"Moving Into Stillness Yoga Retreats" at Yamanashi, Japan ~ 19 - 28 September 2015

Dear Kate
The time we shared with everyone is still very fresh in me with full of love.
Really appreciating that you guided me to find the real me, and for your great method to make clear my intention.
The intention for rest of my life became clear.
Thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity.

"Such a great weekend with so many beautiful people. Kate you just bring out the best energy in everyone. Thank you, I have missed the guidance of such a caring knowledgable traditional teacher. the venue and food was amazing. I just wished there wasn't so much free time as I enjoyed your sessions so much. I leant so much and you also reminded me of so much I already know. Thank you so much lets keep in touch and I will be back for more of your retreats for sure". ~Nicole Gray, Malua Bay, NSW, Yoga Teacher.

"This retreat came to me at a time of challenge both with my health and lives juggles. I knew it came for a reason and it has been one of the most fulfilling weekends of my life. Kate, you have such a gentle way but with a great sense of fun which allows you to heighten the benefits of your teaching. I am blessed to have met you and all I have shared the weekend with. The yoga was blissful, the meditation nurturing, the company embracing and Kate is inspirational." ~Kate Gardiner, Canberra, Manager AOD Service.

"A beautiful weekend of companionship, caring and support in learning the asanas and other yoga disciplines and the space and time allowed around the teachings was truly a generous and appreciated aspect. Kate's created all of this with love, attention to the little details and always a respect for each individual. Thank you Kate." ~Didi King, Dignams Creek, NSW.

"Quite a different focus to the last one I attended (Narooma). Well worth coming. Would have liked more physical sessions but a higher being probably knew I should be attending to my inner me! You do a great job Kate - not stuck in dogma - love it". ~Bethan David, Canberra, ACT

"This was a beautiful retreat. Thank you Kate. I enjoyed the sessions, particularly the variety of classes we had (eg Interplay. songs/music and dance). the food was beautiful and amazing. I would have enjoyed even more classes, especially in the mornings, but overall a great experience". ~Uyen Nguyen, Canberra, ACT, Gov. Policy.

"I found myself back in the foothills of this amazing space - a place that had been my spiritual power source for so many years - my home - long now an excluded place rom my emotions - a "past" regretted but now the highlights remembered, the power, the connection to universal love rekindled in this gentle Yoga environment so wisely and kindly guided by Kate. And the past is now honoured for the lessons that I was given and I leave this weekend with a full heart, re-awakened awareness (and a full tummy)". ~Anne Spires, Cobargo, NSW


Testimonials for "Yoga Retreat and Holiday in a Bali Paradise" July 2014

Yoga retreats with Kate always allow a total immersion in the many facets of yoga. I come away with a greater understanding of my own body, my own spirituality and a greater awareness of the importance a daily yoga practice can bring to my life ~ As well as the inspiration to actually do it!! Kate caters to the various stages all the students are at making the retreats suitable for everyone. I am grateful to have had some firsts in my yoga journey on this retreat; being an 'out-of-body' experience; and a deep opening of my hips whereby I let go of tension and old trapped energy there with Kate's nurturing guidance.

The beauty of Bali provides the perfect backdrop for Kate's yoga retreats and has become an important annual event for me ~ I believe it is what has helped me to keep grounded, focused and a little freer in my daily life……bring on 2015.
~ Namaste SuryaMa (Michelle) from Narooma, Australia.

Thanks Kate for your patience and guidance, you have taught me heaps that I hope to take home and use in a practical setting. It was great to get away from everything and come to Bali to take time out. I know that I would never have learnt the techniques for meditation and yoga just by going to my lesson at home.
~ XX Jenny Lindsay from Bathurst, Australia.

Kate has provided me with the fundamentals of yoga that will definitely be of use for my practice at home. Kate also takes the time to explain why the postures are important and their positive impact on the body. She encourages you to love yourself and your body no matter what shape or size. The classes are suited to all levels of experience. It was well worth the journey.
~ Namaste Iluh (Belinda) from Bathurst, Australia.

I loved the pool meditation and the dancing and the fact that the yoga was paced at my level. My main learning was the postures that suit me, personalized learning – meditation training. I had always thought that yoga was supposed to be uncomfortable until you taught me otherwise.
~ J.L. Australia

Testimonials for "It's Never Too Late" Yoga Retreat in Narooma 21 - 23 February 2014
  "Thank you so much Kate – just what I needed and all aspects were helpful and enjoyable and so worthwhile"
~ Beth

"I'm a visitor to Australia. When I'm here I always try and go to Kate's class and was just recently lucky enought to participate in her retreat. It was my first yoga retreat and I I guess I thought it would be focused on postures, but it was so much more, it was also the whys and the ways. Kate has a huge amount of knowledge covering the whole spectrum of yoga and the physical body. If you want to know how to work to the best effect with what you've got, ie. weak back or knees she can guide you, but more than that she gives such sound practical advice about starting or sustaining a practice that can lead you into a journey of empowering health and well being. Some of the things that you can only touch on in a yoga class or not be able to experience on your own in your practice like chanting in a group I found particularly exciting and enjoyable, letting go of the belief I can't sing and making use of the safe held space to be free and open,"
hallelujah ~ Jacqui Sandy, UK

"The retreats bring me back to my centres. Kate is a beautiful soul who teaches from the heart. All levels of ability are individually catered to in a safe and caring manner. It has been a great joy to be here."
Thank you from my heart to yours. ~ Edith

"A lovely tranquil place, nice small group. Kate very intuitive and caring, food wonderful. The time-out was good. Kate is a good instructor. Meditation was fabulous and the healing session was wonderful."
Thank you! ~ Tricia

"I felt a great sense of letting go, which I really needed. Kate, you have a beautiful way of sharing yoga with us, a beautiful calming voice and a peaceful way of direction. Your meditation instruction and guidance was so easy to follow and effective. I loved the relaxed nature of the whole weekend."
Thank you so much. ~ Jane Haverfield

"Great group of interesting people. Great food. An amazing learning experience."
~ Joy Fern

"Have softened into myself and others and become totally unaware of time-external pressures."
~ Amanda Roberts

Kate Nirlipta is an inspiring beautiful teacher, she taught me how to balance my unbalanced guna's, she gave encouragement with her compassion and I had special emotional moment through her session class. Thank you for guiding me to understand the "Svadhyaya" and the yoga lifestyle about "cleaning the mirror" and "spreading the light". Always love her meditation, relaxation and evening activity. Love the healing power of song "I am the light of my soul" every time I hear the song my heart & soul feels like a blooming lotus flower. I feel so blessed to have you as my teacher and you have helped me to spread my wingsabsolutely transforming. Terima kasih banyak ibu cantik. Love always

I am delighted to recommend Kate Nirlipta to anyone at all who is interested in experiencing heart based wisdom through embodied yoga. She is simply the best yoga teacher I have been fortunate enough to learn from. Her approach remains influential in my own practice and teaching. Kate first inspired me fifteen years ago to practice yoga. I was an ex dance teacher still grappling with issues resulting from a car accident and a crushed T12. Her sensitive and knowledgable teaching helped me discover a new way of experiencing my self and my body and began my love affair with the transformative power of yoga on all levels. She also introduced me to the incredible practice of Yoga Nidra . Last year in 2012 I attended a yoga teacher training intensive in Bali largely for the opportunity to again learn from Kate. Her mastery as a teacher and her heart felt warmth and compassion was acknowledged and highly valued by all in the course who were wide ranging in age and cultural backgrounds. She embodies her teaching and has encouraged us all to find our own authentic way to do this in our practice and the classes we offer. I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn from her and would encourage anyone of any age or experience to take to opportunity to learn from this outstanding teacher.

I love yoga with Kate! Yoga day is my favourite day of the week, a special time I dedicate to myself.
Kate has shown me that yoga is so much more than postures and stretches.Her knowledge and experience is shared gently with love and kindness.The Breathing Space studio is filled with loving, healing energy. Natural light floods the room, the birds sing in the garden and the ocean waves area gentle sigh in the distance. A very special place to practice yoga and meditation.
I feel blessed to have found Kate and her classes. Her yoga is the real deal, truly a mind, body and spirit experience. Thank you Kate.
