Love 
From Our Students  

The course was a perfect mix between theory, philosophy, group, interaction and yin practice. The environment is wonderful and Kate is a very knowledgeable teacher. I found Kate the perfect balance of calm, knowledge, experience and vitality. Her energy made the week inclusive and very enjoyable. I learnt so much during the week and feel very confident in teaching yin yoga and being able to explains its origins and the benefits of practice. It was a thoroughly enjoyable week and I wouldn't hesitate to train with Kate again in the future. Kate is so engaging and easy to follow. I will be staying in touch with Kate and the group for sure!
MICHELLE MADDEN, UK
Simply the best!This is how I would describe the lovely yoga teacher Kate Finn. Full of empathy, gentle, fun, approachable yet utterly professional. She is capable of creating and holding an incredible space to practice in. This very spiritual teacher will lead you into bliss either by a wonderfully juicy Vinyasa or an exquisite Yin Yoga class. And believe me, as a former dance teacher, my standards are really high when it comes to teaching any kind of movement; especially when it is something as powerful and multilayered as yoga.
