I am new to yoga and joined in an effort to stay flexible, fit, and get rid of a few aches. Every class is different, challenging but so rewarding. Cathie has many available props to help you learn the pose and get stronger, so that eventually you won't need the props. She makes sure that you work to your ability, wherever that might be. Cathie's knowledge is impressive and her dedication obvious. I also just started having her give me Thai massages which are helping with tightness in my shoulders. Cathie is the best!! Namaste!
