There can be a lot of fear around entering a yoga class. I felt it myself when I was first starting my yoga journey.  This course is designed to teach you the basics and build up your confidence to enter any yoga class.  If there is a chance you will miss a session, don't worry, you won't be left behind.  Everything learned each week gets reviewed the following week. 
Contact me with any questions or to book. 

Course held at the Kingston Park Community Centre.
Invest in yourself, £45 for 6 week course.

This course needs to be booked in advanced so please get in touch. 


"Beginner Course was fantastic!  Can already feel a change.  Looking forward to the next class."  S. Murphy


"I've just finished first ever beginner course and absolutely loved every minute of it.  I've learnt how to relax, and how to connect to my body along with great yoga techniques.  Feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, I can't wait to get myself back next week" K. Liddell


"I've just completed the beginner course.  What an amazing experience, full of lovely people.  Kate, the teacher, is wonderful and so experienced in what she does, making the transition into yoga a smooth, fun and tranquil journey.  Thank you! " C. King


I tried the beginners course with Kate as I hadn’t done any yoga for about 4 years & was recovering from a lower back injury so wasn’t sure how much I could do. Kate’s class is really welcoming & a fantastic mix of people all genders, ages, shapes and sizes. Kate encourages you to work within what is available to you, so you don’t feel under pressure to push too hard or beyond your capabilities. I’d highly recommend Kate’s classes - wish I’d started again sooner!" C.  MacDuff


I've been to various Yoga classes over the past 10 years or so but after moving house last year I was looking for a class that would give a good challenge and variety. Kate's classes are just FAB! She is very attentive to different peoples levels and is a lovely, warm and friendly teacher too. I would thoroughly recommend Kaleidoscope Yoga to anyone wishing to give yoga a try or who wants to improve their practice."  A. Llewellyn


Yoga Etiquette:

Never been to a yoga class?  Here are some things to know.

    Do your best to arrive early for class: 
  • Especially if it's your first class! I really like to welcome new students and it's important we can have a chat about any problem areas or health conditions.
  • If you do arrive a bit late, don't worry! It's totally fine, you made it, so great :) If I'm talking maybe just wait quietly by the door until I motion you to come in.  

    What to bring:  

  • Bring a yoga mat, warm clothing for relaxation and water.
  • Having a blanket is very useful to keep you warm during relaxation and can also be used as a prop.
  • Props can make a huge difference to your practice and can be purchased on various websites.  Some helpful props are belts, blocks, bolsters and an eye bag for relaxation.
  • Wear comfortable exercise clothing

   Before class:

  • Remove your shoes and socks, yoga is done with bare feet.
  • Please make sure your mobile phone is shut off or on silent.
  • Try not to eat a large meal prior to class.
  • If you have a health condition or injury please tell me!

   During:  

  • Ask questions!  Feel free to ask a question during practice or if you would prefer speak to me before or after class about anything that wasn't clear.
  • Let go of the competitive mind set.  Be kind and loving towards yourself. 
  • Do what you can, with what you have, with where you are.  Practice your yoga.
   After:  

  • Observe how your mind and body feel.  Hopefully in time you will begin to take the bliss you find on your mat into your everyday life.
