Catherine Sarni
RYT 500
Catherine Sarni began taking yoga classes as a way to strengthen her body and effectively deal with stress but has discovered so much more during her many years of practice. She has experienced yoga’s power as a health system and expanded her practice to include not only asana but also breath work, meditation, and the study of jyotish, mantra and yogic philosophy. Bringing a sampling of these to her classes, she provides students with an opportunity to experience yoga’s many gifts for mind, body, and spirit which they can bring out of the studio and into their lives. Catherine is a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 200, RYT 500 & YACEP) and considers her style to be a combination of several traditions. She has extensively explored the role of a regular yoga practice in maintaining bone density and offers workshops on this topic. Catherine has completed additional training in Yoga for Osteoporosis at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, and with Dr. Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall, co-authors of Yoga for Osteoporosis.

Her regularly scheduled classes include:
