Cathy’s yoga practice started with Camille Thom at the downtown YMCA as she was looking to build a stronger core at the age of 50 so she could play ice hockey. She soon found that yoga offered more than just building core strength; it offered her mental clarity and emotional stability. She found that this clarity and stability was available to her throughout the day as long as she made it to yoga class. After a suggestion to check out Iyengar Yoga, she has been a student since 2008. She has studied with several senior teachers and looks forward to sharing with her students her passion for yoga and the joy it has brought her. She has been teaching for a year and enjoys bringing her students back to themselves via the precision, alignment and breath work of Iyengar Yoga. When Cathy is not studying yoga, she enjoys flat water paddling, playing with her dogs, hiking and hanging with her family. Cathy is one of our student teachers and is working towards her Iyengar Yoga certification.
