A Little More About Me

My name is Catherine, pronouns are they, them. I identify as being queer and fluid in my existence.  I came to yoga & movement as a healing practice through the world of dance. I am a survivor of Sexual Violence, Trauma and Domestic Abuse. The journey began purely with wanting to heal myself. Through the years, I began to use movement, ritual and education to heal not just myself, but others as well. I attended Wheaton College, and later Brown University on Wampanoag Territory (Providence, RI) studying Theater & Africana Studies with a focus in Ritual & Pre-Antebellum North America, where I also learned about Viewpoints work. I then moved on to an Education Internship at Trinity Repertory Company and continued to teach various classes from Theater Education to Dance & Movement. I then participated in months long internships on Lenapehoking (NYC) in yoga and movement studios (And Yoga Studios/Anya Yoga Studio) and finally received my 200HR RYT Yoga Certification in 2017 from Jai Yoga Arts. During this time, I volunteered and worked in abortion work with Planned Parenthood and unofficially assisted both abortions and births, simply as a support person for friends. Through this I found my calling. I am currently enrolled in a Full Spectrum Doula Training with Birth Advocacy Doulas, to be certified to assist in the Full Spectrum of Birth, Abortion, Bereavement & Postpartum. I am currently attending East West College of the Healing Arts in a 15 month Massage Therapy program and will be a Licensed Massage Therapist as of next year!
