Her classes truly nourish your body and mind and the aura of gratefulness and peace Kate exudes is absolutely infectious. Her classes are vibrant, relaxed and most of all … fun! Being part of Kate’s Yoga family is the best gift I have ever given myself.”
“Kate is an inspiration; I love her Yoga classes. I always leave feeling wonderful and connected. Through Yoga I am learning to trust my body and develop self-awareness. Kate has the magic to calm you down. We are blessed to have such a teacher in our community”.
"I have been blessed to be part of Kate’s Yoga sessions. Through her deep knowledge she intuitively guides us through Yoga movements, breathing, and meditation, which accumulates in feeling connected, revived and beautifully transformed.”
Yoga is an ancient art & science with the ultimate aim of providing a path to inner stillness and union.
Yoga reminds us to live in the present moment while experiencing ease in our bodies, mind and spirit.
Our breath feeds into every part of our Yoga practice. It is the lifeforce which brings us home to the present moment.
Yoga is not mechanical physical movements but moving from within; moving with awareness.
Yoga is an ongoing practice which aligns & benefits all aspects of our being; emotional, physical, mental & spiritual.
Thrive in Light’s Yoga is holistic, soulful & uplifting.
There are many interpretations of Yoga. From devotional and service orientated to hot and physical. So where does Thrive in Light fit in the mix?
Our Yoga is essentially Hatha Yoga. ‘Ha’ is sun, ‘tha’ is moon – thus, Hatha is the Yoga of balance. It includes asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), along with deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
This practice is based on Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga. These teachings come from the ancient Yoga Sutras.
Thrive in Light is Kate’s medium for taking Yoga out into the community. The aspects of Yoga that Kate particularly resonate with are:
– Meaningful human connections
– Embracing the divine feminine
– Connecting with nature
– Playfulness and humour
– Inspirational music
– Coming home to our soul
– Our breath
1 on 1 SESSIONS
A personalised journey into your wellbeing awaits. Private Yoga sessions tailored to your needs.
A bespoke and personalised journey into your wellbeing. A private 1:1 Yoga session is tailored to your needs, whether they be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. For some people a 1:1 session allows them to feel safe, present and nurtured without the distraction of other people. For other’s it’s about tailoring movement to particular physical challenges. Other people resonate with spiritual nourishment where breath, meditation and soul guidance are the motivation.
To begin we explore your dosha type (an Ayurvedic system of health), intentions (e.g. is it mainly physical or emotional?), and health position and then create an experience that best serves you.
All sessions will incorporate pranayama (breath awareness), sankalpa (intention setting) and relaxation/meditation.
1:1 session’s can be held in my country home or I can travel to your chosen space.
The 1:1 Yoga session rate is $75 which includes the questionnaire process, planning a programme and a one-hour personal session to guide you. Travel rate is 60 cents per kilometre to come to your home or chosen space.
Contact Kate to book your personalised 1:1 session at firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 033 7626
“Having 1 on 1 Yoga sessions with Kate designed to my needs is a real treat. It gives me a safe space to explore questions that I wouldn't normally in a class situation. From this I have developed the confidence to develop my own home yoga practice. I leave feeling relaxed, whole and very supported by Kate.”
“Thank you for the powerful reminder to be grateful. It is meaningful to connect with you Kate and all you have to share. Your work and energy is beautiful. Lots of love and light to you.”
“Yoga is not a means to get somewhere as if you were not somewhere already. It is your direct & intimate participation in life.”
Deepen your Yoga Journey with a Home Practice
Deepen the benefits of Yoga by creating a daily home practice. There is a saying that I live by, “Discipline is Freedom” meaning that when we commit to a cause that is for our highest good we experience freedom. In other words, while it takes discipline to practice yoga daily, the reward of living with heart and soul gives us freedom and peace.
To support you on your path to establishing a daily home practice, I have soulfully created the ‘I Am Thriving’ Yoga and Affirmation guide. This is your companion in creating an everyday yoga and affirmations practice to inspire a life of wellbeing and fulfillment.

“Women are powerful. Yoga practice raises our awareness of the nature of that power: it reconnects us, & that reconnection enables us to live in freedom, confident of our own potency.”
