My name is Cat, I’m from England but have been living in beautiful Peru for the last four and a half years. I left my office job in London for my “three-month trip” to South America in 2013, but fell in love with Cusco and never left.
Like many others I was drawn to the yoga practice initially for the physical exercise. I’ve always been a fitness and sports person, mainly running, cycling and netball, and I felt that yoga would complement this. My spiritual journey then began around three years ago, which is when yoga took on a different meaning for me and little by little took a more prominent place in my life. I started meditating, learning about personal development and focusing on how to bring more peace, balance and happiness into my life. Yoga began to play an integral part of this, and every time I was on the mat I felt a calmness and centeredness that resonated through my being.
After many years working in business analysis and management, both in the UK and Peru, I finally came to the conclusion there was something missing. Having studied mathematics, I’d convinced myself that I had to then pursue a related career. I limited myself to this for a long time, but since beginning on the spiritual path I started listening to and connecting with my inner voice, and realised there are no limits to what we can do, and must pursue whatever is it that makes our soul shine. This gave me the strength to dedicate myself exclusively to yoga. I completed my 200-hour teacher training in the Sacred Valley here in Peru with Inbound Yoga, and now want to share the practice with others. I like to teach a mixture of energising vinyasa flow and also yin-style classes.
Someone once told me that even if they don’t know it, the reason people come to a yoga class is to be lifted up. This is what I remember and focus on in every class I teach, and is the motivation behind what I do.
TRAINING & CERTIFICATIONS
Donation Based Yoga Classes
What are donation based classes?
Donation based classes are yoga classes offered by a new or experienced teacher, to the public, with the intention of sharing what the teacher knows with as many people as possible, regardless of social or financial class.
How often will YogaWasi offer donation based classes?
This week, YogaWasi is offering three donation based classes. There was one today, Monday. There is another on Friday at 12 PM and Sunday at 10 AM.
For the rest of the month, a donation based class is offered to the public every Sunday at 10 AM. The teachers of YogaWasi will share the responsibility (karma yoga) for these classes, so the teacher teaching will rotate in and out. Please tell your friends :) ANYONE is welcome, including YogaWasi students. If you are a student with a class pass, please feel free to donate a little instead of using your class pass.
What do I need to bring with me?
Please arrive to class 15 minutes before the class begins. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a smile and excitement with you.
Suggested donations are 10 soles, but the teacher is happy to accept whatever you can spare for his/her time, energy and effort.
