  • Catherine is a wonderful teacher. "After using Gentle Fitness several years, I still look forward to joining you for that quiet and curiously relaxing time. It not only feels good, but helps me stand tall, sit straight, and breathe better (which is especially important as I have asthma). I always look forward to your easy-flowing, quiet class, and I just don't get tired of it."
