My name is Cathy Daley. My goal is to help your body, health, and mind reach their peak potential. My focus is on Integrative Yoga Therapy. With Integrative Yoga Therapy, I do not simply help you realign a foot or lengthen your spine. Instead, I invest the time to understand your specific needs as an individual. I learn more about your specific health conditions. And then I create a student-centered program for you, with me acting as a facilitator to bring you toward a personal awakening. I help you find your true self and your source of wellness. You will develop a harmonious connection with your body, mind, and spirit.
Over the years I have studied many forms of yoga in order to draw the benefits from each. These include Iyengar, YinYoga, Vini Yoga, Anusara and Meditation, and more. I have integrated the very best features of each style into an integrated whole which will draw out your best. My diverse experience means I can tailor your session based on your individual set of challenges and goals.
I have a wealth of experience in working with students of all backgrounds and physical abilities. I have been teaching yoga since 2007 and was certified as a Professional Yoga therapist in 2010. I founded Alive With Yoga, a yoga studio in Sarasota, Florida. I am a practicing yoga therapist who specializes in orthopedic issues, chronic pain, and stress-related issues.
Whatever your level and ability, I will find the ideal way to bring the healing powers of yoga into your world. Yoga fosters the ability to slow down and stay present. It encourages a mindful state which can lift people emotionally, spiritually, and physically. All of these are critical for building and maintaining good health.
In my own life yoga is one of the greatest gifts I’ve received. It not only enhances health and vitality, but it also brings lasting inner peace, happiness, and wellness. It has always been my intention to provide a setting where it would be easy for everyone to experience Yoga’s life-enhancing benefits regardless of their age, health or situation in life.
I look forward to bringing the healing power of yoga into your world.
I am trained and registered as a Professional Yoga Therapist through Integrative Yoga Therapy Institute. This requires 500 hours of Integrative Yoga Therapy and 200 hours of Kripalu/Hatha Method. I am also registered as a Certified Yoga Therapist through International Association of Yoga Therapists.
