The Exeter yoga community

Katy Gaulton

I have practiced yoga for the last 10 years, attending regular lessons once a week and I loved them. Then in 2010 life got very stressful and my weekly yoga class was the only thing that I found helped me manage my stress and gave me some peace in what seemed like a chaotic world at the time. It was during a yoga class that I had an epiphany and realised that if yoga was helping my mind and body so much then I’d love to be able to help other people discover the benefits of this ancient tradition by becoming a yoga teacher myself.

My yoga empowered me to change my life, follow my heart, quit my job and head off to the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta ashram to follow my dream of becoming a yoga teacher. The course was very intensive but I left the ashram feeling the strongest, most positive and relaxed I’d ever felt in my entire life. And then I was so happy I could start spreading the joy and power of yoga to others.   

I have experienced first-hand how yoga can transform lives through the simple and natural system that keeps your mind and body strong by following the principals of: proper exercise (Asanas), proper breathing (Pranayama), proper relaxation (Savasana), proper diet and positive thinking and meditation. I believe it’s only when we start to do these practices that we can abide in our own nature and still the waves of the mind.
Since my Sivananda training I have completed the course 'Yoga for the Special Child' at the Special Yoga Centre in London that gave me the essential tools for teaching yoga to infants, children and young people with special needs. I’m also now continuing my studies with the Devon School of Yoga.

I run Sivananda inspired yoga classes in St Thomas and IDE in Exeter plus teach at spas and gyms including David Lloyd and Radiance Medi Spa in Exeter.
I look forward to sharing yoga with you.
