‘Be the change’
Born on the Isle of Wight, Cathy left at 17 to study at The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. She went on to enjoy a career as an actress and dancer in Film and TV. During this time Cathy had a parallel career working within the fitness industry and discovered the healing benefits of Reiki and yoga.
It was after the birth of her two boys Cathy combined her skills and experience to set up a community minded business called Yoga4mums; supporting the mental health and physical wellbeing of mums during the various stages of their lives.
Today, Yoga4mums is a multi award winning business that provides classes, retreats and products to all age groups and abilities.

I’ve been teaching yoga for 15 years and my training was in the Sivananda tradition. I teach Vinyasa flow mainly now as I love the creativity of it.
I like to vary my classes and include teachings for self improvement based on yoga but in a way that meets modern day living. My focus is always to inspire students to live their best life and to get the most out of their yoga for strength and mobility.

A little bit about me…I love Energy! My passion in life is working with, teaching and empowering others to take control of their own health, wellness and happiness by working with the energies of the body. I love researching and practicing different healing methods and passing my knowledge on to others so they can get to know their true selves and learn to work with their unique energies. When our energies are strong, balanced and flowing we are Radiant! When we heal and empower ourselves we become a healing force for everybody around us. Good energy is contagious!
These methods have helped me personally many times over the years and I believe can help everyone, regardless of their situation. If we want to be happy, healthy, well balanced and really thrive, we have to start at the level of our subtle energies.
I am a certified yoga teacher in Hatha & Traditional Tantra with Satya Loka and have practiced Kundalini Yoga for 16 years, and taught it for the last 7 years.
I am a full instructor with the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain, teaching Tai Chi, Qigong, Sound Healing & Meditation.
I am an Acupressure Therapist SNHC and an Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner,
I have been studying and practising for many years . EFT and Energy Medicine have helped me personally through many physical and emotional problems and I am constantly fascinated with how powerful and effective these methods are in helping people overcome all sorts of problems, and obtain not just physical health, but emotional and mental well-being. Most importantly it gives us the tools to control and improve our own health and healing and that of our family and friends.
I am also an Aromatherapist, Bach flower practitioner and an Acupressure Therapist. Working with the oils on points of the body to help alleviate pain and discomfort both emotionally and physically, the results never cease to amaze me
Join FYP for a weekend of pure, unadulterated movement in the gorgeous setting of Godhill Park Barn on the glorious Isle of Wight! Accommodation to die for, sumptuous food and fabulous scenery – what’s not to like?
Mark will lead you on a merry dance through FYP World. There will be gentle ‘Mellow Yellow’ sessions, strong ‘Move On Up’ fare and of course, the superhero-like ‘FYP Groovers’! On top of that, we will investigate stick mobility work, locomotion skills and the beginnings of handstands! You will walk away brimming with new ideas and feeling supremely energised! If you’re not already, Mark will improve your strength, stamina, endurance, agility & mobility. Anyone from any physical discipline is welcome. Bring an open mind, sense of humour and a mask & cape.
THE FREESTYLE YOGA PROJECT: energetic. Thrilling. Funky. A 21st century approach to dynamic yoga & movement. FYP believe you should work in different ways ALL the time. Many people come to us wanting to ease stiff bodies, find more flexibility in over worked hamstrings/joints – the elusive touching of toes, have a good ‘stretch’ (yawn! We do a whole lot more than that!) – YES – FYP can help with all of that! But what about thinking outside the box? Our take on yoga is probably unlike anything you’ve come across before. An all-round form of physical exercise, which might make you ditch your other ‘stuff’! The diverse ways we move and groove means you’ll challenge yourself in different ways – every single time you come. Be it a mellow flow, familiar yoga positions, through locomotion work to pole work, handstands, hanging from bars, jumping, crawling & rolling! You’ll even find that space for an hour or so to completely focus on yourself and your breathing – if that’s what you’re working on. We’re going to ask you to try things you’ve never considered before. We want you to step up to the edge, peer over it, take a deep breath and maybe set yourself another edge, maybe not today…maybe not tomorrow… but soon, very soon. We look forward to working with you!
