Catherine and I met in London about 7 years ago and even if there where months when we just each had our own priorities, we kept being friends and lately yoga actually got us closer, even if through Zoom!

This chat is a chat between friends, full of interesting stories and lots of laughter, but also lots of useful information, especially for people who are interested in martials arts and yoga.

Catherine told us about her studies, her past jobs; the very cool experience of being part of an all girl death metal band; her studies; how and why she came to the UK (I’m not going to spoil it, but there is a love story in there too and talking about spoiling, I once accidentally told Catherine how Anna Karenina ends while she was only half way through the book).

We then went on to talk about martial arts (Kung Fu, Thai Chi, Kickboxing – I might have mentioned Kung Fu Panda OUPS); the future plans for a charity aimed at elderly people or people who can’t afford paying for Thai Chi and Yoga: Wellbeing Mindfulness & Martial Arts.

Catherine explained more about the world of yoga and how it’s not just the physical exercise that we always associate yoga with, she talked with passion about teaching yoga and always learning and improving.

We made fun of our own accents and mistakes in English, Catherine also revealed that she knows a few words in Romanian, that was super cute! We, of course, talked about wine, literature, movies and all sort of heart warming subjects.

Sit back, relax and enjoy this episode, especially the part where Catherine talks us through a very relaxing breathing technique, you will be amazed to know how a small practice like this can improve your mood so much.
