    "I have been taking Kate's yoga classes for the past couple of years and I can really recommend her classes for any level. Classes are fun and very welcoming. Kate is both attentive to individual needs, but encouraging to all. The yoga Lake District weekends and Italy holiday breaks offered are fantastic and offer great classes coupled with relaxing, de-stressing and sociable down time like walking and fizz sipping! Kate's yoga is both inspiring and de-stressing helping you to improve your fitness, energy levels and focus on what's important in your life. Thank you for the great yoga, Kate!"

    "Kate is an extremely professional, knowledgeable yoga instructor as well as a friendly, down to earth, caring person. Her classes are very welcoming and students of all abilities would enjoy and benefit from her classes. We are always encouraged to work with and respect our bodies. Her classes often follow a theme and end with a quote during relaxation which I love! I always feel extremely nurtured in Kate's class, she always takes time to talk to her students and get to know them. I would recommend her classes to everyone!"

    "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 fabulous! 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."

    "Kate is very down to earth and 'normal' unlike some very serious/dull yoga teachers I've had in the past. She is very accommodating and remembers peoples abilities/injuries and offers personalized options to ensure everyone gets the most out of their session."
