What people are saying

"Kundalini Yoga & Meditation has completely changed my life! Although I had attended many yoga classes previously, I was amazed at how calm-yet-energized I felt after my first Kundalini Yoga class. I love that we are encouraged to practice with our eyes closed in order to focus on our inner experience, and the group chanting creates an uplifting group energy that is unlike anything I've experienced elsewhere in my life. I leave every class feeling as if all my "load has been lightened" and I look forward to experiencing the next class!" ~ S.S., Minneapolis

Your physical
body is an amazing vehicle that allows you to experience and create the reality
of your day-to-day life
. With each breath you take your body is animated with that
mysterious, magical “breath of life” that connects you with your spirit.
Every
movement you make expresses and creates where you are in the moment and where
you desire to go. And every moment of the day your thoughts create the quality
of your experience
. Body, mind and spirit are inextricably linked in this beautiful
dance, and
this retreat is an opportunity to slow down, pay attention to your
body/mind and deepen your relationship to your own experience of spirit in
yourself, others and the beauty of nature around you.
Because your
body is designed to continually do what it can to protect itself and maintain
health, it continually makes adjustments to rebalance and support you as you go
about your day.
Yet most people rarely take the time to listen to the quiet
intelligence and subtle messages from their body.
We are trained from early
childhood to ignore and override these messages. And we end up in pain feeling
that our body has betrayed us – or that it is “broken” and can never enjoy that
sense of freedom and ease that we had when we were children. We end up
continually trying to “fix” our body without pausing to deeply listen to the
messages it has to share with us and the wisdom it contains.
We look outside
for ways to feel better when the answer actually lies within our own body-mind awareness.
During
our 3 days together you will journey into the territory of how your own, unique
stories and perceptions show up in your body and mind. Using mindful movement principles
you will:
-        notice how thoughts and
emotions interact to influence your ability to be creative and healthy
-        practice connecting with the intelligence of your own body as a
source of support in creating health, calmness and a sense of resiliency.

Take this time
to come home to the sacred vessel of your body.
I look forward to sharing this transformative journey with you.
~Catherine

what people are saying

In the past few years, I have taken several Kundalini yoga classes from Catherine, as well as workshops and the Yoga Your Way sessions. Catherine's approach is unique in that she combines a wealth of knowledge of how the body works with techniques that encourage holistic physical and emotional health. In her Kundalini classes, I've learned where and how the mind and body hold stress and how to gently release it to bring more energy, joy and contentment in my life. She is a teacher with great compassion and awareness; and the the teachings I've learned from her classes have been invaluable in changing how I approach my yoga practice and health.
