Yin and flow with Catherine this morning was perfect! Great heart and hip openers, followed by a strengthening and satisfying yoga flow.
A proud and strong advocate for “empowerment” over “improvement,” Giva embraces yoga as a tool for personal growth, clarity and acceptance. An educator, writer and personal counselor by trade, she added yoga to her scope of self-love vehicles.
A self-proclaimed “wanderer,” Giva came to yoga out of sheer curiosity and was immediately drawn in by the calming, cleansing and rejuvenating effects of the practice. A confessed perfectionist, she leaves her expectations off the mat and instead embraces her practice as is, a philosophy she encourages her students to take as well. Her classes place great emphasis on body awareness and the connection between breath and movement. Her goal is for her students to leave class more empowered, relaxed, self-aware... and happy.
