Cranleigh House Yoga Teachers:

Katherine Armitage is a Sivananda & Kundalini Yoga trained teacher. 

I attended the Sivananda Yoga Centre in Putney, London for many years. I have also been a student of the teachings of Dr George King, Western Master of Yoga, since 1992. I have been teaching Yoga since January 2004. I practice some form of Yoga daily and I teach a range of abilities from beginners to intermediate, from very flexible people to people with physical restrictions, chronic illnesses and elderly people. I love Yoga & its transformational power! I really enjoy working with people and seeing them reaching  their full potential. In 2012 I trained as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan. These two types of yoga complement each other really well.

Cranleigh House Visiting Yoga Teachers 

yoga, devon, UK, yoga healing, cleanse, vegetarian, vegan    I began my serious pursuit of yoga during a particularly tough year of university. My health was failing and I was suffering from classwork anxiety and the "I'm almost finished with school, now what do I do with my life?" depression. Not so unlike most senior students, I suppose. I had taken a semester of yoga in university and I remembered the light sensation of peace and safety I'd experienced whislt focused on my mat. I wanted to transform that elusive feeling into a state of being, so I joined a yoga studio and invested in some stretchy pants.

I can honestly say that is was yoga that restored my health and peace of mind. I learned to view myself through a new lens - a clear lens without judgement or unrealistic expectations.

After a year of regular practice, I happily realized that my health was far better than it had ever been. I decided that I wanted to be able to share this route to health and peace of mind, so I enrolled in a teacher-training coure in Spain through After three and a half weeks of brutally intensive yoga training, I achieved my 200-hour certificate to teach Yoga Vinyasa. 

yoga, yoga retreat, UK, Devon, B&B, vegetarian, vegan, cleanse, detoxI spent one year teaching privately in Europe and Africa. Upon returning to my hometown in Colorado, I found work teaching at Colorado Mesa University, Yoga West Collective, and privately in homes throughout my valley. I can offer restorative classes for beginners or for those who just need to release and relax. In these classes, expect to move steadily, slowly and mindfully, to experience deep opening and mindful breathing.

I can offer vigorous flow classes for those who need to break free from lethargy and feel the joy of movement. In these classes, expect to move fluidly, develop muscle strenght, cardio endurace and really play your edge. I can also offer basic partner yoga for those who want to connect with another human being in a compassionate and communicative way while exploring a new level of depth in their own practice.

To discover the connectiones between breath and thought; between breath and movement; to develop flexibility, strength and balance. To eliminate the stress engendered by constantly dwelling on the future, the stagnancy and regret by constantly dwelling on the past, and find a means to enjoy the fullness of the present.
