Atsuko Kato

Atsuko was born and brought up in Japan. She studied yoga extensively in London in 1990’s. Her teachers include John Scott, Godfrey Devereux, Kisen and David Swenson.

She mainly studied Ashtanga yoga and Iyenger yoga, but she also studied with other teachers with different backgrounds.​

She started teaching in 1995 in London in health clubs and adult education and has been continuously teaching since. She moved to Bideford, North Devon in 1996 and began teaching in many settings and to private students.

Her lessons are broadly based on the Ashtanga yoga format but they combine different Hatha yoga styles. The emphases are on correct alignments, correct breathing and breath/movement coordination leading to meditaion and deep relaxation. They are suitable for any age and ability.

​​Currently there are 4 weekly classes in Bideford, 4 in Barnstaple, two monthly Ashtanga yoga workshops and one Mindfulness Workshop in Bideford. Private classes can be also arranged either at Atsuko’s home at EX39 or your home, office or holiday accomodation.

Atsuko continues to be a fully committed yoga student and practitioner of mindfulness and pracitses regularly with others and on her own. She is widely read in yoga and spirituality and currently studying Yoga Philosophy at Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.
