Regardless of your abilities, beginner or experienced,
man or woman, shape or size,
all are welcome.  
Classes are aligned with the traditional roots of yoga
and are accessible, challenging and uplifting.  This is
your place to tune in and chill out.  
I honor the love, truth and
kindness that is within you
because it is also within me. In
sharing these things there is no
distance or difference between us.
We are the same.  We are one.

Cat Donovan

My first and favorite teacher was my mother. As a
child, I watched her practice intriguing and beautiful
poses. I found physical and emotional relief as a yoga
student in the 1990s.  I committed to a practice and  
physical misalignments corrected and overuse
injuries healed. What wasn't anticipated was the
lifting of anxiety and dissipation of grief.  I could finally
breathe.  
I am grateful beyond words for whatever tiny role I
may play in helping students discover their light.  I
mean it with all my heart when I say, Namaste:
Yoga has changed my life, in different ways, over
and over again.  And, I've witnessed profound
changes in other people as their bodies rehabilitate,
minds open and hearts heal.  Must be something to
this life changing body/mind science.  Five
Thousand years isn't a fad.
 
I uncovered  strength, confidence and wisdom, and
found myself exploring things that at one time would
have been unthinkable.  In 2001, I
began teaching.   
I bring 14 years of teaching experience to my classes
and draw from a variety of yoga styles including
Vinyasa, Asthanga, Hatha, Kundalini, Tao, Yin and
restore as well as core strength based on principles of
Joseph H. Pilates.  My classes are also influenced by
many local, national and international teachers and
studios.   
Yoga is a practice which means that no one ever gets
to the top or graduates.  It is not a workout although it
has positive effects on the physical body, nor is it a
religion although it can help to connect to others and
to your higher power.  It is the way to tap into the
power that lies within and it is in that power where you
will find all that you are seeking.  Its only requirement
is that you roll out your mat and show up.  
In the words of Ashtanga Guru Pattabhi Jois,
"Pracitce and all is coming."
