You have the option to provide your own or purchase a few basic balls for the series.)

This course series uses therapy balls for the self trigger point release work. The toolkit needed is the FreeBody Basic Plus Toolkit. The balls are shipped to you for free and the toolkit cost is $45. You will be offered this to purchase at the time of checkout. If you have balls similar to the ones listed, you may be able to use your own therapy tools. Check out the toolkit and see if you've got what you need. I have many repeat students that use the same toolkit for years, and for their self care between courses. This simple toolkit, and the skills you will learn from this course, are game changers. Truly.

Since 1993, she has helped thousands of people move more freely and get out of pain. Cat has continuously studied the body and mind (and heart), developing her methods of addressing dysfunction, injury, and chronic pain. Her work is rooted in Trigger Point Therapy and a strong belief in the essential practice of working with the nervous system to gain access to the muscles and connective tissues.
She began instructing yoga in 2001 and massage therapy in 2006. In 2012, Cat started offering public SMFR classes with the added benefit of precise trigger point location and release. Cat expertly weaves her knowledge of the nervous system and vagal tone (essentially, being able to handle difficult things with more ease) with her anatomical knowledge and precise trigger point skills into every class she teaches.
Cat is also a Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist™, an instructor of the Overcoming Anxiety™ series, and a longtime practitioner of yoga and meditation. As a 500hr EYT with Yoga Alliance, she is a guest instructor in yoga teacher trainings, guiding therapeutic yoga and foam rolling, anatomy, and meditation courses.

Cat is more than totally awesome! I LOVE her classes!
I had been doing PT and chiropractic for over a year and just couldn't get better. In one conversation, Cat isolated the exact cause of my pain. She told me what to do and I had immediate relief!
Cat gave me hope again when I was totally hopeless that I would ever be out of pain.
Cat's self care classes are so so amazing! What a gracious gift to teach us such effective ways to help heal ourselves. I am so glad to learn these techniques from her, and would recommend these to anyone.
