Cathy Keenan Toronto, Ontario
Cathy has been practicing and studying yoga for over 10 years. Her introduction to yoga came about by chance when her father (an ordained Buddhist priest) painted The Yoga Sanctuary just before their doors opened in 1999.
After completing her yoga teacher training in 2003, Cathy continued to seek out the teachings of many internationally respected practitioners. It wasn’t until studying with Paul Grilley that she took a serious interest in learning more about acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In pursuit of a deeper understanding of the mind/body connection and an interest in holistic therapies Cathy has completed over 2600hrs of study in acupuncture and TCM and continues to study with many inspiring practitioners. Cathy has completed Bernie Clark’s 50 hour Yin Yoga teacher training in Vancouver.
Balancing an acupuncture practice with her teaching curriculum has been an amazing learning experience but nothing has taught Cathy more about the essence of yoga and being mindful than her 2 1/2 year old son, Ethan. Cathy enjoys threading her love and knowledge of TCM into her yoga classes to offer students a unique, refreshing and integrated practice
