26 April at 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join Cath in this balanced practice, incorporating the Yoga Synergy method, Restorative Yoga, Ortho-Bionomy self care and Mindfulness techniques.
An experiential workshop to support you in learning how your yoga practice can nourish your nervous system allowing for a deeper sense of inner calm and aliveness as a result.
Cath has great skill in making the practice accessible, safe and nurturing. Her formal training began with a Bachelor Degree in Dance, which is where she developed an interest for movement as a healing practice. In 2004 Cath immersed herself fully in the practice of yoga, completing teacher training in Sydney with Katie Manitsas and traveling to India to practice Buddhist meditation. On her return to Australia she began teaching full time and specialized sharing yoga to individuals with mental health challenges.
In 2007 Cath was invited to participate in an apprenticeship with Simon Borg- Olivier and Bianca Machliss of Yoga Synergy where she taught as a senior teacher for 12 years. The Yoga Synergy method is based on a deep and sound knowledge of anatomy and physiology, modern medical science and traditional hatha yoga. Practical and intelligently sequenced this approach can be adapted to each student’s changing needs.
Caths teaching practice has developed further through her studies in counseling, trauma informed principals, Restorative Yoga and Ortho-Bionomy bodywork. Her work fosters a deep respect for the intelligence of the body and each individual’s process of growing in resilience and embodied presence. She has completed trainings with Michael De Manicore, Janet Lowndes, Shirley Hicks, Edwina Kempe, Irene Lyon, Lizzie Lassater, Bruce Stark and Luann Overmyer.
Cath is excited to be now calling Hobart home. She is a qualified yoga teacher (1000 hrs) Ortho-Bionomy practitioner (500hrs) and counselor (Diploma). She works in private practice offering private yoga and Ortho-Bionomy as well as group classes, workshops and retreats. Her other great loves are nature, art and her dog Jasper.
