We Love Cathy

Cathy is a ray of sunshine every time we see her. We are so honored that she has been practicing with us for the last 4 years! Cathy explains how her yoga practice has had many more benefits than she ever expected. Keep reading below to see how yoga has changed Cathy’s life.

What do you love about yoga?

So much! My heart rate slows as soon as I step on the mat, and the feeling of contentment when I’m done is really hard to put into words…but I’ve grown to love it and want more of it!

How has yoga and meditation changed your life?

I’m a work in progress with both, but yoga has made an incredible difference in numbness I’d been feeling in my feet for the last couple years. Different instructors mentioned that they thought that indicated a pinched nerve in my lower back…all I know is, the more often I get on the mat…the better and better my feet feel! There’s also a calmer feeling as I contend with everything going on in the world right now, and if I miss a few days, the difference in my inner calm is measurable.

Why do you practice at Bella Prāṇa?

It’s close to home, but even if it wasn’t…the welcome you receive as soon as you step in is wonderful, and the obvious love and dedication that the instructors bring to each class makes each of them a special time…so, well worth a drive if I had to!

What is your style of class to attend?

I’ve just moved to Flow 1 and am loving the challenge, but also love Gentle, Yin and Restorative.
