Cathy has been practicing yoga for thirteen years and teaching for ten. She completed her Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Sanctuary under the instruction of Cynthia Funk and Jonathan Austman. From there she continued to seek out the teachings of many internationally well-respected teachers. In 2006, she studied with Paul Grilley and began to take a serious interest in learning more about acupuncture and Chinese medicine. This was the first time she had experienced the integration of both Chinese medical theory and yoga and became hooked. This inspired Cathy to pursue a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection and an interest in complimentary therapies. Since then, she has completed over 2600 hours of study in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and received her acupuncture diploma in 2008.
Cathy’s belief is that Yin Yoga is the perfect practice to integrate both the wisdom of yoga with the knowledge of meridian theory. Her interest and love of combining these two ancient healing modalities keeps her inspired and motivated to keep learning.
Cathy is currently a member in good standing with The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO) and Yoga Alliance.
