Catherine Nelson-Reid

About The Teacher

Catherine holds over 1800 hours of formal Yoga training and was the Studio Director and guide for many years of the Bodhi Tree Yoga Centre in Calgary, Alberta. Together these have gifted her with a multifaceted perspective of Yoga, its practices and teachings, and also what is to be human. From 2003 and to this day, she continues to be a committed student on the Yoga path.

Catherine’s daily practice is one of sitting with herself to check in, to step back, and see what is sincerely guiding her, to bear witness to what is steering the vehicle of her being in each moment and each experience. She brings this spaciousness to her work with private students and as a Yoga Life Coach. Compelled by the call to service, Catherine’s compassionate heart infuses each of her offerings. The private practices she creates allow students to experience their own light and love.


Akhanda trained teachers have had a tremendous impact on Catherine’s approach and understanding of Yoga, and she was blessed to finally meet and begin study with Yogrishi Vishvketu in 2008. Catherine is excited to be teaching on the Akhanda Yoga Life Coaching course alongside Prem Robin Campbell at Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram.

Why Retreat?

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
