Hi, I'm Cathy

Thanks for taking the time to visit me at Universal Body Wisdom. I create workshops, classes and teacher trainings in the field of classical and contemporary yoga. I offer spiritual transformational retreats in magnificent places of natural beauty, healing sessions in Universal Body Wisdom and events because I want us all to thrive in this life time.   

I recently founded and directed The Celtic Woodland Yoga Festival in Ireland because I love bringing people together in powerful places around the world. 

After many decades of immersion in consciousness expanding practices, travel and the arts, I have come to understand how to work with Prana, the Life Force Energy, the Intelligence of The Universe…I wish to share this wisdom with you and help you unearth that same joyful incandescence within yourself. 

When Prana and Apana flow together through Sushumna - the central passage of the spine - to the top of the head, the experience of samadhi occurs; the goal of all yogic practice.


I educate others in private & group sessions in Universal Body Wisdom, a life altering process to expand your consciousness and liberate you from false identifications of the mind and disconnection from the body. During sessions of Universal Body Work™ you will often feel tingling sensations within your body as old holding patterns begin to let go. You may feel old hurts and pain surface in the moments before they are about to transform and release for good.

Over time you will learn the Art of Observer Consciousness, how to have greater emotional intelligence, how to take responsibility for yourself on all levels and how to express yourself in powerful and creative ways.


I offer Vinyasa Yoga, a method that syncs the movement of Prana within the breath to rhythmic movement and presence of mind. When we learn to access the deepest layers of the body it leads us to an understanding of the energetic aspects of life and the Universe. For over 15 years now I have taught people of every nationality all over the world, the common thread or theme that emerges is that we are all evolving towards being more human, more honest, more powerful and passionate. I value the importance of slowing down in a fast world and I love to share my explorations in Restorative & Yoga Nidra.

I have been involved in Yoga since 1996 and holds the Experienced Yoga Alliance Accreditation. I offer teacheShors & advanced practitioners short trainings to keep deepening their understanding of yoga.

Filming today✨this is such a new way for me to communicate my knowledge of yoga. While fixing my microphone wires today I had the thought “wtf! We never thought we’d be teaching like this all those years ago in yoga school” but we are yogis & the practice teaches is to adapt & change. Nothing stays the same for long. My years in film production are suddenly all merging with my teaching #celticwoodlandyogafestival #yogatechnique #yogastyle #yogapractice #yogateaching ... See MoreSee Less

Some days are good, & some harder. Let’s not underestimate the intensity of the last while, it might be easing for many people but the impact has still to be realised for others. Are you taking care of yourself? Taking time to appreciate Mother Earth & your relationship to her. What long lasting Postive impression will this leave each of us? We are all so unique & yet all of the same human family. #timeforchange #loveyourself #yogainspiration ... See MoreSee Less
