"I met Cathy on her yoga retreat in Portugal. I was feeling lost after big changes in my life - giving up my dream job for love, becoming a mom, moving to another continent, etc., so I needed some help to find a way to restart my life. Although I didn't know what to expect in her session exactly, I felt that I could trust Cathy at the very first sight." Akiko Ishibashi Japan/Denmark --- "I have had the joy and privilege to attend Cathy’s yoga classes numerous times in Ireland and in Thailand. I love her way of teaching. Not only my body, but my whole being feels strong, balanced and open afterwords. There is something special about learning yoga with some one who has done a lot of healing and spiritual work. With her loving and strong presence Cathy brings a special energy into the class where you can open and expand. You do your self a favor by attending Cathy’s classes, or even better - doing a longer retreat with her." Johanna Harmala, owner of Living Forest, Lake Arenal Retreat center, Costa Rica
