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.

CLASSES & INFO

B E G I N • A G A I N

I am so grateful to my wonderful yoga community for all the love and support which has poured in for the sudden and unexpected passing of my Dad. Although, it feels so completely consuming and unreal for me still, I realise there are small, everyday things that can help lift us out of our sadness, even if only for a moment.

Dad built a sacred yoga space for us to play in, where he loved to join us on the mat, to move to release and bring lightness to our days. This practice truly has moved me, changed me, and still continues to affect my everyday.

I look forward to seeing you all soon. It might be a team effort, I can teach you how to move the body, you might have to remind me how to breathe.
Aroha nui, Kate

Kate’s yoga classes ‘TwoTwentySix’ and ‘WakeUpYourSpine’ are choreographed from the Bikram/Ghosh lineage class, in a room, which is ‘warm’, no more than 30 degrees, heated with Far Infrared Heating. Like many before you, you will find that practicing yoga in a warm temperature controlled room creates a satisfying and almost addictive feeling of wellbeing.

My teaching style is athletic, strong, empowering, and infused with my desire to affect a deeper change. Having taught for years, my belief in the benefits of Bikram’s Method of Yoga has only grown. The practice provides an opportunity to build a powerful connection between body, mind and breath. We use the body, to go in, peel back the layers of our own wellbeing, in a challenging and transformative way… we heal, we release and we find strength. The point is to make you leave feeling like you have done something amazing for yourself. The same voice that says 'give up' can also be trained to say 'keep going'.

Catering for all skill levels, from beginners to seasoned yogis.
