Catharine Vaucher

Catharine Vaucher, RYT, began practicing yoga and meditation in 2000. She completed Simply Yoga’s 200-hour Teacher Training program in 2012, and is currently working towards the Intro I/II Iyengar teaching assessment. Catharine studies yoga with Iyengar teachers Matt Dreyfus, Carrie Owerko, Kevin Gardiner and Dean & Rebecca Lerner. She is also in a 2-year program studying the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with Gitte Bechsgaard, Ph.D.

Before studying yoga, Catharine was a professor of dance and NYU teaching fellow—teaching dance technique, contact improvisation, movement analysis, effort/shape, composition, history and theory. She has an M.F.A. in dance and was artistic director and performer with Ministry of Motion and later Animage, an improvisational dance group best known for their performances inspired by the subtle realm of dreams, shadow and the unconscious.

My passion in teaching yoga is to help students create more consciousness in their body while increasing strength, confidence, and range of motion. With a focus on alignment and dynamic action, I guide students to explore the opportunities within each pose to re-discover balance, freedom and joy.
