Cathy Mines Peace Ambassador, ALLY, RIHR, CYT, YES

Yoga, Meditation, Individual and Family Mentoring.

Cathy Mines Founder Reach Yoga and The Art of Living Sacred DailyCathy is the Owner and Director of Wellness at Reach Yoga. Organizing and facilitating Yoga & Meditation programs across the GTA as well as Retreats both in and out of the city, Cathy creates a safe environment for the experience of yoga where ever she goes. Jokingly calling herself “Wellness On Wheels” as from her car unfolds a complete mobile yoga studio! with mats, yoga straps, music and candles. All you need to bring is yourself.

It is Cathy’s goal to bring wellness programs to as many individuals and companies and schools as she can, helping to inspire the end of unnecessary stress in our lives.

Reach Yoga has been a growing seed for Cathy for many years now, considering herself a perpetual student of yoga, she is constantly collecting skills and knowledge. Building her own unique approach to wellness, allowing her students, teachers and mentors to inspire and shape the heart of her teaching style. Where there is a need for healing yoga has its place. From the physical to the emotional to the spiritual yoga supports a well rounded look at healthy living.

Cathy is a certified yoga instructor since 2003, a graduate of the Transformational Arts College Spiritual Psychotherapy Program and a Delegate at the Resonance Academy. A Certified HeartMath Clinical Practitioner and Receiving a Certified Peace Ambassador Certification from her studies with James O’Dea and the Shift Network has been one of Cathy’s most treasured achievements in this work. Most of all Cathy is living the dream of loving the work she does.

Reach Yoga Goes Carbon Neutral!

Welcome Renee and Mike
Our Carbon Neutral Ambassadors!

Renee and MikeWith the help of two of the best humans I know Reach Yoga is going carbon neutral. Please join me in welcoming our Carbon Neutral Ambassadors Mike Bielesch and Renee LeBlanc. Mike and Renee have been inspiring me personally with their Earth Wisdom for some time now and I made the leap and asked if they would consider creating a carbon neutral department at Reach Yoga and they are over the moon to step into these rolls for us. We benefit from their love and deep commitment to living in ways that keep all of us connected to the natural world as well as their academic educations. Renee attended Acadia University for Environmental Science and Geology, and Mike attended Dalhousie Agriculture Campus for Plant Sciences. Yes we have a stellar team with these two environmental specialists. Outside of their education they have a love for organic farming, sustainable living and being all round kind human beings. Recently spending 3 months farming on Pono Grown Farm Centre in Makawao on the Island of Maui as well as a summer farming experience on Merkabah Farm in Bobcaygeon Ontario. Hailing from the beautiful province of Nova Scotia they are equally connected to the water, participating in water restoration projects in Ontario and Nova Scotia. These fabulous young people are an absolute blessing to have on Team Reach as our our Carbon Neutral Ambassadors. We love you Renee and Mike!
