Catherine feels that understanding Ayurveda, the sister science to Yoga, is not only an extension of her scientific training, she feels Ayurveda provides the “missing link” between what we can achieve in Western Medicine and true physical, psychological and spiritual healing. Ayurveda translates from the Sanskrit as “Knowledge of Life” and it has been her training in Ayurveda that has helped Catherine re-establish balance and health in her life and in the lives of her clients. Catherine is also a Kripalu Certified Yoga teacher (KYTA-275hr). Catherine is a skilled teacher and lecturer and greatly enjoys giving Ayurvedic talks at Medical schools, Yoga Studios, and especially during Yoga Teacher Training programs.
