Meet Cathy Yonaitis

Cathy began her exploration of yoga in 2002 after her second child was born. During her first class she felt  Her soul open and immediately felt like she had "come home".  Since then she has remained a dedicated student and practitioner of yoga. She has studied with many fine teachers.  Terry Brown (who certified her in her 200 and 500 hour training), Suzanne Newton, Doug Keller, Rodney Yee, Iyengar teachers, and  Baxter Bell. She also has a degree in Occupational Therapy, and worked for 12 years at Moses Cone Hospital in the rehabilitation department, and 4 years in long term care. She has provided therapy and healing modalities to many different people with neurological, orthopedic, and general conditions throughout her service at the hospital. Her understanding of the anatomy and the human body and processes of healing inform her teaching.  Her compassion and tenderness also allow people to feel safe and cared for in her cozy studio, or during private lessons. Her students feel loved and nurtured in her class. We also laugh a lot too! Come check out your new yoga studio and sweet community here.
