Kathryn Willder has been a student and advocate of yoga and meditation for most of her life. She became fascinated by yoga as a teenager and trained in zen meditation whilst attending university. After completing an MA in Psychology, Kathryn facilitated the initial provision of yoga and meditation classes in prisons throughout the UK with the Prison Phoenix Trust in Oxford.
Through more than 10 years as a Reception and Kindergarten Teacher, Kathryn has developed a playful and engaging approach that infuses her lessons with aspects of stillness, imagination and a sense of adventure.
Today, Kathryn offers iRest in private practice as well as educational, corporate and clinical settings in Bath and London. She regularly assists at iRest teacher trainings and retreats.
“I love practising and teaching iRest because it has provided me with a systematic way of combining the cognitions of insight and awareness together with feelings of joy and ease to achieve lasting wellbeing.”
