Her yoga classes are fantastic

"Having Cat around is wonderful. :) She has such a positive attitude to share. Her yoga classes are fantastic.
Being part of her retreat at Vida Pura in April 2018 was a wonderful experience. I can recommend 100% - we had a great time."

A truly memorable experience

"Catarina is a wonderful teacher, she hasn't yet got many years of teaching experience under her belt but she makes up for it by being enthusiastic, humble, and always eager to share what she learnt from her own instructors! She has a strong personal practice which informs her teaching. She is knowledgeable both in the "trendy" fast-paced vinyasa style (mandala/rocket yoga) and in the meditative yin style, which she complements with her knowledge of acupressure. I was lucky to attend her retreat at Vida Pura, an excellent retreat centre in Portugal, Algarve, where she lives. A truly memorable experience even for me who has attended retreats in some very well-known centres and studios. A real treat."

Perfect yoga classes in Portugal

"Catarina is a great yoga teacher. I had one to one sessions with her in Portugal and learnt a lot from her. I enjoyed her classes and her teaching style, she is very friendly and helpful. She always considered what was best for me as a cyclist with a knee injury and she runs the classes with a perfect balance between body and mind. Thank you Catarina! Very much looking forward to the next time."

Very calm and relaxed teacher!

"Catarina has a very calm and relax way of teaching. When teaching hard poses always show a easier way for beginners but always having in mind the more advanced people!"
