Would love to hear from you with comments, questions or suggestions.
Cat Donovan, E-RYT, CYT
Please contact if interested in forming a customized class for your location.
NPA Coatings Inc. has been practicing with
Cat Donovan since November 2011. Cat
comes to our location and holds the class
during employee lunch breaks. She is very
accommodating for all levels of yoga
participants and takes the time to get to
know everyone. Many of our employees
have gone on to take classes at her studio
as well. I believe the employees that have
participated in her class have a much more
relaxed demeanor and overall feel better
after leaving class.

Personally, I have practiced with Cat at work,
at her studio and at her outdoor classes.
Her studio is a calming, welcoming
environment. Cat was even nice enough to
hold a private practice for my family and
bridesmaids the morning of my wedding; a
memory that I will never forget! I appreciate
Cat's calm presence and no-judgment

We have worked together over the years
and I am happy to call Cat my friend!

I began practicing yoga with Cat
Donovan in the fall of 2010 and have
been a regular student ever since. My
goals were to initially improve upper
body strength and balance. However,
over the ensuing years I've also found
that my self-confidence has improved,
my stress decreased and my body feels
better. Throughout, Cat has been an
excellent guide and inspiration thanks to
her skill, her passion and her empathy.
Yoga has changed my life for the better
thanks to Cat and Yoga West Studio.

I have been studying under Cat for 5
years now. I pretty much take all her
classes and workshops. I feel I am
always learning and growing no matter
how many times I do a pose or focus on
breathing. Yoga, thanks greatly to Cat,
has changed my life, it's changed me
and my out look on things, I am forever
indebted to Cat. My mat has become my
best friend and a source of calming. I
have clarity, flexibility and I genuinely
feel happier, lighter. I love yoga and it
will always be a part of me for all my
days. A big shout out to Cat though. You
MUST try her classes. No judgement
and the atmosphere is perfect. I would
never go else where.

Even though I have been practicing with
Cat for almost ten years, I almost
always learn something new each time I
attend one of her classes. Not only is
she very knowledgeable about the
many dimensions of this wonderful thing
we call yoga, she has an inviting
presence and is fun to be with. While, I
am now a yoga teacher myself, I'm still
learning from her. I have seen and
experienced her skillful interaction with
brand new yogis and others seeking a
more challenging practice. She is a
generous teacher, always willing to
answer a question and share her
