"Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul, create the symphony of life"

About Catherine Pilgrim


  

Catherine Pilgrim, IPTI Dip BWY ITEC IKC

I have been practising Yoga for several years, studying styles that include Hatha yoga through the British Wheel, Dru, Iyengar, Yin and Chi Kung. I aim to integrate elements of each of these  styles into my teaching to create flowing, fun and energetic classes, that are accessible to all levels.

I initially began Yoga practise in order to develop strength and flexibility, but I soon realised that regular practice leads to so many other positive benefits.

Yoga was developed from the belief that in order to be in balance with ones environment and the self, one has to integrate the body, mind and spirit.  This is achieved in yoga by integrating emotion, action and intelligence in the form of breathing, exercise and meditation, bringing about many benefits. 

I also practise various forms of alternative therapies such as Kinesiology, and having trained as a Chef in the 80's have strong interests in vegetarian/vegan  cooking and food to improve health.  I incorporate all of these skills into my Seasonal Yoga Workshops.

I am a British Wheel of Yoga teacher. The BWY is recognised by Sport England as the governering body of Yoga in Great Britain.
