About Catherine Tardif

Catherine Tardif has been teaching Yoga for fourteen years. Catherine’s practice began in 1999 when the pressures of working in a corporate job led her to Yoga for stress reduction. A year later Catherine became chronically ill with Fibromyalgia, Vertiginous Migraines and Chronic Fatigue. After many Doctor’s and little relief Catherine found solace in her practice. Yoga helped her heal enough to start to get her life back. Understanding the remarkable transformation was mostly due to Yoga, she realized her dream of sharing the gift with others.

Catherine’s intention is to teach classes the way she would want them. Always striving to provide a personalized experience. She believes everyone should emerge from class feeling nurtured, rejuvenated and challenged.

Catherine enrolled in a Yoga Teacher training in July of 2003 with The Yoga Institute of Houston. Her teachers Lex Gillan, the Swami and Stan Haffner, the Yogi, provided the perfect foundation for her to achieve her goal. Lex studied with Chogyan Trungpa Rinpoche, Ram Dass and Stephen Levine. Stan one of the first students invited to India by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois to learn the Ashtanga Vinyasa Method. Later on Stan became registered in Vini Yoga as taught by the late Desikachar, the son of Krishnamacharya.

In 2006 Janice Clarified certified Catherine in Prenatal Yoga. Janice is world-renowned and sits on the board of Prenatal Yoga Advisory Committee for Yoga Alliance. Many other teachers have influenced Catherine’s teaching including Shiva Rea, founder of Prana Flow Method and Micheline Berry, founder of Liquid Asana. Catherine also worked at Namaste Yoga Studio in Tampa. Adrienne Reed, the owner, created the series Power Yoga Mind and Body on PBS. Adrienne’s teaching has inspired Catherine’s teaching as well.

Catherine is also a Reiki II Practitioner, certified through The Amrit Yoga Institute. Additionally, she is certified level II Thai Yoga Massage from The Florida School of Massage.
