Catherine has been practicing yoga since 1998 and has been teaching since 2006.
Prior to landing in Hoedspruit, she was engaged exclusively by an infamous IT entrepreneur for three years as his Yoga Teacher, Personal Trainer and nutrition adviser. She travelled the world and spent a lot of time in South Africa as a consequence. She fell in love with the African continent and finally feeling grounded, felt this was the place she wanted stay and root down after her global wanderings.
Before coming to teaching, she had a successful career as a corporate lawyer. While working in Japan, and soaking up the influences there, her fledgling yoga practice grew into her passion and it became an integral part of her life. This passion grew into a love for teaching and sharing that passion. Her natural tendencies are to favour dynamic movement and anything physically challenging.
Her foundations lie in the vinyasa flow style and the traditional practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa as taught by Sr K Patthabi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy. Many years teaching however has also brought to the fore the importance of finding balance with restorative and therapeutic practices combined with a strong focus on meditation.
Catherine teaches private, group and corporate yoga classes.
