Gayatri Yoga UK by Kate Jones

Some of you may have met Kate Jones, our own Yogini, at Carters already and you’ll know what a dedicated and wonderful yoga teacher she is……Kate has just set off for 6 weeks in India, assisting in the Yoga centre where she herself was a student. Read more about her story below..

As a former dancer Kate has been a student of Yoga for over 30 years.

Now a Yogini (female Yogi) Kate studied Yoga in India and has attended classes in Pune, Mumbai, South Goa, Kerala and trained to become a Teacher in the original Gurukul style of learning in Khajuraho North India with the profoundly inspirational Guru ‘Yogi Ram’ of the Arhanta International School of Yoga.

In light of this Kate is fully certified to teach Classical Hatha Yoga Internationally and holds the Registered Yoga Teacher Identity Card.

Kate’s own daily practice consist of Meditation, Asana and Pranayama and not only keeps her in good physical shape but to which she credits Yoga giving her a conscious guide to navigate the challenges of daily life.

Most recently Kate has been invited to return to India to the Arhanta School of Yoga to assist in the running of the Teacher Training course’ which she first attended herself to become a Classical Hatha Yoga Teacher.  She will be jetting off to Delhi on September the 28th and travelling back to the Ashram in Bansari village in Khajaraho.  This is an excellent opportunity for Kate to deepen her Teaching skills and to further develop her own knowledge of the philosophy of Yoga.


Namaste .“I am both honoured and thrilled to have been offered this opportunity, oh and I am going to throw in, completely excited too!  Spiritually I always knew that one day I would return to the Ashram in Banasri Village.  I would like to thank everyone at Carter Leisure and very much thank all the students who have supported me in my Teaching so far.   I look forward to sharing my experience, new learnings and seeing you on your own Yoga mat when I get back in November”.My Yoga mat is my best friend!.Om Shanti Kate.

Yoga really can be life changing and I would like to encourage everyone no matter how inflexible or extensile you are, just take some time for yourself to check in with your body, relax, release and rejuvenate.

Kate holds regular classes at Carters  – she’s back from India at the beginning of November and her classes will re start on 7th November. For session times see the Carter Leisure website.
