About Us

Acroyoga and Partner Yoga 

yoga for couples and friends - try out our courses!

"For her birthday I bought my girlfriend a series of private partner yoga classes with Cat, for the two of us to do together. We'd been looking for classes for a long time and trying to find the right teacher with the right style for us, Cat was perfect. As well as being a great teacher and extremely capable practitioner who instils trust straight away, Cat is also down-to-earth, unpretentious and fun - which can be hard to find in a yoga teacher!"

What is Acroyoga?

Acroyoga is an inspiring, challenging and fun practice that combines the practice of yoga with partner acrobatics and the healing arts of thai yoga massage.  Learn to base or fly and have the option to mix up the roles too! Acroyoga builds confidence in all areas of life to be more present, courageous and see the playful side of life. Sessions are all about safety too and one of the main principles is spotting and communicating and one of the main guidelines of the practice is "If is feels good, it is good". Try something unique and inspire eachother!

What is Partner Yoga?

Partner yoga is where you do yoga in pairs, supporting one another in a stretch or doing a yoga flow with your breath and your bodies synchronised.  Partner yoga flows can be fun and hardcore to build your core strength or slow and sensually relaxing to connect and drop into a deeply meditative state together.  Whatever your preference, Cat can cater for you and all abilities and fitness levels. 

What is Thai Yoga Massage?  

Thai Yoga Massage is colloquially called lazy man's yoga for a reason! You can deeply relax and unwind and have the yoga be done to you! Learn massage techniques and feel what it's like to have a luscious massage routine to do on one another in this session. This session gives you a sequence each that you can take home and do on one another when you feel stressed or need to relax, creating more peace, and nourishment day to day. 

 Cat was able to cater for everything we asked for! I'm convinced every çouple should do partner yoga! Apart from being the best way to stretch and release tension in yourself and each other - it's an amazing way of connecting as a couple. Forget couple's therapy and all that talking - just do partner yoga with Cat and get physical!"

What if my partner has never done yoga?

No worries! Partner yoga suits all levels! If your partner is less fit, flexible or less confident part of the joy of it is that there are poses and flows to suit all levels, so we'll find the right ones that suit you both without anyone being embarrassed. 

Watch your relationship grow and deepen in profound and inspiring ways with partner yoga.  Or simply learn some partner yoga and acroyoga sequences for fun together that are accessible to all fitness levels.

Cultivate unconditional love together and explore deeper awareness through breathwork, fluid flows and tantric practices that will awaken your spark and your fire together. Learn these skills in the safety of a guided session and then take them home to practice them in the privacy of your own home. 

Partner practices bring out the best in you, as you learn the technical skills to give and receive openly and freely and having fun in the process! It is the ultimate balancer and it is the gift that keeps on giving.
