Meet our fabulous new cover teachers at Yoga on Rochford, Erskineville

As you may know I am off to Berlin this week for four months to teach yoga and to take part in Jivamukti and Astanga intensive training and mentoring programmes. We are really fortunate to have two world class teachers to cover the Yoga on Rochford classes in my absense.

Dynamic Vinyasa, Mondays 7:30 – 8:30pm with Cath

“I’m interested in making yoga accessible to everyone – whatever their level of ability.”

My approach to yoga is to remain in the moment and accept how I feel physically and mentally. That might mean practicing an asana to alleviate a physical ailment, or focusing on postures that will help me deal better with a stressful situation. It’s important to practice without expectations or judgment. I try to honor the way I’m feeling and be open to that state changing. I practice yoga because it makes me feel good and helps me connect to my spirit – it helps me to be the best me I can be!

More about Cath

Cath completed her teacher training at Samadhi Yoga and travelled to India where she studied Tibetan Buddhism. On her return, she completed her YogaSynergy Teacher Training and YogaSynergy Anatomy & Physiology Course. She has attended workshops by Clive Sheridan, Donna Farhi, Glen Ceresoli and Simon Low.
