How do I book a CAT session?

Please send me an email to me, stating your complaint, your question and how to reach you. Please use this form.

How long will it take until I feel the effect of Critical Alignment Therapy (CAT)?

In a world of quick and easy treatments to cure ailments, this question is a very legit one. With CAT we try to discover and dismantle stiffness and tensions that have been build up for years. These tensions are often the root of our back (related) pain and stress. Although feelings of relief and lessening of tension are experienced within the first few weeks of the practice, resolving structural stress will most likely take a longer time. How long exactly is completely dependent on the practice frequency and the nature of the complaint.

Do you provide CAT at a different location?

I currently only teach at Yoga of Los Altos, and will also teach the private sessions there. If you wish to use a different location, please contact me so we can discuss this.

Is this workshop for beginning or for experienced runners

This class is for runners and yogis of all levels, from total beginners to experienced yoga practicioners and athletes. A part of the class will be outside, where we will apply the CA-technique of the class to our running posture. We will run a couple of small loops at a time, so it really doesn’t matter how far or how fast you can run.

Are we running outside or is the whole class in the yoga studio?

We are going to run outside, as we want to apply what we learned in the yoga session to our running technique. So please bring your running shoes!

How far or fast are we going to run?

We are only going to run a couple of loops at the time, around the parking lot at the back side of the studio. How many loops you want to do is totally dependent on your pace and endurance. If you want you can take it easy and even walk in between the runs, because we are running in loops, we will always stay together!

I am a runner, but currently injured. Can I still attend the class?

I am sorry to hear you are injured! It totally depends on your injury if you can attend the class. A big part of the class is about resolving tension-related pain, which can lead to injuries (also the typical runners injuries). Please send an e-mail to me regarding your injury, so I can discuss with you if attending the class is currently a good idea.
