Private Yoga Classes

Private Yoga Classes Canberra & Queanbeyan

At Yoga on the Ridge we offer tailored individual programs for students wishing to develop a regular home practice (sadhana) or for those with specific goals or health conditions. Our Yoga for Life Personalised Coaching Program draws on 20 years of academic and practical experience to help you maximise the benefits of the practices for greater self-awareness, health, inner peace and spiritual awakening.

Whether it’s improving your balance and coordination, flexibility, concentration or emotional resilience, you can take control of your health and well-being today. Uncover and release what blocks or hinders you from living freely and harmoniously.

The enrolment process for private yoga classes is as follows:

Meet Dr. Katherine Martin

BA, BSc (Hons), PhD, Dip. Yogic Sciences

I have always had a strong connection with nature and at university I studied various sciences to learn more about the secrets behind the structure and function of living organisms. I then went on to complete a PhD in plant physiology, during which I had a series of realisations about the nature of life and how everything is a divine embodiment of sacred geometry.

After a few life-changing events, I became interested in the relationship between the mental, emotional and physical bodies, and how yoga could address the root causes of illness. Over the next 20 years, I deepened my exploration of various eastern and western philosophies, esoteric teachings, yogic physiology and psychology, nutrition and supplementation, and other healing modalities including vibrational medicine (especially light and sound).

Years later I decided to formalise my intimate knowledge of yoga with a two-year Diploma in Yogic Studies, the most comprehensive teacher-training course on offer. I studied Japanese Buddhism in Japan and am also an initiate of Tibetan Buddhism. The wisdom and insight gained from these practices complement my teaching style.

Step 1 - Discovery Session

The first step in our Yoga for Life Personalised Coaching Program is a free online session to discuss your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs, and to determine if you are ready to commit to an intensive program of transformational change.

Step 2 - Full Health Assessment

The second session involves a comprehensive health and well-being assessment, preferably conducted in person if possible. The information from the first and second sessions is used to set goals and objectives for your 10 week personalised program.

By committing to a coaching program with me, you will learn how to integrate simple yet effective practices into your daily life to create lasting and positive change. The secret to a balanced life is inner balance, peace and harmony. Your health is your greatest asset!

Step 3 - Start Your Personalised Yoga Program

Now we get down to business and start working towards your goals through intensive one-on-one sessions. My scientific and intuitive understanding of the body-mind-spirit complex allows me to draw on and synthesise the most appropriate practices and techniques to optimise your health and well-being. 

Over the course of the program, I help you to deepen your self-awareness and support you in working towards an integrated health goal. In the last session, we evaluate and review your progress and any improvements in health and well-being.

  • Subsequent packages are available in blocks of 5 classes and will continue to build on your personalised program and goals, adjusting as required. Packages may be conducted in person or online (in person preferred if physically possible).

Commit to an intensive coaching program today and welcome more peace, joy and serenity to your life!


I’m so thankful that I found Katherine and committed to the coaching program.  We worked together to establish my goals and Katherine gave me all the tools and guidance to succeed. The one on one support really helped to accelerate the results, not only physically but mentally. When I first started I was highly stressed and over the course of the 10 week program, I  built more resilience, learnt how to relax and calmed my nervous system. In addition, we worked on my strength and flexibility and I was astounded by the results at the end of the program. I came away from the experience with more energy and a better understanding of myself and I am forever grateful. 
I am just about to complete the coaching program at yoga on the ridge with Katherine and it has been amazing to be guided by her through my own yoga practice and have adopted a whole new one along the way. Katherine is very knowledgeable in terms of both the science of  yoga and the spiritual. 

The coaching program definitely saw me develop a much deeper understanding of my own practice and led me to learn alot about the school of yoga in which Katherine's teaching draws upon.  The inspiration I gained from the program will stay with me for the rest of my life. Katherine really understood me and what I was going through and tailored the program to meet my needs specifically, developing multiple practices for both in studio and at home. Katherine spent alot of time talking with me about mine and our spiritual journey and also teaching me about the different systems of yoga.  It's been a blessing to be able to share my experience with her and to learn abit about her own. 

The location is in the heart of the bush and surrounded by nature and the studio itself is zen and calming. It's the perfect place to be able to let go of anything you're holding onto, relax into your practice and the support of a very grounded and loving human. 

Yoga on the ridge has my 5 stars.
