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

what people are saying

Here's why I would recommend this workshop: Catherine does a great job teaching how important our feet are in everyday life. I learned many ways to engage my feet and ankles and have continued to do the exercises and consult the materials. I can tell a real difference in how my feet move and can see a change in my toes. I learned a lot and am much more aware of my feet. ~Sara M., Minneapolis, MN June 2019-------------------------------------The Footcare Clinic class is fabulous. Catherine's repertoire of training, healing gifts and commitment makes her an outstanding teacher. Her teaching style is clear and easy to understand and she find ways to make it enjoyable and practical. In this class one not only learns exercises to open up the energy channels via feet, but also becomes more body conscious and mindful. I thoroughly enjoyed her footcare class. EGS - MN June 2019

what people are saying

I had the extraordinary good fortune to experience a foot reflexology session based on Polarity Therapy teachings from Catherine Siri Sat Liska in early December 2018. It was truly the most beneficial healing hour I have spent in years. Catherine was fully present to my needs throughout our session. We worked in tandem to determine the right amount of pressure for her to apply to my feet and lower legs throughout the session. Catherine is both well trained and intuitive in recognizing the areas which need additional attention. When my session was complete I was amazed at how rejuvenated I felt energetically. Catherine also provided an additional exercise for me to practice daily to alleviate the tightness in my hips. It has been thoroughly helpful in renewed ease of movement. I literally experienced a sense of walking on new feet as I left her cozy healing office. I even remarked to her that it felt as though my feet had been retreaded during our session. I definitely plan to incorporate these sessions with Catherine into my personal practices for overall good health. I highly recommend this work for anyone who is looking to improve their overall health picture in 2019. Try it. You’ll like it! Teesie Vallero, Dec 2018

what people are saying

"I first saw Catherine for private sessions a number of years ago. I had been experiencing shoulder, arm, hand & hip pain from repetitive movement at work. As an Audiologist for over 30 years, I stand for long hours with my arms held up at ear level. I had been working with physical therapists and massage therapists to manage and eliminate the pain. Physical therapy and massage did significantly diminish the pain and discomfort, however, the relief was temporary. Catherine taught me how to stand and hold my arms up in postures that no longer caused discomfort. I have practiced yoga since the 90’s and she incorporated language and postures that were familiar to me, demonstrating how I could practice yoga at work utilizing postures and breath work that supported my ability to perform repetitive movements without creating discomfort and fatigue in my body. I continue to use her techniques and they continue to serve me well today. More recently I participated in Catherine’s Healthy Happy Hips & Pelvis class. Not only is Catherine an intuitive and generous teacher, she is a dedicated student who is a world traveler learning new techniques that she incorporates and shares with her students. When I create time to practice the techniques Catherine has shared, my body feels fabulous. There is a distinct difference between the days I practice and the days I don’t. I’m carving time out for practice more often as I love the way I walk, move & feel. I encourage you to do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one of Catherine’s many unique class offerings. Your body will thank you!" Dr. Jennifer Reynolds, Audiologist Woodbury, MN
