Catherine is a New Jersey based 200-hour ERYT specializing in vinyasa and SUP yoga. With a background in dance, Catherine naturally connected with yoga when she discovered the practice as a teenager. At 21, Catherine completed her 200-hour teacher training program under Yoga Alliance and began teaching full-time. Since then, she has taught at various studios all across the state. Her students extend from North Jersey to the Jersey Shore and she is grateful for every single one of them. Ready to put her own yoga roots down, Catherine opened Yoga + Barre Haven, a free spirited yoga community in Hunterdon County. Opening those doors has changed her life, as well as many others. Being a water baby at heart, Catherine still continues to teach at the Jersey Shore and spends any free time on her paddle board. This inspired her to complete her most recent training program as a SUP (stand up paddle) yoga teacher. Practicing on water, in nature, has been Catherine’s greatest teacher yet. There’s a lesson in every ripple of water. In the wind. In every sunrise and sunset. Catherine’s classes are fun and accessible to everyone. The environment is peaceful and non-judgmental. She incorporates creative sequencing and deep breathing, all to good music. Her purpose in life is to inspire. Spread love. Spread peace. And to find a deeper purpose in everything that she does.
