As of July 2020, I'm taking a break from teaching to regroup and reconnect with the elements in Hawaii. I'm utilizing this time to create, build, and launch Catherine Coe Yoga online classes and courses.
Below is my first online video EVER! With the power of vulnerability, leaning into fear and showing up, I explain how I arrived here. Yoga has given me this strength and I look forward to guiding you towards yours and much more.
Let's build it together! Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and sign up for my newsletter here.
HATHA Originating in India about 2000 years ago, Hatha is the traditional form of asana (posture) from which modern styles have emerged. It's a system designed to align body, breath, and mind. This steady practice focuses on alignment by holding poses for 5-10 breaths. The time allows for building strength, stamina, flexibility, and balance. Concentration and breath control are further improved through guided pranayama (breathing technique). The class may include classical Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations), arm balances, backbends, and inversions.
VINYASA Vinyasa is a dynamic yoga practice that cultivates presence by connecting movement with breath. Combining a mindful, steady pace of flowing transitions with static held postures increases strength and flexibility, as well as focus and mental clarity. This mix level class may include Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations), standing and seated postures, arm balances, inversions, pranayama, and meditation. Modifications are given.
YIN This passive, meditative practice promotes stillness and relaxation through long static held postures (4-7 minutes in my classes) while softening the muscles. Yin taps into fascia and the connective tissues (joints, tendons, ligaments) to create more space and flexibility. Yin invites you to slow down and get deep into your poses to cultivate a more intimate relationship with your body, breath, and mind.
