Catalina had issues with chronic pain in her shoulders and lower back because of immune disease. She was treated for a few years and one day in the doctor's office, her family doctor asked if she was aware of yoga. Catalina took her first yoga class more than 10 years ago, and in the first few classes she could not reach her feet. Shortly after her body began to change in positive ways, she was determined to spread the word to everyone. Catalina became a yoga teacher and started teaching the art and discipline of yoga to her students. She believes it is magical to see the results of one's yoga journey. Yoga for Catalina is a mixture of joy and gratitude. Every session that she teaches she expresses that she can feel her students "shining from inside out". Yoga is not only about the practice, it is about the new experience that you get every time you practice and the happiness that you feel when you become more in tune with your body and life.
