“My husband and I have been practising yoga for a good few years but have never been to a real life class. We booked a private couples session with Jill as a “date day” treat to ourselves. Jill tailored a class to our requests and made it very special for us with a lovely guided meditation, followed by a relaxing sound bath at the end. The ambience was perfect in Jill’s beautifully decorated, spacious studio, complemented by her warm and inviting personality. We had every luxury we could have wanted. The sounds, smells, visuals and furnishings ensured that every sense was carefully considered and catered for. We came away feeling very relaxed and refreshed. :)” (Crystal, February 2022, Private Yoga Session)
“Jill instantly made me feel at ease at the very first meeting and continues to make me feel even more comfortable and confident in class. The studio is such a peaceful, luxurious space to practise in and I am embracing the whole wellness experience. I am very much looking forward to progressing further in my yoga journey with Jill.” (Samantha, February 2023, Yoga Course)
“I have absolutely enjoyed every minute of the Wednesday night class. I feel a lot calmer and relaxed following the class, but feel like I have done a workout at the same time. You share your knowledge and are a fantastic teacher, you encourage the yogis and this continues through the WhatsApp group, all the extras keep me motivated. I am really looking forward to the next sessions. Thank you.” (Estelle, February 2023, Yoga Course)
“Being a complete beginner and a woman of a certain age I felt scared and apprehensive on my entry to my first session but Jill made me feel relaxed the minute I entered the yoga studio. It is a comfortable, peaceful space that instantly puts you at ease. I can honestly say that it has been a life-changing experience that I am eager to continue. Practicing the art of yoga has helped me mentally and physically. I suffer with arthritis and I can already feel the pain and stiffness easing. Jill allows and encourages everyone in the group to proceed at their own pace. I am so looking forward to my next sessions! Thank you Jill.” (Helen, February 2023, Yoga Course)

“An Autumn Day for self-care which nourished the mind, body and soul.
I don’t think I could praise Jill highly enough for such an amazing day from beginning to end. Every attention to detail was extremely thoughtful and wonderful.
The agenda was perfect, with an hour long gong and sound bath,which I found wonderfully relaxing, yoga, forest bathing, meditation, journaling and a helpful stress busting session. Plus a really thoughtful goody bag of treats to take home!
In an intimate and beautiful setting I felt completely safe and nurtured in and with women you feel happy to be with. Oh and the food was divine!
This was a such fabulous day.” (Andrea, Self-Care Day, October 22nd, 2023)

“The afternoon of self care and wellness at the Katham Yoga Centre is a wonderful blend of yoga, meditation and affirmation. The yoga studio is a delight and everything you need is supplied for you, including yoga mats, cushions, bolsters, blankets, etc. Gorgeous refreshments are also included. Jill is a very inspiring yoga teacher. So much thought goes into the whole experience, so participants can just relax and enjoy every moment. It was all great but my favourite part was the sound bath. This is a very inclusive afternoon in a safe space, where everyone of every ability is catered for. Loved it. 5 stars from me – 10 out of 10. Excellent value for money too. Can’t wait for the next one.” (Patricia, Wellness Afternoon, May 21st 2023)

“What an amazing relaxing experience! Jill warmly welcomes you into her home and the yoga studio is so beautiful! The sound bath is sublime and the gentle yoga is for everyone as you all do what you can, followed by a meditation session. The afternoon is interspersed with mindfulness activities but there’s no pressure at all and I felt so comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon with the intimate group of 6 like minded people all of us wanting to switch off from the hussle and bussle of everyday life. And there’s a super bonus of delicious vegan goodies to indulge in throughout the afternoon which we ate in the garden enjoying the amazing views xxxx”. (Helen, Wellness Afternoon, May 21st 20223)
