I am so utterly and completely lit up by the opportunity to help people, each and every day.
I love my clients.
I love seeing them grow, expand, relax and heal their bodies.
When I’m working one-on-one, I often lose track of time and find myself in a zone where all I care about in that moment is helping them feel better.
Unlike my previous corporate career, teaching private yoga is so tangible; there’s so much listening, observation and even creativity involved, that I feel, with each passing day, a mounting gratitude that I get to do this work.
Here are some recent testimonials I feel humbled to receive:
“For many years, my husband and I talked about taking yoga but felt intimidated. We started working with Catherine last Spring twice a week until we moved back to the East Coast in late December. She changed our perspective by challenging us very gently. We saw progress by the third week of class. She became aware that each of us have different abilities and limitations. Catherine tailored each session to our needs. For almost twenty years, I’ve suffered from sciatica and other orthopedic issues. To my total amazement, I began to feel better as my flexibility began to improve. Catherine is extremely generous with her time. We had one hour sessions but she always stayed longer. She is very clear in her explanations and demonstrations and follows up after each session with a recap and pictures. Thanks to Catherine, we’re able to attend class at an intermediate-advanced level.”
“Catherine is a wonderful teacher and a kind, calming soul. I was in LA for a few days on vacation and took a private yoga class with her on the beach. I’m transitioning to a new job so I wanted a session to clear my head, calm my mind, and prepare me for the next phase of life. She took me through a great practice and a wonderful meditation at the end. I’d highly recommend her.”
“Catherine is an incredible teacher and has reminded of the things that I love about yoga! Her practice is the perfect balance between relaxing and challenging. It’s always a great work out! I found that it has positively influenced other areas of my life too – better focus, creativity, the ability to take things as they come and be more patient with others and myself.”
If you are curious about starting to practice yoga, recovering from illness or injury, or just looking to reboot your practice, consider hiring a private yoga instructor.
Feel free to contact me.
If I can’t help you, I can probably refer you to a great instructor who can.
