I was first introduced to Yoga in 2007 with the idea that it was purely a form of exercise, but it had an instant positive impact on my life. I was taught different styles by various teachers whilsttravelling, and grew more intrigued by the whole experience. I decided in 2010 it was time to take a Hatha teacher's training with Swara Yoga School in Thailand. My continuing fascination with Yoga led me to Yasodhara Ashram and study centre, Canada, where I spent several months studying.

Kathryn started learning about yoga in more depth at ‘Guildford School of Acting' where she was training to become an actress. As an actress, she found yoga helped her stay focused and calm inher mind in an extremely volatile profession. She soon noticed the benefits yoga was bringing her in all aspects of her life, she found she was stronger and more flexible both physically and mentally.
I first got into yoga when a friend took me along to a class she went to. I was absolutely amazed by the lesson; I had been doing Pilates, but this felt so different. I felt like my body wasconnected, yet somehow released. It felt odd, and strange, but also really good! I got hooked on yoga because it makes me feel great - mentally and physically.
At Mark Jarman Yoga we practice a method of yoga that involves a progressively demanding and flowing sequence of postures synchronised to uplifting music. A process that will produce a strong internalheat, ultimately leading to a detoxification of the body. The result is improved circulation, a light, strong, flexible body, and a calm mind.
I like to think that I am a warm friendly and approachable kind of person. So that's exactly the type of Yoga class that I like to teach.

Yoga is more than making shapes. The postures are just one way of working towards the aim of 'settling the mind into silence'. However, along the way in yoga people notice an an increase inflexibility and strength and a welcome moment of calm in these busy stressful times.
Yoga and meditation have been part of my life for more than 30 years, and yet, I still consider myself as a student of Yoga. I feel that I am constantly learning, mostly from the diversity thatstudents bring to the class. Over the years, my teaching has evolved into a more restorative form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional balance and relaxation.
To me Yoga is a never-ending exploration of the body, mind and spirit. It is a path to discover our inner power. By cultivating self awareness we are able to connect to what is happening inside andbecome mindful of the present moment. Private tuition if you need help with physical or health issues or simply cannot get to a class. I create personal programmes to address special needs. Most importantly 1-2-1 sessions offer you an opportunity for some much needed 'me'-time.
