From the fashion floors of Condé Nast in New York to the wooden floors of Sangyé Yoga School, Cat had officially traded in her Manolo Blahniks for a more ‘grounded’ approach to bare feet.  Cat is originally from New York City and has been calling London home since spring 2004. She feels very privileged and grateful to have been involved with the previous incarnation of Sangyé Yoga School (Jivamukti Yoga London) since its inception and manifestation in 2005. With sincere love and admiration, she thanks Manizeh and Danny Rimer for always seeing the best in her. After the 2005 teacher training, reluctant to teach, she convinced them to give her a “job” to help run the studio but they kindly encouraged her to serve in a greater capacity. Fast forward to present day… At the end of the day,  an ordinary yoga teacher who happened to pick up some titles along the way: Advanced Certified (Jivamukti), SYT (Senior Yoga Teacher – Yoga Alliance UK) and Co-Director of SYS alongside her husband Phil. LOVE & GRATITUDE: all the generous “teachers” from whom i have ever had the privilege to learn by example, the husband/teacher Phil, the parents, the ones who walked this path before, the students, sangyé sausages: the notorious biggie smalls and the incomparable Oscar Wilde…lastly, this precious human existence for the potential it holds.
