Certified Yoga Instructor
Hometown: Halifax, NS
Cat Downie began practicing yoga over 7 years ago in search of a physical challenge and an excuse to practice handstands. But it wasn’t until she travelled to India for a research project that she truly began her yoga journey. In 2010 she completed an Ashtanga Yoga Immersive Practicum and Indian Religion & Philosophy course in the Himalayas of India. The seed was planted and for the next 5 years Cat continued to practice with a focus on Ashtanga yoga and completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with In Balance.
Her background in gymnastics and dance influences her practice and her work in anthropology and religious studies continues to inspire a deep appreciation for yogic philosophy and spirituality. She still loves to play upside down but now it is with mindfulness and appreciation of the ancient tradition.
