What Kat's students say
PRIVATE LESSON TESTIMONIALS
Kat is such a beam of light to be around and possesses so much depth and wisdom that it's impossible to not be moved by her teachings. Coming from a place of softness and strength, Kat is beautifully skilled in creating a safe space to take people to their edges to ultimately help them explore new places within themselves (body, mind and spirit).
When you meet Kat, you’re met with warmth and sincerity—you can sense the person in front of you is genuine and passionate. I was lucky enough to work with Kat in my 200-hour yoga teacher training and workshops. The best decision I’ve made was to deepen my practice and work with Kat one-on-one. My practice was elevated to a level that I could never have even imagined - my experience with yoga has completely changed. My “ah ha” moment feeling the connection between body and mind finally clicked - and so did my energy levels. I’m continually amazed by how Kat is so in tune with exactly what I need. Kat has been and continues to be an inspiration and motivator along my journey; I truly am so grateful.
Kat is extremely knowledgeable, supportive and very approachable! She has a sound understanding of working with injuries and worked with me in private 1:1 lessons to help me modify my yoga practice to cater to my injuries and capabilities. I feel even more blessed to have her continue as my Mentor to continue to help me develop as a Yoga Teacher and to deepen and strengthen my yoga practice, skills and knowledge.
Taking private lessons with Kat took my yoga to the next level! Her private lessons were amazing! I learned loads from the very first session. We got back to the basics and she challenged me to really push myself and find my edge in every pose (in a wonderfully supportive way).Kat has a fantastic energy and enthusiasm for the practice. I was really impressed with her ability to explain poses and ideas, as well as her descriptive cues - I finally understood cues I'd heard for years! I'm so glad I've been able to work with her!
Kat's teachings have had a profound impact on my life, not only is my practice is improving - I have increased my patience, compassion, clarity and purpose in my life. I have taken away so much from Kat's teaching and private lessons on so many levels - in my practice, mind, heart. Thank you for sharing the wisdom of the teaching of yoga & the treasures yoga offers.
It's been an absolute a joy to study yoga with Kat! I have had the pleasure of doing regular private 1:1 lessons with Kat and have attended 3 of her yoga retreats in the last 6 months. I did my very first handstand, wheel, and crow pose under her tutelage. Her knowledge, passion, compassion and love of yoga is ever present in her teaching. I look forward to continuing my yoga journey with Kat - she is an incredible Teacher and Mentor. One always leaves her class richer in knowledge and awareness.
Your words really stuck with me: “It’s not about kicking up to handstand, it’s about who you have to become in the process to get there.” As you were there helping me into a handstand - even if I could only do it for a matter of seconds - I had a real time glimpse of who that person is, and the journey it’s going to take to overcome those obstacles, to let go of fear and to find a true sense of trust in myself and my capabilities. I couldn’t be more grateful that you had enough belief in me. As a result, that has allowed me to believe in myself too.
My teacher, Kat Clayton, has been a significant change agent in my life over the past six months. I completed the 200 hr YTT with her and have continued having private lessons with Kat to deepen my yoga practice.I have learnt more about the intricacies of alignment and how to ensure I look after my body. I have autoimmune issues, so movement and looking after my body and mind is very important for my quality of life. Kat has been an amazing mentor not only helping with my practice but assisting me in deepening my understanding of the philosophy of yoga.
Kat is a truly amazing teacher in every sense of the word – I absolutely love the energy she brings to her classes. Sometimes I want to skip yoga - but I never skip Kat's class! I get a thorough workout and a huge yogi buzz after every one!
The thought, care and consideration you put in to every element of your retreat was incredible and inspiring. A perfect mix of yoga, learning, fun, meditation, beach time, quiet-time, and sunshine! The retreat was very special & created a nurturing environment for connection across so many levels. I loved the yoga classes, meditation, breath work and talks on yoga philosophy. Thank you sincerely for sharing so much with all of us and hosting an amazing week!
It has been the start of a life changing journey for me! I really wanted to meet people who have a similar interest in yoga and to be part of a community. I learned a lot about myself and I also learned a lot from the amazing people I met.In the conversations and sessions we had, something profoundly shifted in me. I learned that I can change my habits and that I can grow stronger - not only physically. And how to make time for myself (and for yoga) in my daily life - this was probably the most important lesson for me to learn.I am so grateful for Kat's wisdom and the encouragement she shared and how welcome she made made me feel. I want to send out a special thanks and a big hug to Kat for being such a bright sunbeam!
Big Shout out to Kat Clayton... Your facilitation on the teacher training team and clearing the path for authentic and powerful teachers is heartfelt. My boyfriend just came home [from your yoga retreat] more clear, calm and more conscious. His light radiated out to those around him with no need of even a word. THIS is everything!! THANK YOU for sharing the love!Namaste xxxx
Kat's ability to facilitate incredible personal and group transformations shows the love, energy and experience she brings to her work. Kat constantly reminds me there is such depth and breadth within yoga. Her teaching is profound and transformational. As her students, we always feel supported, seen, accepted for who we are - not just on the surface, to feel connected, nurtured and empowered, and comfortable in our own skin.
TEACHER TRAINING TESTIMONIALS
Tapping into Kat’s wealth of experience, I have learned so much about posture and alignment and philosophy - which she seamlessly weaves into her classes. Kat has a kind and warm approach to teaching and has a genuine interest in her students progression. As my Mentor throughout my 200 hour teacher training, Kat taught me safe and effective assisting techniques, further developed my teaching skills and ignited my passion for yoga - which has been invaluable to my journey. It has been a privilege to learn under Kat.
Doing my 200 hour teacher training with Kat has made such a huge impact toward my life and future self. I’m so grateful for the effort, compassion and meaningful knowledge Kat shared with us. Thank you for being such an inspirational teacher, taking me on and guiding me through this incredible yoga journey -- I hope to give people what you give one day 🙂
Kat is SO in her dharma! We are all incredibly lucky to have a bit of her light within us. I am going to hold Kat’s words + teachings close to my heart as I continue on the path of yoga, as well as in my career and personal life.
What I love most about Kat is her positive and encouraging energy, her professionalism and her ability to engage and inspire with her yoga teachings and stories. She has helped me and my fellow Teacher Training peers deepen our yoga practice, build our confidence, skills and knowledge to help us on our journey as yogis and blossom into qualified Yoga Teachers.
I am so grateful that Kat guided me through my 200-hour YTT at BodyMindLife. I hold so much of the support and wisdom she shared deep in my heart. If you are yearning for a supportive, safe environment to dive deep into yourself and come out the other side more strong, flexible and empowered in both body and mind, then you won't be disappointed working with Kat. She has so much love, support and guidance to offer you on your lifelong yoga journey.
