You started practicing yoga in 1994 and began teaching it in 2004. You are often referred to as a teacher's instructor who has dedicated her entire life to improving yoga practice. Your journey with yoga. A series of events that will lead you to the same.

Cathy Madeo

We were required to attend a private yoga class twice per week during college. This was for one year. The strange positions of yoga and the spiritual teachings felt like home to me. After I graduated from yoga, I moved to Los Angeles. It was the epicenter of yoga in the 1990s. My teachers and dedicated students in LA influenced me. In 2004, I received my certification and started teaching in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and then in LA. To return to school, I moved to the east coast in search of a real job and quit teaching yoga. I was miserable. After deep reflection on my happiness, I discovered that I felt most fulfilled when I was able to serve others. I quit my corporate job in order to return to teaching.

Social media was a huge help when I returned to teaching yoga. Vinyasa style reigned supreme in many yoga studios. I started to question everything I believed I knew about yoga. This was when I began to question everything I believed I knew about yoga. I started teaching in the local yoga studios, and later opened my own studio. My teaching career and my yoga practice have grown exponentially online. I've never felt happier. My yoga journey has been shaped by curiosity and the desire to learn.

If you suffer from chronic back pain caused by spinal stenosis (a condition that affects the spine), you may be able to heal your body. How can you get rid of the pain and suffering?

Cathy Madeo

Spinal stenosis, a condition of the spine that is genetic, is characterized by a narrowing of spinal canals. This can lead to herniated discs and degenerative conditions. After living with chronic back pain for over a decade, I had to have emergency spine surgery in 2018. One of my disks burst and another caused permanent nerve damage. Before surgery, I committed that I would continue practicing yoga no matter what.

I was unable to walk after my spine surgery. I did however meditate, pranayama, balanced the chakras, and moved around every day, even though it was only my joints. I still felt a lot of pain after the surgery. After seeing therapist after therapist after therapist, it became clear that I needed to test my knowledge. Through this intimate experience I was able to connect with my body in a way that was more gentle and less forceful. I started to heal. I began to strengthen the areas of atrophy such as my leg muscles and glutes.

To support my back, I used my own Activate Your Core method. Now I am more flexible and stronger than ever in my life, and I am a more compassionate yoga teacher.
