Welcome to Katie Yoga, Busselton & Dunsborough

What to expect

Yoga is an uplifting, self-reflective practice that cultivates health and happiness. The word yoga translates to union, and the practice of yoga unites the body and mind through the breath, leading to greater integration of being and clarity of mind.

During a KatieYoga class you will enjoy a flowing combination of asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and dhyana (relaxation/meditation). Each class is designed to help you build strength, flexibility and balance both in the body and in the mind.

Everyone's body is unique and we all come to yoga with different expectations (e.g. to rehabilitate an injury, manage stress or increase mobility). A one size fits all approach is not always appropriate in a yoga class, KatieYoga teachers specialise in customising the practice to meet the needs of the individuals within the group. Feel free to contact us to discuss your needs prior to class.

David Baker

David Baker

After a sporadic yoga practice of over eight years, David committed to a regular yoga practice and felt the dramatic benefits of a consistent practice both physically and mentally. He began teaching in 2014 as a way to help others with their body and their mind.

His love of yoga is complimented by his fascination of the body as an engine. Like any machinery if one part is doing all the work it wears at a faster rate. Similarly, is one part is under used, when suddenly called upon, it my no longer be up to task and end in breakage. The principles of body mechanics, and his love of yoga and meditation are what David brings to each class as an teacher.

Testimonials

"When I leave Katie's yoga class I always feel grateful that I took time for myself to come as after class I feel focused, relaxed and more energised. Katie's class makes me feel happier and confident in myself. I feel safe and comfortable enough in class to try anything. It’s great to be able to incorporate this into my everyday life, it has made a huge difference. Katie never fails to surprise me, even after doing yoga for nearly five years, she always seem to bring new and exciting challenges to the class whether it is physical or mental. This inspires my own practice as it reminds me that there is so much more to learn and it makes me want to keep coming back. Katie is a truly encouraging teacher and her positive attitude and enthusiasm towards yoga sets a great example to us all, I feel comfortable to ask her anything and not only has she taught me a great deal about yoga, but about myself as well and for that I feel thankful to have her in my life." - Jessica

"I started my yoga practice as a natural way to relieve my anxiety and panic attacks. Katie has always been very supportive of this and has helped me greatly with overcoming my anxiety and I am now able to be with my thoughts and feel relaxed and at peace. I also suffer from lower back problems and I am unable to perform backbends. Katie has taught me how to modify my practice to suit, she always ensures in class that I do not miss out and will make changes for me." - June
