About


About
I used to practice as a teenager with my mother at a local community hall.  I remember seeing a woman do a headstand in the middle of the room, and spent a long time convincing myself, that, as that is physically impossible, it didn't happen.

I took up yoga practice whilst suffering with depression in my early 20s, and found it made me feel profoundly 'different'. I sparkled. Yoga, spiritual practice and movement practice always amaze me by their capacity to heal, soothe & inspire.
In 2015 I went to Bali to train in Ashtanga Vinyasa, rescued a kitten, wrote a few bad songs, and felt renewed..

Fast forward five years, I have over 500 hours training in Vinyasa, Mandala, Yin & Forrest. You can find me teaching around SE London, sometimes dragging my handpan onto crowded trains. I have spent time teaching in India & hosting international retreats.
I am a Reiki Level II Practitioner and Bodyworker, and nowadays frequently stand on my own head.


Click ​here​​​ to sign up to my mailing list - I keep that a little more updated & interesting.

This site is under construction - as is my life.
Which is a dramatic and not entirely accepting way of saying that the global situation has affected me deeply - as it has countless others. I am in the process of picking up pieces, forming new pathways, & holding deep shifts.
New joys are coming.

Online Classes Timetable


Online Classes Timetable

Many of my classes right now are covers while I navigate re entering the industry.
I am holding a couple of classes on Zoom, (link to book below!), but please know this is all in a little bit of flux.  I will have a more updated schedule on my instagram - find me at @Katbasq.

Wednesday
18:30-19:45pm Yin Yang
A soothing class for cold Autumn evenings.  We begin and end in long soft Yin holds, with an energising and warming flow in between.  

Thursday
12:30pm Vinyasa
A sweet flow class with a focus on playfulness, curiosity and tenderness.  You'll work with strength, flexibility and mobility and feel soothed and uplifted.

Sunday
10:30am Mandala (intermediate)
A fluid dance-like flow where we spiral around the mat.  Each day is based on a different element, & our movements harness the energy of that element.  challenge yourself and play.

Retreats


RetreatsRetreats
Corfu, 11th - 18th September

I am so happy to come back to the Just Relax villa in Almyros, Corfu. I hosted a retreat here last year in the midst of the pandemic, and it brought me a soothing dose of deep peace. The area is rural, natural and sun kissed.  The air smells of honey.

The villa sits next to the beach - you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. It's perfect for a sunrise stroll, swimming and melting the afternoon away. I will teach two classes each day - an invigorating morning class, and a more replenishing evening class.

Food is locally grown vegetarian deliciousness, and ripe fruit is abundant. There are fig trees to forage from & grapes growing in the garden. Let us know if you have any dietary requirements we can cater for.

There are a few excursions available - trips to neighboring towns, including the abandoned village of Old Perithia, which nature's reclaimed; bike rides, including uphill to the best gelato in Greece; boat trips; hikes; or just lounging in one of the little sun traps dotted around.

Spaces are limited to remain covid safe. However you can request to share a room with a loved one.

Check here for more information, or email me at katbasquill@hotmail.co.uk

Prices start at £600, check out here to book!

Bodywork


I believe deeply in the power of a sincere loving touch.  Last year I became curious about the profound healing capacity of touch, which led me to train in Bodywork.

I trained with the renowned Alchemy of Touch, a school of bodywork with a unique & deeply effective style.  Mixing elements of Thai massage, Osho rebalancing massage, Deep Tissue Strokes, myofascial release, & their own Fluid Touch, a session is intuitive & healing.  The touch mimics the flow of energy within the body, aids the clearing of blockages and creates deep and soft space.

In this year of isolation, the power of touch is that bit more potent.



At the moment I am set up at Breeze Yoga in Beckenham every Tuesday from 9-2pm in their brand new treatment rooms.  Please book here, and use the code BODYWORK1 for £10 off your first treatment.

I am available for home visits - location dependant, and prices to be agreed.  It is important to me to make healing accessible, so please reach out if you are in need of a treatment but aren't in a place of abundance.  Healing & comfort shouldn't be a privilege.



Crystallise


Crystallise

Crystallise is a movement of togetherness to hold and cherish our deepest worth. 2020 has been a hurricane of a year, and has left many of us feeling scattered and in need of something deep and medicinal.
There is a strong call for intimate listening. Our innermost voices tend to get muted in life’s busyness, and this is time to step back and listen with tenderness to what your soul craves.
I will share different tools to
melt away blockages
clarify visions
create space to soothe wounds
empower
harness the glow of inspiration
and believe in your own essence
We will work through the medium of a daily and non dogmatic Sadhana involving ritual, meditation, journaling, self massage & touch, Nidra, breathwork & soundbaths. Each week we will connect in Zoom circles, and I would love you to connect to each other and open up channels of support.

How does it work?
I have created a private Instagram group for us to meet in – I have chosen Instagram as it gives you scope to explore eachother’s creative and visual worlds. Each evening, I will upload a fifteen minute video for you to watch in the morning upon your own waking, with a meditation and instructions for the day’s workings. Please allow yourself time for the whole video, and I encourage more if you wish to move spaciously. Try not to miss days, as we will weave upon the threads of the previous days.

What's included?
3 weeks of;
6 x 15 minute videos, sent each evening for you as you wake the following morning. I encourage you to spend all the time that you wish on these videos.
1 x weekly Zoom Circle, where we come together to share stories and encouragement.
1 x weekly gathering of Nidra, Yoga or Sound.
My one on one guidance and support.
We finish a week before the Solstice. I deeply urge you to pick up the threads of whichever tools resonated the most, and carry on this Sadhana to take you through - and then beyond.

Cost is as follows:
I will use a sliding scale of £50 or £75. I have places for Scholarships for BIPOC & individual cases – if this is you, please email me directly. When paying the higher tier, please know you are supporting someone else to access this web, and I am very grateful.
