What past students are saying.....
“Cathy has a magnetizing effect on those around her. She lives her life with total integrity and brings extreme authenticity and honesty to her teacher training, inspiring the students and people around her. [...] One indication of the quality of Cathy's teacher training is the strength of the bonds formed by the students. As one of sixteen students in her course, I can confidently say my classmates are among the most trusted and trustworthy people I know.” – Jason M.
"This was a life changing experience. [...] Beyond the education, I had a life altering experience which was guided by the most passionate yogi I know. I'm so honored to have had this experience and would highly recommend her training and workshops to anyone interested in expanding their horizons." – Amy E.
"I am in constant awe of Cathy. I first met Cathy as a student on my mat. At the stime, she was unaware how her teachings had reached me, and I kept coming back for more. Never had I experienced such compassion, such understanding, and such acceptance from simply listening to someone speak. Whether she knew it or not she was speaking to my soul. This is the way I witness any others experience Cathy. Her heart radiates out of her at every encounter. I knew I needed more. I have since journeyed with Cathy through two retreats and through her teacher training program and through her unwavering support of my journey into my own radiance. Every step of the way knowing that Cathy was with me. Her teachings are never with a rule that must be followed or the "should do's" but with simply (not so simply) being a constant light, a pillar of support, and a reminder that I am not alone. Her love and deep devotion are inspiring and have transformed my life. I am not a different person than I was when I first came to my mat in Cathy's class, but I am now all of myself. There is no more hiding . I am seen, and I will forever be grateful to Cathy for standing beside me as I cam into my light"

What is Possible for you at this Teacher Training and why it is unique:
At the last TT I led, one student taught a power vinyasa class for her final project, another taught a yin class, and yet another taught a kriya-based meditation class. I was overjoyed to see each student find their passion and voice. In that moment, I knew this training was unique and special because it gave students all the tools they needed to teach the type of class that resonated with them. It also gave students the freedom to discover their strengths and gifts as a teacher. When you show up authentically, you have a powerful impact on your students and my students have a powerful impact on me!
This training will give you the foundation you need to teach a vinyasa class that is powerful, alive and uniquely you. You will find your voice and your way to inspire others!
In addition, I have traveled to the Himalayas of India 7 times to studey with my teacher and I will bring these practices back to you!!! The ancient practices of kundalini, tantra, kriya, pranayama and mantra stabilize the nervous system, release stuck energy, awaken dormant energy, increase intuition and give us more access to the wisdom of our hearts! .
