Hi Kirsten. Just wanted to Tx you for the workshop in Bournemouth. The after effects of the day resonated for days after and have continued to do so since! Really reached my hips and leg muscles to the extent that even my toes have changed. I have ‘new’ legs! The whole day was so successful I hope you get to repeat it.
Restorative workshop with Kirsten was a joy, what a treat, I feel truly restored in body and soul!
Being from the UK, my husband and I knew of Kirsten Agar Ward by her strong reputation as teacher before we began practicing Iyengar yoga with her in Bermuda. She is a gifted teacher; bringing precision, determination, focus, unﬂinching patience and kindness to her classes. To practice yoga under Kirsten’s guidance has both challenged and remade our understanding of what yoga is.

Hi Kirsten Just a quick note to thank you for the yoga day at Yatesbury yesterday. The setting was beautiful and calm, the people were all friendly and it was a luxury to practice for that length of time with you as a kind, patient and gifted teacher. I took away many things from the day and after a fabulous nights sleep, I hope you run another one soon.

Hey Kirsten, Just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday’s class and let you know I have had so much energy since! Amazing what an effect a short class can have! I think all the leg work must have really helped, I think my energy must get stuck there and weigh me down!!
Hello Kirsten many thanks for a great workshop in Arnside. Many thanks Colin
Thank you so much for looking after me last night. I still learnt loads and everything has settled down overnight ready to start a new day today with Lois’ class tonight. I hope you have a good day!
Your May Intensive was insightful and well crafted as always. Such a luxury to have all those hours to work in depth on often a small group of postures taking them to new depths of understanding. My big breakthrough was with Pranayama which I have always found difﬁcult. By the third morning I had new glimmers of understanding and sensitivity. Thankyou
I have only been practicing yoga for a few years and as an inﬂexible 49 year old I am sincerely grateful that I had the opportunity to have Kirsten mentor me to set a proper foundation for my practice to develop and ﬂourish, and to reconnect with my body, breath and self awareness. This has come late in life but at a critical juncture before entering middle age. Kirsten taught me so much in a short time that in practically every pose I can recall her instructions or a pointer or tip that she shared to ﬁnd the intelligence and ease in the pose, to calm my mind and body and to perform the pose in alignment and safely. Kirsten impressed me with her calm, measured and precise approach to instruction as well as her reverence and compassion. I am sad that Kirsten is returning to the UK because it was evident that she intended to build the yoga community at a time when Bermuda desperately is in need of community builders and highly skilled health and wellness practitioners. Sincerely
I really enjoyed the foundation course, it was amazing how much beneﬁt I felt after just ﬁve lessons. I learned more with you than with all the years of dabbling with books and dvds. I would like to make yoga a regular part of my life and will sign up again as soon as I am able.
