- Introduction to Mindful Yoga in Supportive and Palliative Care
Kate trained at Yogacampus in 2010. She has been working as a clinical Music Therapist for over 10 years and works in a hospice in Oxfordshire, where she integrates yoga and mindfulness techniques into her therapeutic work with patients and their families. Kate also teaches Mindful Yoga at the Maggie’s cancer centre, Oxford, at Sobell House Hospice and runs groups for people living in the community suffering from chronic and terminal illness. Kate is about to complete an MSc in Palliative Care at King’s College London, for which she won a scholarship to do research into mind/body therapies and pain. She is also involved with several research projects including the Wellcome Trust funded “Life of Breath” project into breathlessness and a pilot project looking at the effect of yoga on adolescents with severe skin disease. Kate’s aim is to bring yoga into mainstream healthcare in order for it to be free at the point of access, and in the education of healthcare professionals into the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of yoga.
