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.

Bikram Yoga is a sequence of 26 hatha yoga postures and 2 breathing exercises developed by Bikram Choudhury. Traditionally a 90 minute class, taught by a certified Bikram Yoga Instructor, completed in a room heated to thirty-eight degrees. The class is challenging but accessible to everyone of all ages and abilities.

The sequence systematically works every part of the body, stimulating every system, organ, blood vessel, ligament and muscle to attain maximal health and optimal function. Bikram yoga is an amazing system of exercise that is designed to balance and strengthen everything, helping prevent illness, repair injuries and stimulate the body’s natural ability for growth and repair. In addition, the series of postures combine skills of concentration, patience, determination and self-control, which lead to mental clarity and an increased ability to deal with stress.
