THE SWEAT LIFE with Kate is a new yoga and fitness studio expressing the powerful connection between body and mind. Kate believes the way we move and nourish ourselves is the mirror for how we live. 
Everyone, at some point, is called upon to start a new journey, and after eight phenomenal years of owning and running Bikram Yoga Christchurch, Kate has now opened The Sweat Life, a small boutique space where she can continue to teach breath centered movement, precise alignment and mind-body connection. 
Continually studying, and refining, she keeps her students motivated while sharpening their kinesthetic awareness both in and outside of the classroom.

As we wind up our practice at BYCHCH, to close our doors - March 31st, we have nothing but gratitude for you - our students. 

The founder of Bikram's Yoga said; "You only have to travel six inches in your life. That is the distance from your mind to your heart." Another great philosopher Mark Nepo said, "The longest journey you will make in your life is from your Head to your Heart." 
Truth is, I think we all feel often times caught between the two, sometimes our worst battle is between what we know and recognising what is in our hearts and having the courage to follow these feelings, especially when challenged to make a change, which is a lesson I feel I am embracing right now in my life. Change is the process of life Itself.
THANK YOU again for your presence, practice and kindness over the years. As I take time to recharge and recover, I hope I can continue to connect and share what inspires me, in hopes that it will inspire you, and when the time comes, I look forward to our practicing together again, bending, stretching and twisting on our mats as a tool to see our minds more clearly, open our hearts more deeply, transforming our relationship with ourselves. 

Aroha nui. Kate Lillian Burford
