About this series...

Are you ready to experience more ease, more peace, and more emotional freedom?

In FreeBody Therapeutics: Self Care for Stress and Anxiety Reduction, Cat Matlock will guide you through some simple brain science to help you understand how emotional triggers work.  You will learn what happens when your nervous system gets hijacked by old stories, old fears and worries, and WHY this happens.  Once you can identify that you ARE being hijacked, you are empowered to use the simple techniques you will learn in this series to reclaim and reset your nervous system back to a state of calm ease.  Simple scientifically proven breathing practices and easy yoga postures will land in your toolbox for you to access so you can keep stepping down your stress response and become better able to respond instead of react to the ups and downs of your life.  

No yoga experience is necessary.

Series limited to 16 participants

My classroom is small on purpose.  I want to be able to assist each and every person that needs guidance during the class.  With a small number of students I can give personal attention to each participant, help you feel more comfortable, and support you during the series.  


About Cat Matlock

  Cat Matlock is the founder, lead therapist, and instructor at FreeBody Trigger Point Massage Clinic and Training Center in Asheville, NC.  Since 1993, she 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.  

  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 an instructor for Yoga International and created a  YouTube channel  with free Self MyoFascial Release (SFMR)videos.  

  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.
