Cat McCarthy

Cat McCarthy meets people where they are and never leaves them where they were.  She contains a relational field in which all can safely traverse the heart-mind-body terrain, integrating the practice of Yoga, Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and Trauma-informed Somatic Coaching.

An international trainer for 30 years, Cat holds certifications in Anusara Yoga, Kripalu Yoga, NYCNVC Facilitation, and Compassionate Inquiry.   She has studied extensively in Neelakantha meditation, Rajanaka Philosophy, BMC’s Embodied Anatomy and is a registered E-RYT500/YACEP/RYS educator with The Yoga Alliance.  This Emmy-nominated filmmaker also directs/produces non-fiction projects and has co-created “The Upside of Over” podcast.

Cat is skilled at conflict transformation and mediation, offering empathic ears, vulnerable humor, and dynamic clarity.  Within a co-regulated space of curiosity, she extends her compassionate and playful presence to her clients and to her online spinal cord injury group.  Witnessing the transformational impact of Compassionate Inquiry, Cat’s motto is: Let’s explore this together.
