About Cath


Hi. I’m Cath and this is my story.

I grew up in a farming family on the central western plains of NSW, Australia.

Drawn to the caring professions, I trained in nursing, midwifery, women’s health and counselling, developing a strong interest in holistic health.

My love affair with yoga began in my 30’s when I attended my first yoga class. Over time I learnt that simple yoga practices calmed my anxieties, my self doubts and built an inner strength and resilience.

Wanting to know more about the ancient art of yoga I trained to be a Yoga Teacher and went on to develop specialist classes with pre & post-natal women. In recent times I’ve begun to focus more on the relaxation response and offer classes with Dru Yoga & Meditation and Restorative Yoga.

Now, entering the Crone Age, I prefer to take time to pursue personal longings - travelling, creative writing, ceramics, cooking, reading. My yoga teaching is now very much part-time with blocks of classes sprinkled throughout my calendar.

I now live in Beechworth, Victoria with my partner Chris, our cat Deva and four chooks. My favourite pass time is swinging in the hammock in our beautiful yard with a spicy book and a freshly brewed chai.

Are you stressed and tired?

Do you find there is no ‘me’ time in your week?

Would you like to feel calmer and happier?

In our busy, demanding world there is little time to be quiet and still.

Current research shows that chronic stress floods the body with adrenaline and can lead to severe illness.

So why not choose to take the foot off the accelerator, and learn to unwind and relax?

There is every chance you will feel happier, think more clearly and have more energy.
