Mahabhuta: Come Home to Roost w/Cat McCarthy & Johanna Beekman

What's happening?

Come Home to Roost with Cat McCarthy ERYT-500 and Live Music with Johanna Beekman, (Align & Flow: All Levels): Rooster Stage

A roost is a place where birds settle to rest. Yoga is a similar practice of returning back to self, like a fertile home. In this asana class, you will explore pathways of self-connection, so that you can be more authentic in connecting with others. Awaken you inner rooster, get your nest in order, and train your empathy muscles to “simplifly” the coop.

Cat McCarthy, ERYT-500

What do The Three Stooges, four-leaf clover hunting, and wine tasting have in common? Yoga, according to Cat McCarthy. Whether telling a story on the silver screen or during class, Cat makes connections between everyday details and the big picture, weaving it all into a fun, poignant narrative. A dedicated yoga practitioner since 1993 and innovative educator/teacher trainer since 2002, Cat holds teaching certifications in Anusara Yoga, Kripalu Yoga, and The Barnes Method Prenatal Yoga and has studied extensively within the philosophical tradition of Rajanaka Yoga. Cat's facilitation in NVC (Non-Violent Communication) has helped bridge her conflict resolution skills to her yoga practice both on and off the mat. Mixing dynamic alignment and repatterning tools with a playful approach, Cat's guidance is informative and entertaining. When not traversing the globe to teach yoga, this Emmy-nominated filmmaker directs/produces non-fiction projects. For more info, please visit:
