I am so excited to announce new classes at SUKHA this summer.
There will be three new classes with three amazing women who practice at SUKHA.
Gentle Yoga with Cathy Higgins!!!
Cathy will be teaching every Sunday at 10:30.
Here is a bit about our friend Cathy:
After 32 years as an elementary teacher, I decided it was time to retire 2 years ago. I had spent 20 years with the Barnegat Twp. school system and another 12 in Jackson Twp. while being married and raising our two boys. Towards the end of my career, I was also battling chronic Lyme disease and coinfections. There were days I had to drag myself out of bed and into school, counting the hours until I could go home and nap. It wasn't fair to my students or me, so I decided it was time to leave.
I had "dabbled" in yoga during different stages of my life: high school, prenatal classes before the birth of our first son, and some Saturday classes at a local studio about 10 years ago. I say, "dabbled" because I never stuck with it. Life got in the way: college, motherhood, work, closed studios, and I let it. That first September that I didn't return to teaching, I was drawn to yoga again. I enrolled in yoga classes being offered by the Ocean County Vocational School adult education program and began taking classes there twice a week. It was hard. Although I was feeling a lot better due to my Lyme treatment, I was pretty out-of-shape and overweight. I could barely hold a plank and downward facing dog was hard, too. I took a lot of child's poses at first, but I pushed myself and I didn't quit. As my body became stronger, I found myself loving how I felt, not just physically, but spiritually. The asana, the teachings, the philosophy, the chanting, I loved it all and I wanted more. I signed up for the Spring session at OCVTS, and when Summer came, I found Sukha...happiness. After taking classes there that summer, I learned about their teacher training program scheduled to begin in September, and I knew I needed to be a part of it. Boy, am I glad that I did! It has changed me for the better, not because I can hold a plank or do chaturanga, it has changed me on the inside, and I strive to be a better person today than I was yesterday. It's hard, the inside work, but SO worth it.
I look forward to helping others learn about yoga, and feeling the difference it can make for them, too.
