We Teach Pre-habilitation over rehabilitation -- Cathy's passion is to empower people to learn how to operate and maintain their own "analog" bodies and over-worked, over-stressed minds in this 21st century world with tools that will assist them in finding optimal physical and mental performance inside and out with motivation and inspiration to get their “GAME ON” attitude back in life! Let's face it...Pre-habilitation is empowering and fortifying...fixing your broken self...not so much!
What You'll learn: Cathy provides the education and accessible resources in her classes, workshops and retreats to teach people how to dissolve pain and constrictions, increase mobility and sports performance, improve balance, re-ignite the deep core line and learn how to illuminate and resolve body blind spots which are weakened areas that often become catalysts for future injury. BUT the REAL COOL STUFF happens when you learn how to kick stress in the gluteus maximus, when you find you are sleeping better, have more mental clarity and focus, when you can let the craziness of life roll off your shoulders finding a whole lot more ease and happiness in your life. THAT'S THE GOOD STUFF!
