Catherine Donnelly

A native Southern Californian, Catherine still spends the majority of her time playing in the sunshine. After years of soccer and competitive running, she became an NSCA certified personal trainer during her undergrad studies at UCLA. Catherine graduated with a B.A. in psychology in 2012 and entered into the corporate world for a brief period of time during which she discovered yoga – or perhaps yoga discovered her. Within months, she decided to obtain her 200-hour certification in Santa Monica under the expertise of Rudy Mettia and has been happily teaching all over Los Angeles. From NBC’s Biggest Loser Resort in Malibu, to downtown LA, yoga has taught her more than she could have imagined. Catherine’s teaching style pulls from her athletic background and tends to be on the rigorous side of the spectrum (although recovery is a necessary element of the practice!). Her other loves include acting, the arts, photography and traveling to obscure places.
