How it works

 

$

We start with a free discovery call to pinpoint where you are now, where you want to go, and what’s standing in your way. We get to know each other, and you can ask any questions to make sure that we’re the right fit.

$

We’ll meet on Zoom for our coaching sessions, where we’ll create and implement a clear plan tailored for you to help you reach your wildest goals.

$

I’ll help you move towards your goals, hold you accountable, and support you along the way. Step by step, you are going to make your dreams come true.

What you can expect

 

$

For three months, we meet weekly on zoom. We will gradually work towards your goals by using yogic tools like postures (asanas), breath work (pranayama), meditation, mindfulness and mindset work.

$

Our online sessions can be a flowing physical yoga practice. We look at postures (asanas) you like to learn or struggle with by dissecting them to understand the approach needed to practice safely.

$

The sessions might also be conversational from time to time if you have questions you would like to discuss. Anything you need at that moment to enable you to move forward. Sometimes we need a push to stay motivated on our path.

$

If you wish, I will give you a bit of homework between our sessions. Depending on your schedule and goals, these could be drills for building strength, readings, or questions for self-reflection.

Reading in Baddha Konasana

Don’t take my word for it, read what my students have to say

“When I move down to London in 2019 I attended my local yoga studio, where I met Catherine. At that time I was looking at changing my exercise regimen and yoga seemed like an interesting thing to try. I found Catherine to be a very motivational teacher, being both highly experienced and very approachable.

When the COVID lockdown happened I decided that I’d like to get more involved in learning yoga and asked Catherine to start giving me some ‘one to one’ coaching. That turned out to be one of my better ideas as she really helped with my understanding of the more technical aspects of the art: including, Ujjayi breathing, Bhandas and Kapalbhati pranayama. In addition I have a bad knee and Catherine was able to introduce exercises into our sessions to help strengthen the muscles around the joint. She is really very good at gently but firmly encouraging you to improve the quality of your practise and extend your range of movement.

In summary, Catherine is an outstanding yoga teacher. She is warm, focused, knowledgeable and very positive. I would recommend her unreservedly to both novices (like me) and experienced practitioners.”

— George Boulden

“I first met Catherine while attending her «Yoga for strength & balance» class. I immediately loved the energy and the rhythm of the class: it was intense, yet very fun, we had time to work on challenging asanas and Catherine’s explanations and tips were amazingly useful. So very quickly I started to take private lessons with her.

I have been taking 2 to 3 privates a week with Catherine for the past 8 months now. In this short period of time, I have learnt all kind of arm balances and became very comfortable with inversions. She also taught me handstand until I could hold it straight for 30seconds. Alongside these, she helped me improve my flexibility a lot: I can do the split and my back bends are much better and she made me build a lot of strength as we worked on advanced inversions/arm balances transitions.

Catherine has a solid Ashtanga background. Ashtanga is such an intense practice I cautiously stayed away from it for years… but, Catherine’s asana level and her mindset made me want to give it a go. So I asked her to introduce me to the World of Ashtanga and I loved it! Since then she has been guiding me through my ashtanga practice as well. Her insight, experience and knowledge just make it way easier for me to progress. I am now practising daily in a mysore style environment.
Catherine tips are gold: always very precise, it’s like she knows all the tricks. I guess through 20 years of daily self practice and teaching, she has seen it all!

The bonus of having such an experience teacher, is that she will know what and how to modify your practice if you have an injury, and what to do to improve your condition. I had chronic migraines when doing any back bends or lifting my head back, but these are completely gone now. I thought drop backs were not in the domain of the possible for me due to my neck… but it is absolutely not an issue anymore!

Practising with Catherine has completely changed my Yoga practice. It is now much more advanced, much more precise and the more intense the asana practice, the deeper is my internal journey. So she has changed my life completely. Well, Ashtanga did, but that’s on her!

I couldn’t recommend her more, she is a gift. She is fun, energetic, and she sees more in you than you will ever do. If you practice with her, you will do in a few months things you never even dreamed of, and your body will feel light, strong and pain free again. Every one who gets to practise with her is fortunate.”

— Marion Houlet

“I was unlucky to have a vertical impact from a pothole I hit on my motorbike. It left me with no movement without excruciating pain in my lower back, which also radiated into my legs as sciatica. An MRI showed that I had a chronic condition of the spondololytic spondylolistheses and foraminal narrowing and nerve roots impingement. Simply put, the acute pain was due to misalignment of my spine and the impact forced the disc to protrude, resulting in more compression. My only option from what I was told was injections and surgery to fuse the vertebrae, Catherine suggested yoga therapy instead. So I gave it a try.

Catherine helped me understand how to move safely during my daily life, set up my workplace (I am an artist/sculptor), lift things, and set myself up for sleep without pain. I became aware of my old movement patterns, which added to my chronic pain. We adjusted them, so I move more freely again. I developed a new understanding of my body and a deeper awareness of its responses. I learnt which movement to avoid initially until I got better.

Catherine gave me daily homework. With gentle yoga exercises, incredibly the pain started to subdue, and I was able to build up strength and mobility to support my lower back. Catherine developed a program for me, which I practise now whenever I feel my back could benefit from it.

She also worked with me on reducing my stress, as with the above diagnosis, I was scared of not being able to live my active life anymore. So she added relaxing exercises, Yoga Nidra and breathing exercises to calm my mind and relax my body have been of great use as tools to keep the rest of myself supported.

Within a couple of months, the pain subdued, and today, I can ride my motorbike for hours and go snowboarding and kiteboarding again. It feels incredible having my life back. I now know my body better, I am aware of the signs triggered by stress or extended sitting before it’s too severe… plus now thankfully I have tools to take care of it!

I trust Catherine 100%, she is so knowledgeable, and I felt totally comfortable and safe with her.”

Pincha Bakhasana

Let’s do this!

On my yoga journey, I had to overcome many obstacles. I needed courage to change physically and mentally. And I know the value of reaching out and finding support along the way.

Finding depth and improving our practice, we often are confronted with limiting beliefs about what is possible. When we change our perspective, we allow ourselves to reach our potential, to grow beyond what we thought was possible.

I look back over more than 20 years of yoga teaching experience in all its forms. Through the yogic tools of asanas (posture), pranayama (breathing), meditation, mindfulness and knowledge/wisdom, we can learn, heal, grow and evolve. Additional to my extensive yoga trainings, I am also a fully qualified yoga therapist.
