Catherine Sullivan

Catherine's yoga journey began at university, as a physical practice to compliment her dance training. She discovered the classes energised her from within and she felt positive ripples throughout her life. Her wish to explore the practice more deeply led her to undertake her initial teacher training graduating in 2009.

​Catherine taught in various locations throughout Melbourne before crossing the bridge and moving to the thriving western suburbs with her family. Once there, she opened Yoga Moves West in 2015 with a desire to share the many benefits she has experienced through yoga to her local community.

 

Catherine's yoga passions are teaching vinyasa flow, chair yoga and meditation and through kind thoughtful instructions she encourages students to listen to their bodies and practice at their own pace as variations are given to suit the needs of different shapes and skill sets.

 

​​Catherine believes everyone, no matter their age, experience, and ability, can boost health and wellbeing from a regular yoga practice, and still passes on the wise words of an early teacher and mentor ...

"Whatever you do, yoga will help you do it better."
