Kate has been teaching exercises inspired from yoga, pilates, fitness classes and drama practices for over 20 years. Kate's classes bring a unique approach to teaching and self-healing — one that focuses on moving the body with the breath to help each individual improve their core stability, balance, coordination and connection with their inner self. Kate also includes fun creative exercises to help reduce tension so that everyone can practice in a warm friendly environment without fear of judgement or self scrutiny.  KP Core Connection can be taught in Kate's private studio in Luchon or in your own home or online through Zoom.

Les cours de Kate apportent une approche unique de l'enseignement et de l'auto-guérison - une approche qui se concentre sur le mouvement du corps avec la respiration pour aider chaque individu à améliorer sa stabilité, son équilibre, sa coordination et sa connexion avec son moi intérieur. Kate comprend également des exercices créatifs amusants pour aider à réduire la tension afin que chacun puisse pratiquer dans un environnement chaleureux et convivial sans crainte de jugement ou d'auto-examen. KP Core Connection peut être enseigné dans le studio privé de Kate à Luchon ou dans votre propre maison ou en ligne via Zoom.

ABOUT KP CORE CONNECTION

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND KP CORE CONNECTION

The philosophy behind KP Core Connection started over 20 years ago when Kate was working as a drama teacher for children and young adults, including children with special needs such as autism. Kate realised back then the benefits improvisation and creative movement were having on the children and their overall health. Teaching drama gave Kate an early insight into the healing qualities playful movement can have on the body. Kate also studied as a personal trainer and gym instructor, before becoming a professional mountain bike racer. During this time Kate experienced and witnessed the negative impact physical movement can have on the body when combined with mental stress and chronic high levels of the 'fight and flight response'. Kate undertook 5 years studying nutritional therapy where she took a keen interest in the negative effects chronic stress has on the body. Nutritional Therapy is not just about nutrient choices and certainly not calorie counting. Nutritional Therapy looks very closely at lifestyle choices, mental health and the impact the environment has on our genes (epigenetics). Research supports yoga as a therapy for chronic health conditions and stress related illnesses, as well as simply improving overall health. Kate decided to train as a yoga teacher, where she met Tandy who specializes in using yoga techniques to help heal and reduce pain in people living with chronic pain. All these experiences and the people Kate has learnt from along the way have all contributed to the idea behind KP Core Connection.
Kate focuses on a wide range of techniques and exercises to help individuals improve their physical and mental well being. KP Core Connection provides a healing and friendly environment for individuals to take ownership of their body and to connect with their internal self. Kate's classes are available to different age groups, athletic abilities and can be taught in english or french. Self harm and self judgement will not be tolerated. Instead be prepared for self development and awareness in a warm, fun and friendly environment.

"It was lovely to be back in your class this morning. When we have you instructing us we are exercising our brains as well as our bodies and that’s so important.  So, thank you!"Jonathan

 "Not been on the bike for 8 weeks till this morning. Still managed the off-road climb to the top of the trails in one. Not because the legs felt good, but because my core felt much more efficient at propelling me uphill. And the quiet aussie voice in my head reminding me to not use muscles that didn't help. And to smile!" Rob

"I started tentatively doing Kate’s yoga lessons a year ago to help treat my asthma issues, well

I have not stopped and very addicted to it! Kate has really helped improve my fitness and body shape so much and her lessons are very good." Sam

"What an absolute professional and knowledgeable lady. She simply oozes an abundance of peace and tranquility. Amazing individual who can teach us all a great deal!" Jason

Yoga at Home

"That was one of the best gym sessions I have done for ages.. It was EXCELLENT. The calming steady voice.. terminology used and explanations on why we are doing things were so professional and spot on.. Super impressed and loved it.. i have started to do a few things I know I cant easily do and always avoid .. Kate seriously .. WELL DONE YOU .. BRILLIANT. See you Saturday and THANK YOU" Marni

 "I love these mountain bike fit focussed classes. This time last year a lunge or a plank was point in a class where I sat it out and watched. They were something that only other people could do. Now I'm amazed to find myself joining in with those exercises and sometimes even taking the harder options. Thanks Kate!" Sarah

 "I know Kate through the biking business, fell in love with their ethos a style of guiding, coaching and lunches! so when Kate started offering classes online from France I jumped at the chance. superb. hopefully This will carry on post lockdown I feel benefits after just a handful of classes."
