Yin Yoga Two Day Urban Retreat exploring four emotions of the body through four muscle groups: Fear, Guilt, Shame & Anger.

Traditional Chinese Medicine, Daoism, Vendatism, Ayurveda, Shamanism, Buddhism & modern psychological inquiry all share a common consciousness that unsurfaced or explored emotion will in time create subtle restrictions or blockage to the smooth flow of energy/qi/prana within us. These energetic and emotional tumours can be dormant within us for years, only surfacing at times of great stress or uncertainty. However their unconscious presence has a powerful affect on the choices we make, our wellbeing and the quality of life we engage in. By awakening ourselves to an insightfull practice that helps to develops safe and conscious inquiry, we can begin to feel the physical, emotional, mental and interpersonal connection inside empowering us towards optimal and vibrant health.

Using the incredible healing and powerful practice of Yin Yoga we’ll embark on a mandala of the lower body to awaken the emotional grasp these tensions can play on the minds, actions, behavioural patterns & decisions. By releasing and observing these patterns, sensations & feelings, we can help create a life free from emotional restraint and open to a more peaceful, calmer and tranquil experience.

Kate is an International Yin Yoga Teacher Trainer dedicated to safely encouraging yogis to develop safe self inquiry through mindfulness and meditation practice through the body’s movement & stillness.

„Your way of teaching I found very inspiring, making sure of the energy and respect in the class! This, I would like to take over to my work in the physical therapy office. It is great, that you provided so much background theory, and my stage of study is now the Manana; I need to organise the material and learn it.“


Please keep up with teaching great courses like this!“ Dec 2017


„Dear Kate, it’s not easy to put into words what I experienced during this Yin Teacher Training with you. It felt like we were in a loving bubble for a week. Every evening it was hard to „go back to reality“, but with all the great tools you gave us, we were able to take the Yin feeling with us in the outside world. You had such a positive influence on me during this week. You helped me open up and release some hidden emotions and thoughts. You are such an inspiration because you stay true to yourself and you are so open about your own life and struggles. You share so much and that is really beautiful about you. You’re such a shining soul. When you teach or give lectures you are so passionate about what you talk and that is really contagious. I found it really interesting to learn about all the things you covered. You are an amazing teacher. I wish I can attend your next workshops when you come back to Switzerland. This Yin Teacher Training brought me so much more knowledge about Yin Yoga and made me want to keep going deeper into my practice and keep learning about it. I am really grateful I crossed you path and hope we will meet again. A huge thank you for everything Kate !“ Dec 2017

You are just amazing! Great experiences out of yourlife you shared with us that made you so “not perfect” but a person you can relate too.“


Once I use to live in America someone told me That each of us has a superpower –your superpower is INSPIRATION! Thank you so much for the inspiration you gave me, you inspired me to look further into things and I am very interested in more and not just to close the chapter! “ Dec 2017
