave. After a while she noticed other benefits including being calmer, less stressed, less anxious. Kirsty says, “I just felt stronger, like I was becoming more ‘me’. This was also impacting on my family life. Because I started to feel better, they started to feel better and the stress levels in the house started to decrease.”
Kirsty enjoys practising vinyasa flow and hatha yoga herself, although enjoys teaching a wide range of styles. She enjoys teaching beginners and loves to see the way yoga unfolds for people as they move through their yoga journey. Kirsty also teaches kids yoga and says, “Kids give their all with far less inhibitions than us adults which always makes for lots of fun and laughter, and in fact, they teach me a thing or two.”
Kirsty aims to make people feel comfortable with what their bodies are capable of, both in every day life and their yoga practice. Kirsty explains, “Each time will be different and that’s ok. Just allowing time for ourselves to do what we need for a stronger body, calmer mind and a deeper connection to ourselves allows you to recharge your battery so you are ready to go back off the mat, into life, ready to share that energy back out again.”
