Our Teachers


Catherine began practicing yoga in 1989 while living in New York City. She spent several years exploring different yoga traditions with many master teachers, notably in the Iyengar tradition. Her exploration led to her passion for the Ashtanga practice, which she learned under the guidance of senior teachers Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty. She has also studied with Ashtanga guru Sri. K. Patthabhi Jois in Mysore, India.

Catherine was trained to teach at YogaWorks in Santa Monica, California, by the Teacher Training program creators Maty Ezraty and Lisa Walford. After teaching for YogaWorks for several years she began leading Teacher Trainings for YogaWorks in 2003. She continues to lead teacher trainings for YogaWorks internationally.

Catherine’s vinyasa based classes focus on physical alignment and intelligent sequencing, and are infused with passion and inspiration for the practice of yoga. Catherine combines a tough-minded approach with genuine compassion and caring for the individual student. Her hope is that through the practice, students can learn to transition through some of life’s challenges with strength and introspection.
