Tune in to this weeks extra juicy, maybe controversial episode of yoga and….Botox? Is there vanity in the practice? Can you rock red lipstick and still be a committed spiritual yogi? The girls talk with special guest – Cathy Connors on her journey from psychology to yoga and how she found her way through her travels to India. Cathy talks about her upcoming workshops and trainings, as well as a special yoga & Botox experience taking place at her Awake yoga studio in El Dorado Hills. Listen now!
Dr. Cathy Connors loves yoga and has dedicated her life to sharing this powerful practice with others. She started her career as a psychologist and began her spiritual journey in her early 20’s. But it wasn’t until 2009 that she started teaching yoga and the practice “took over her life”. She took multiple vinyasa teacher trainings, opened a studio, and based on an “intuitive hit” traveled to India in 2014 for a kundalini teacher training with Kia Miller. It was there that she the first locked eyes with Master teacher Anand Mehrotra – tears filled her eyes and she knew she was home. Since that first visit she has traveled back to India 6 additional times to study the powerful practices of Sattva Yoga.
Her greatest joy is to teach. She loves combining the freedom of Vinyasa Flow with the power and grace of the Sattva Yoga Kriyas. She never quite knows what will arise when she teaches, but she trusts in the beauty of the moment, knowing it will be authentic, raw, connected, and full of grace.
She also loves creating community so when the name “Awake Yoga and Meditation Sanctuary” dropped into her mind during a meditation last year she knew without a doubt that it was her dharma to open AWAKE. She hopes that when you walk in the doors you feel welcomed, supported, uplifted, empowered and at home.
