YOGA THERAPY TESTIMONIAL
I happened to meet Kate at my local gym roughly 3 years ago when she was teaching Yoga, I became instantly hooked. When the gym closed down, I was only worried about how I was going to get my weekly Yoga fix.I happened to meet Kate at my local gym roughly 3 years ago when she was teaching Yoga, I became instantly hooked. When the gym closed down, I was only worried about how I was going to get my weekly Yoga fix.
Kate had started her own classes out of Woonona Guide Hall and together with 3 other gym members we followed Kate for our weekly fix of a mix of Hatha and Restorative yoga. It seemed that we all benefited more from the Restorative Yoga sessions.
As time went on, Kate began her regular Restorative classes which are amazing and with her newly acquired qualifications she branched out with private Yoga Therapy. About a year into going to Restorative classes and noticing that I got so much out of the class, I approached Kate about the private Yoga Therapy classes. There was never any pressure from Kate, it was all about my own realisation that I needed to further my practice and my Yoga journey.
The first session, Kate and I discussed my physical issues with my kidneys, back, knees and balance and also my anxiety issues. From this thorough assessment, Kate devised my personalised daily Yoga plan. Kate was very patient with me and I never felt rushed, it was such a pleasure to have a professional healer listen to me and come up with a holistic plan. The second and third sessions Kate reassessed and built on my personal plan so that it worked in with my life and she incorporated an evening practice and a Sankalpa.
I credit Kate and my Yoga practice with bringing me back to life, my mental health has never been this good. I now live positively, in the present moment and when I feel anxiety rearing its ugly head, I use the breath work and Sankalpa that Kate added into my plan. My partner said that I sing and dance more, that I’m back to the old me. I feel more centred and grounded and I haven't fallen over since I have been practicing my yoga plan. My kidney function has improved and my back and knee issues are well managed.
Continued practice mixed with Kate’s Restorative classes have opened up many possibilities for me, I relax so much that I see healing colours during poses.
Thank you Kate for helping me realise my potential.

YOGA THERAPY TESTIMONIAL
I was fortunate enough to see Kate for some private yoga therapy after coming to her public class on restorative yoga.
I found Kate to be knowledgeable, kind, and incredibly invested in the wellbeing of her clients.
Kate gave me a simple, yet effective program, so that rather than being overloaded, I would be able to easily incorporate yoga as part of my daily activities. Even for someone with restricted flexibility like me, Kate was still able to provide an effective program. So even if you can’t tie yourself up in knots, don’t think yoga can’t help you.
Overall, Kate is a great teacher, and is able to distil her experience into simple but effective programs for all kinds of different people.

YOGA THERAPY CLIENT CASE STUDY
Kate Mitchell Yoga ~ case study of private Yoga Therapy client
This client came to me for help with Anxiety, stress, stress related tension and Chronic Thoracic back pain. I saw her for three sessions over a period of seven and a half weeks. She was in quite a bit of pain in her back, very stiff, stressed and suffers from Anxiety. She was really ready to make changes in her life and was very proactive when taking steps to manage her health. She was pretty new to Yoga and had never tried Yoga Therapy before. We made a great team and really worked closely to build the right daily Yoga practice for her. She put in a huge amount of effort and consistently did the home practice I created for her and has seen so many benefits from this practice, some of which are listed below. She also gained a lot of benefit from the personalised Yoga Nidra relaxation recording I made her and told me her pain stopped during the practice. It also helped with stress relief. She is continuing with the practice and still gaining benefit from it.
The changes she reported & I noticed were
She has less headaches
Less thoracic back pain
No pain when listening to the Yoga Nidra relaxation I recorded
She was lighter, smiling more, more relaxed
Less stiff throughout her body especially in her upper body and her legs
Her weight is distributed more evenly in her feet across the big toe, little toe & heel and she isn’t rolling into her arches anymore
She is more aware of her physical stance
Making different postural decisions to aid health
Stopping work and doing yoga if she is stiff or sore during the day
Changed jobs because of stress and felt empowered doing so instead of worrying about others reaction to this
Making healthier decisions for her instead of worrying about others
Letting things go, less worrying especially about the future, less anxious
All in 7.5 weeks!
