Cathie feels blessed to be able to combine her love of teaching (taught in the schools as a Speech Pathologist for 35 years and is still teaching at Nova Southeastern University) with her love of Yoga. Although Cathie discovered Yoga "later in life," she acknowledges that many prior activities- including playing tennis, running, and weight lifting, have led her to this "perfect place!" When the first Yoga One teacher training was offered by Dar and Steve, Cathie seized the opportunity and feels it was one of the best decisions of her life (second to marrying Ricky, her husband of 48 years, of course!) She was hired to teach "Gentle" Yoga the week that she turned 70, making that "milestone" birthday all the sweeter!
The skinny on Cathie: nicknamed “Chatty Cathie” for a reason, she loves to talk…….but she’s a great listener as well. Inversions are her passion……she can even talk while upside down!
Teaching Yoga Since: 2014
Trained in: Hatha yoga
Cathie’s Teachers: Dr. Steve and Darlene Feinzig
