Catherine has spent decades studying yoga, subtle energy, and mind body systems.

She is founder and CEO of Beyond The Pose, a resource for advanced training and certification for yoga teachers and yogis and author of the internationally bestselling book, Yoga, Midlife Pain Relief Secrets.

Her programs and classes focus on showing people how to personally leverage mind, body and spirit by combining the ancient modalities of yoga and meditation with the latest neuro technologies to find balance, strength and purposeful direction in their lives. She has distilled the most powerful practices into actionable formulas to help yogis take their yoga off the mat and into daily life to live authentically.

Catherine has studied energy healing, EFT, auric clearing, spent a year in shamanic apprenticeship, and has taught and practiced numerous styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Anusaura, Kundalini, and Kripalu and hot yoga. She received her initial 200 hour teaching certificate at NYC’s Sonic Yoga and her 300 hour at Soul of Yoga, Encinitas CA. She is certified with the Quantum Success Coaching Academy and combines all of these to offer an intuitive practice in her corporate, public and private classes and mentorships.

Originally from Chicago, she loves her midwestern roots. Her passion to explore contributed to her decision to move with her family to San Diego in 2007.
