Founded by local yoga teacher and wellness lover, Kate Kirrane, Seed Yoga offers Vinyasa Flow & Restorative yoga across Beaconsfield & Penn.
Based on inspired, flowing, meditative sequences, Kate’s classes aim to work your body, calm your mind and soothe your soul.
“I am passionate about making yoga accessible to as many people as possible and i run weekly mixed classes as well as specialist classes for women only (menopause), men only and local businesses.”
What Is Vinyasa Flow Yoga?
Derived from the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit, Vinyasa means “arranging something in a specific way’. In a Vinyasa class, we synchronise postures (asana) with breath (pranayama), flowing from pose to pose, and thus inducing a state of meditation (dhyana).
Due to its more dynamic nature, Vinyasa Flow Yoga provides a good full-body workout, freeing up the flow of energy and promoting a sense of calm, balance and ease within body and mind. Kate weaves in restorative yoga also to ensure her students leave feeling calm, restored and rejuvenated.
How can yoga benefit me?
Yoga helps to cultivate strength, flexibility and balance both mentally and physically – a great antidote to our modern-day, frenetic, digitally-induced lives.
The beauty of yoga is that it really is for everybody, regardless of age, gender, race, size, shape, fitness ability and level of flexibility.
Whether you are a total beginner or a seasoned pro, just taking time out to breathe and reconnect will help you feel better about yourself and the world around you.
Further health benefits
While yoga provides a great way to shape up, this beautiful, sacred discipline induces a deeper sense of peace, balance and resilience both on and off the mat, helping us to achieve more connection and awareness in our bodies and our lives.
It can also aid health complaints such as back pain, digestive issues, anxiety / depression, insomnia, high blood pressure and much more.
Today, as well as offering my usual mixed classes for all abilities, I specialise in men’s yoga and menopause yoga.
I am passionate about making yoga accessible to men. As their physiology works so differently to women, from posture / how they hold their bodies to the way they move, their range of mobility and flexibility etc, attending a men-only yoga class means it is more prescriptive to their specific needs. I am also focussing on providing wellness information to my male students, covering different aspects of men’s health, helping to inform and inspire them regarding their own physical health and mental wellbeing.
As a 50-something woman myself, i understand the challenges that this time of life can present from both personal experience and also those around me. The aim of this class is to provide a supportive, safe space for women to move and breathe together, share their own experiences and find community with others.
Kate offers weekly classes in Beaconsfield and Penn. She also offers 1:1’s and smaller group sessions.
