About Me

Catherine has a deep love of body movement with a creative approach to yoga.

Trained to an advanced level of yoga teacher training with Jason Crandell, with additional trainings and workshops with Alexandria Crow, Annie Carpenter, Tiffany Cruikshank amongst others, all senior in their field and known as “teachers of teachers”.

Catherine teaches classes in some of London’s top studios, including Triyoga and East of Eden. She hosts workshops in London and the UK, retreats through the UK and Europe, and has taught yoga to premier league footballers and their youth teams. She teaches contemporary vinyasa flow style yoga, hatha, hot yoga, restorative, pre and postnatal, and has created A Fresh Approach – her own mentoring course for teachers – as well as a very comprehensive, Yoga Alliance accredited, 85 hour prenatal yoga teacher training course, which she hosts in London. She also mentors individual teachers on a one-to-one basis.

Catherine began her working life in the hairdressing industry – starting off as a junior, sweeping floors, running errands, working through an apprenticeship and beyond – before gaining a position with one of the leading global haircare and wellness brands, whose goal was sustainability and environmental leadership. Catherine had many roles over time within the company, and with each role she began to teach others. Although hairdressing seems worlds away from yoga, the teaching element was always there. The brand were innovative and well ahead of their time, introducing holistic speakers and meditation workshops for staff, and it was here that Catherine first learned about the Chakras, the subtle energy body, the benefits of being present, and first became introduced to Ayurveda and its concepts.

“I still know their mission statement, off by heart” she says, laughing!

These were her first steps towards yoga in the 90’s, and in all honesty she says “it just wasn’t the right class for me – I already did a lot of movement-based activity through dance and pilates, and I think I was looking for something else at that time”. Roll on ten years, with her world turned upside down and inside out – back on the mat, at the right moment, in the right class and with the loveliest teacher – the journey towards yoga and yoga teaching truly began.

Catherine says that the key thing yoga has taught her is to be present. She has a full life, a family that mean the world to her, and no matter how busy life gets at times, the tools of yoga continue to help her maintain her peace of mind.

“Catherine has enabled me to bring yoga into my daily life through classes and the movement hub. She has an incredible and insightful understanding of the body and breath, and the capacity to clearly communicate subtle movements. The mix of breath, strength, mobility, and flexibility work is so supportive and important for me as I sit most of the day for work. She also works with a lightness and humour that feels inclusive.”

“I love your classes Catherine, you explain everything so clearly and I finish up feeling calm and energised. You are a brilliant, caring and experienced teacher. x”

“Catherine’s classes have always been my favourite and more recently her Tuesday 6.30am has become my absolute non negotiable for my week. I love Catherine’s classes as I always feel like I am learning while working hard. Catherine never pushes you, she simply gives you the guides and the clear instructions of how to get to where you want, in that moment, and the best way for your body to be there. I always leave feeling like I’ve got exactly what I needed from practising with Catherine and I’m very grateful to her for that.”

“Without a shadow of a doubt I have learnt more from Catherine than any other yoga tutor, about how and why the body moves in, out and between yogic positions. Each session leaves one feeling strong, refreshed and balanced. The attention to detail and personal care is outstanding.

Catherine is an excellent teacher, being thoughtful, kind and compassionate to students -there are always options and opportunities for learning. Sessions can be challenging, fun, fast or slower paced, I always leave a class feeling that each session is prepared and delivered in great detail, movements are never predictable and always refreshing. Catherine creates a welcoming inclusive environment be it in class or on retreat. Thank you.”

“Catherine is the only yoga teacher that I follow!

I met her in 2018 when I trialed hot pod yoga for the first time and I have never been able to leave or miss her classes!
Since then I tried also joining her virtual and in person classes in other studios! Always great! I just love her!

Her passion and care are felt in any posture. Her classes are powerful, regenerative, always different and yet for everyone! she talks you through each pose in a calm and confident way and helps you being part of the full experience. She is my weekly dose of “me time”, a well-being habit that I treasure the most!”

“I have loved attending Catherine’s classes and workshops over the past few years, and one thing that always stays constant is Catherine’s warm welcome and positive energy. Catherine creates a friendly, inclusive environment in her teaching that means I am not afraid to push myself and give things a try, or to take it easy if that it what I feel I need. Either way I know that Catherine’s non-judgmental and intuitive approach will be supportive.

Catherine’s instruction seems deceptively straightforward, yet she places a strong focus on alignment and breathing which means I often progress further with asanas that I have found challenging (she has a way of sneaking you into them!). Catherine’s classes and workshops are creative, challenging and always interesting with great music. I was also lucky to have Catherine teach a disco yoga session at my hen party which was so much fun and went down really well with the group, it was a great start to the party.

I highly recommend Catherine’s classes and workshops, she is an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced teacher and I continue to enjoy learning a great deal from her.”
