A BIT ABOUT CATHY

Dedicated to Wellbeing 

​I began practicing yoga in Northern CA in the late 90’s, as I found it both physically challenging and emotionally supportive. When my oldest daughter was born in the Fall of 2000, I tabled my practice for many years and turned to running to conquer stress and stay fit. After numerous injuries (from no yoga) I found my practice once again—or rather it found me.  What I discovered this time around was a way of living, being and serving others that beautifully aligned with my philosophies, values, and parenting views. I began teaching yoga in 2018, became a certified Mindfulness Meditation Instructor in 2022 and a level 2 iRest Yoga Nidra teacher in 2023.  I am certified in breathwork, cellular health, reiki, and sound massage as well and am presently studying trauma sensitive mindfulness and awakening joy.
 

Currently I teach in-person and online group, private and corporate yoga & meditation classes. I am a mother of three girls and two dogs with deep compassion and concern for those dealing with trauma, anxiety, stress and grief.  I have been on my own personal healing journey for several years working with somatic therapies, IFS, Acupuncture, Yoga Nidra and sound healing.

 

My inclusive offerings are designed to accommodate all people/all bodies in a warm and inviting space. All are welcome to open their hearts, minds and bodies, to invite lightness of being into their lives and to feel the unique sense of aliveness that yoga, meditation, mindfulness, sound and good health brings.  I personally invite you to join me in returning to wholeness on or off your mat.

Sending prayers to all sentient beings in these troubled times.  
 

May all beings be safe and protected

May all beings be well in body and mind.

May all beings be happy and free

May all beings know love

 

Namaste
