Cat's practice and teaching has been influenced by everything from Ashtanga and Iyengar, to yin yoga and mindfulness. An E-RYT with Yoga Alliance, her teaching balances respect for yoga tradition with a scientific understanding of anatomy and biomechanics to keep students safe, and educate them on how to make the practice work for their body. Her dharma is to help ground people into their body and create space to let the teachings of yoga unfold from there.

Cat's approach weaves together a focus on foundations, mindfulness, playfulness and highlights the ways this physical practice translates off the mat. Expect to journey through a carefully crafted sequence designed to create warmth, space, and balance in the body, mind, and heart.

On social media, she shares her practice journey and her popular #overachieversguidetoyoga posts are devoted to breaking down foundational poses in a clear way so anyone can approach them in their practice. She is a natural teacher grateful for the opportunity to lead others on this journey and eager to share what she's learned.

When she is not teaching yoga or preparing to teach yoga, Cat is spending time with her clever 4-year-old son Grayson in San Diego. She enjoys getting into nature, reading, dancing, and spending quality time with loved ones.
