I am a rehabilitation counselor by profession who has practiced yoga for at least 17 years. After teaching for the last two years, I have recently completed my 200 hour certification with Yoga Alliance. I love to teach yoga to the beginner that may be too intimidated to try yoga. I also teach to the experienced yogi that is ready to advance his or her practice. My classes focus on the power of the pranayama coupled with correct alignment for a safe and energizing yoga practice.

“I know how to teach people how to feel good in their own bodies.”



“I’ve been way less active since covid. I started doing yoga with cathleen and feel the best I have all shutdown. I’m broken and I feel the most fixed in my broken body I have ever felt.”


“This genuine & amazing soul,  Cathleen Coombs Yoga,  sent me her Gentle Yoga video to try. Last night I finally was able to devote the time to be present. Oh my gosh! The most amazing yoga session I probably have ever had. Such a shift in consciousness and so incredibly healing.”


I’ve been taking Cathleen’s beginner class for several months. She’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing her love of Yoga and meditation. She makes everyone feel welcome and always has alternative movements and suggestions for those of us just starting out.

“Cathleen’s class kicks my butt every time in a good way. I feel relaxed and stretched out, which beats tense and tight.”
