Trainer Bio

Owner, RYT 500, E-RYT 200, YACEP, Tier 2 Certified Baptiste Yoga Educator

Cat began practicing yoga in 2006 at Santa Monica Power Yoga in Los Angeles. She returned to her hometown of Louisville, KY in 2010 and immediately immersed herself in the yoga community. She received her first 200-hour teaching certification from Yoga East in 2011 and flirted with a variety of yoga styles, mainly Ashtanga yoga, before discovering Baptiste Power Vinyasa yoga through podcasts. Cat met Sarah Smith, a certified Baptiste Instructor, in 2013, and the two immediately started planning Louisville’s first dedicated power yoga studio, 502 Power Yoga. Cat participated in 502PY’s inaugural teacher training under Sarah, receiving her 2nd 200-hour teaching certificate. Cat attended Baptiste Institute’s Level One training in Phoenicia, NY in Summer 2014 and Level Two in Summer 2015, receiving her 3rd 200-hour teaching certificate, and achieving Baptiste Certification in Spring of 2016. Cat is regularly expanding her knowledge base through continuing education with the Baptiste Institute, Asheville Yoga Center, Yoga East, and more, and is a committed yoga practitioner.

Cat brings humor, compassion, and possibility to her powerful classes. She loves sharing the power of the Baptiste Methodology with her students and witnessing their transformations on and off their mats.

When not doing something yoga-related, Cat can be found chasing around her daughter, Samantha, camping and hiking around the area with her husband, drawing and painting, and cooking (mostly) healthy food.
