It can be daunting starting a new class but rest assured at Yoga Body | Zen Mind you will immediately be put at ease.
Kerrie will discretely cover any concerns or questions you have and share variations and adjustments that gives your class that special touch.
"Thank you Kerrie. That was a wonderful class - just what I needed emotionally as well as physically." Sarah, Online.
"No more chiropractor appointments needed for me, since attending Kerrie’s Yoga classes! The classes are fun but oh so beneficial and Kerrie provides all the encouragement and support anyone could need, each movement Kerrie ensures caters for all abilities, this makes me feel so comfortable in the class, even when I wobble and go wrong! The added bonus of the online classes means no travelling or parking, saves so much time and the online connection is so clear you feel Kerrie is in the room with you! especially when she is making me laugh or when Kerrie sounds the bowl or the gorgeous gong. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kerrie, for your kindness and never ending support and patience. I have never gone two years without back pain, until I started attending your classes." Lissy, UK, Online.
“Kerrie is very dedicated to her teaching and her classes are just amazing! She is a very warm and caring person, with her attention given to each of us individually making sure we are all in a good place. Each class is extremely well planned with great themes, which come across in all our movements and breathing techniques, on which she gives very clear instructions throughout the session.
I leave feeling a strong sense of wellbeing and almost as though I have accomplished something new, which is quite emotional…..Kerrie certainly creates this ‘aura’ which she manages to radiate around her…..a feeling of calm and peacefulness…..” Julie, Bristol.
"When I moved to Portishead 3 years ago I never thought that I would be able to find a class that was as amazing as the class that I used to attend for 10 years in Bristol. Kerrie's class has taken my Yoga to the next level and I love her overall teaching style. Kerrie offers the complete Yoga experience, mind, body and higher self. Would highly recommend" Helen, Portishead.
"This lovely lady has helped me immeasurably with my anxiety around cancer treatment and afterwards. I cannot recommend her highly enough! Wish I’d done this years ago!" Denise North Somerset.
"Kerrie is a brilliant yoga teacher. Calm, patient, thoughtful and professional. Her classes have shifted effortlessly to the online world." David, UK, Online.
"I love the Meditation & Yoga Nidra class - Kerrie makes the classes interesting and different each week and I feel so relaxed and content afterwards. A lovely class to attend and comes highly recommended!" Anne-Marie, UK Online.
"Kerrie is a wonderful teacher. Her classes are suitable for all levels of yogis, whether an absolute beginner, or an experienced practitioner. She brings variety to every class so you never feel as if the class is a repeat of last week's. Kerrie is an total professional - she has studied hard to gain all of her yoga, hypnotherapy and other related qualifications. She takes her craft very seriously and ensures that she delivers a very high standard of teaching. I have been practicing yoga with her for about five years now and I have found my personal well being has changed for the better during this time, partly due to the practice that Kerrie provides each week. I would thoroughly recommend Kerrie for her on line yoga practices and her genuine belief in Zen and mindfulness." Linda, UK, Online.
"Kerrie has really stepped up to the new pressure's that we all now face. Every Monday I look forward to yoga & Kerrie's positive & cheery personality really shines through which we all need. Every week I come away feeling calm & relaxed. It really comes across just how much Kerrie enjoys teaching her classes. If anyone is looking to try something new from home I would definitely recommend giving 1 of her classes a go." Sarah, UK, Online.
"After an hour and a half of root canal treatment in the dentist chair (which I was feeling very anxious about due to everyone's negative comments about it!) the dentist asked me afterwards 'do you practice yoga?' to which I said YES! And told her all about your classes and how wonderful you are Kerrie! It was a long and tricky treatment but I continued to stay calm by using my breath and as a result my experience of the procedure was so much better than I’d expected. Thank you!" Mary, Online.
"I have been practising yoga with Kerrie for 6/7 years. I join the Monday morning class, which is a lovely way to start the week. The class is excellent. Kerrie always offers alternatives to any pose might be too challenging. I definitely feel stronger emotionally and physically because of it. Kerrie is a wonderful caring teacher." Viv, North Somerset.
"I absolutely love Kerrie’s yoga classes. She has a very holistic approach to her teaching and each class begins and ends with some mindful meditation practice. Everyone is made to feel very welcome and each practice is perfectly tailored for all ages and levels of Yogis, male and female, accommodating beginners and those who are more accomplished, as well as those with injuries. The classes are absolutely non-competitive and non-judgmental. I highly recommend Yoga Body Zen Mind." Lisa, North Somerset.
"Yoga with Kerrie is for me something TRULY MAGIC. It cannot be just described, it has to be tried! It is so pleasant start a week with or attend an evening class after work. This experience is really UNIQUE to me.
Here is what I appreciate:
How yoga can be so gentle and strengthen your body at the same time! Such an unbelievable combination. Thanks to Kerrie, I finally understand and feel what it means to love my body, and what a nonsense it is to compare to others.
The lessons are very well structured. Seems to be following a long-term plan, which deepens the understanding of body and life.
Apart from this, I love Kerrie's short induction at the beginning of each lesson. She always shares something she realized in her life or a few rows from a book. It is so enriching and well presented! These topics often resonate with me throughout the week.
All this in an incredibly spontaneous, joyful atmosphere." Lucie, Portishead
"I find Kerrie's sessions like a breath of fresh air, tranquil and so calming. I love her open, welcoming and friendly attitude. There is no pressure with the yoga poses, just a gentle release of tension. As it says on the packet she creates a wonderful atmosphere which clears and relaxes the mind such as I've never known before." Chris, North Somerset
"Just to say again what a great class this evening. My running felt great afterwards which I'm sure is down to all the great stretching. My ankle was so sore a few months back and now I have no pain at all thanks to your yoga!" Jayne, Portishead

"I have been going to Kerrie's classes for a little while now. She puts us at ease and I always feel completely comfortable as I try to improve my postures, working within my own ability. Among other things, yoga has really helped improve my posture. My favourite part of the class is the mindful relaxation at the end. This really helps me to get peace of mind and completely relax. Kerrie is a fab teacher, she is very friendly, warm and welcoming. I really recommend her classes." Becci, Portishead
"I love these classes they are easy to follow and I can feel the positive difference in me after every class; it’s addictive!" Vicky, Portishead
"I just wanted to say thank you for your classes, I've been to a number of different yoga classes over the past 13 years or so, and yours has been the one that has allowed everything to fall into place. I now understand the importance, and benefit, of connecting my breath with the moments and I've seen the greatest progression in my flexibility and mindfulness since doing this. You're pace and tone create a relaxed, tranquil and grounded class and I feel refreshed and vitalised afterwards. Thank you again." Rachael, Portishead.
"Kerries' teaching style is very inclusive and she really does make classes as challenging as you want them. This is why her classes suit both beginners and experienced yogis. Her focus on mindfulness means I can truly relax, have fun and work physically hard, all in an hour! If you are thinking about trying yoga or want to improve your practice from a new perspective this is the yoga class for you." Emily, Bristol
"Really enjoyed the Zen aspect and Zen story at the end, it has left me with something to think about. Interesting stuff." James, Portishead
"I love Kerrie's class and style of teaching....it's so good for when stress is high. Her classes really calm me down and ground me. I have a problem with my right hip and after an hour of yoga, the pain goes away! The mindfulness is so helpful too as I do find it hard to switch off." Mary, Portishead
"I wanted to write a few paragraphs to try and sum up what you and your classes have recently brought to my life. I am so grateful to the 'powers that be' for bringing me to your door so to speak, you are truly magical in the way you teach."
"..It's a mad world that we live in! Our lives seems constantly in the fast lane even though most of us try hard to use the slow lane from time to time. I have found a practice that takes just one hour a week from my time but immeasurably enhances my life every second of the day.
My brain has stopped whizzing around, I listen to what people say, I am calm and have inner peace with myself, I have a smile on my face!! I have found a class so special and unique run by a wonderful person called Kerrie, who's welcome was so warm and sweet. She gently guides us through the practice of Yoga Nidra a simple way to reduce stress which promotes deep rest and relaxation. Yoga Nidra has brought me peace, tranquility and a much improved state of mind, plus inner strength within my being - feel the power of yogic sleep and when the Gong sounds your never miss a beat!" Teresa, Portishead
