Kathryn has always been drawn to water. A chance telephone call with Dr Françoise Freedman started her journey with Birthlight and the quest for the fluidity of movement on land and in the water through yoga. After the birth of her two children, Kathryn’s interest in yoga was rekindled and specifically, she was interested by how yoga practices could be adapted in water because of the diverse range of movements it allowed in comparison to most forms of swimming or aquatic therapy. With Birthlight, Kathryn began exploring how this could be used to help people either with a fear of water or who required a safe alternative to exercising on land.

Kathryn tutors Birthlight’s Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal Yoga and Aqua Yoga training courses. She specialises in Aqua Yoga Therapy and also uses Aqua Yoga to teach children and adults, especially those with additional needs. Kathryn is certified Zenways Yoga teacher and Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) swimming teacher.
