ABOUT "CASTAWAY" and our YOGA Practice
KAT CARROLL - Ashtanga & SUP YOGA Teacher
Kat Carroll has been teaching yoga for over 20 years. As a professional dancer the balance of the breath and the body was natural but overcoming the mind was her biggest challenge. This led her to study the 8 Fold Path of Ashtanga Yoga with Sri K Pattabi Jois and Beryl Bender Birch. She continued her studies through the years with other great yoga masters including Choudray Bikram, Baron Baptiste, Brian Kest and many others. Yoga is a way of life for Kat creating and nurturing her passion for photography and the beauty that this world brings. She has taught thousands of students from all over the world and the shores of the Caribbean Sea to quiet the mind is to set yourself free and to live fully in the now.

SUP Yoga: A fantastic way to tone your core, build stability and learn yoga on the water!
SUP yoga involves standing on a large paddle board whilst taking part in a yoga practice. The need for balance and stability in order to do poses whilst on the board will mean you learn about your body, your breath and your mind in a very different way to being at home or in the yoga studio.
SUP yoga is a great new way to experience yoga and challenge yourself. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, try something new and empower yourself.
Yoga means union, when it’s practiced outdoors it seems like the union with nature, humanity, and the universe is truly felt.
Dynamic Vinyasa: a flowing practice, synchronising breath and movement (vinyasa). It is regarded as one of the most effective practices to increasing health and fitness, harnessing vital life-force PRANA (taken in primarily through the breath), quieting the mind and supporting a stream of consciousness that leads to greater mental stillness and stability.
