When she began practicing yoga in 1996, it was only natural that she would pursue it fully and learn as much as possible.
Teaching since 2004, Catherine has been influenced by a variety of teachers including T.K.V Desikachar, Dr. Judith Hanson Lasater, Shiva Rea and Max Strom, although her greatest inspiration comes from her students. Catherine passionately teaches Yoga to a wide variety of students of all ages and recently developed "Lumious Yoga--Integrating Yoga to Improve Overall Wellness for People Who Live with Movement Disorders" and she recently released a new DVD, Catherine Genzler Yoga - Yoga for People Living with Parkinson's Disease. You can view segments of the DVD by visting the Video page and you may purchase a copy of Catherine's new video on the Purchase a Video Page.
Honoring the earliest interpretations of the science of Yoga, Catherine encourages her students to be mindful that the physical practice of yoga (asana) is meant to bring the body to place where the mind will finally become quiet, allowing the essential nature of the person to be revealed.
Catherine’s professional affiliations include: National Yoga Alliance, Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) at 400 hour level, Arizona Yoga Association, and this year her own Parkinson’s disease teacher training program was launched with support from the Muhammad Ali Parkinson’s Center. With her move to NY, Catherine has brought her yoga program to New York Methodist Hospital’s Parkinson’s Center.
Catherine is grateful to her husband and business partner, Jeff, for his enthusiastic support of her ever-evolving yogic life adventures. Together, they have recently relocated from Arizona to Brooklyn, NY where they embrace life with their dog, Kobi, and spend time with their daughter, son-in-law and precious new granddaughter who also live, love, work, and play in Brooklyn.
