Hello! I'm Katie. I am a friendly, ocean-loving human who counts her lucky stars to be able to share two of her favourite things, yoga and mindfulness, with others in Newquay and around Cornwall. Yoga and mindfulness have helped me through many challenging times and I feel so grateful to have these practices in my life.
I am originally from Yorkshire, and moved to Newquay five years ago after travelling the world in search of snowy slopes and surf. My other favourite things include cold water swims, surfing, days on the beach with my partner Ben and two step sons and dancing at festivals.

2019 - 2022: Masters Degree in Teaching Mindfulness at Bangor University
I am currently studying a masters degree in Mindfulness-Based Approaches to Wellbeing specialising in Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses. Through the masters I am training to teach the evidence-based eight week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course (MBSR) which has been clinically proven to help skilfully cope with a range of mental and physical stressors, such as anxiety disorders, chronic pain, fibromyalgia etc.
I began practicing mindfulness in 2014 to help me navigate a period of very low mood in my own life. Since then this simple yet profound practice has brought more richness and wisdom to my life than I ever could have imagined.
It's my heartfelt wish to share the teachings and wisdom of mindfulness with others through the Mindfulness-Based Courses I am training to teach.
