Cathie Frank: I graduated from a 5 month long residence teacher training program with Maria Garre, as a certified Prana Flow Yoga teacher on June 1, 2012 and have been teaching yoga in the Rio Rancho area ever since. I've also taken additional instruction with Shiva Rea, learned Sudarshan Kriya from the Art of Living and practiced Maha Kriya with them in local Satsangs, as well as being a student of Tantra Japa Yoga, studying under an Indian Master.
I'm continually amazed at the power of yoga practices in my life and my goal is to share knowledge of these practices with others. I have a variety of life experiences that lend to my maturity as a person and a teacher, and am still on the path of life long learning, always trying to expand my own practice. My goal as a yoga teacher is help each student get the most out of their yoga practice and to empower students for their own home practice. We don't have to resign ourselves to sit in a chair. We have the capacity to expand as we mature , so we can make the best of what we have been given, keeping ourselves mobile and fit as we age, and may actually gain in abilities that once seemed lost to youth and the highschool phys. ed. class.
I do not like not a rushed class atmosphere, so I strive to offer a challenging (not torturous) well paced class designed to bring maximum benefit to all parts of the body, instead of running in circles on a treadmill which targets only a few muscles groups. Yoga practices work every muscle in the body as well as reviving important subtle processes in the body that keep us vibrant and functioning at our best. Yoga helps us find the fountain of youth.
