Catherine Mulligan

Catherine was introduced to yoga at age 14 as a ballet dancer at Savannah Arts Academy. She quickly fell in love with the movement and philosophy of yoga. At age 16, she earned her first teaching certification and began teaching yoga classes in the dance room after school.

The practice of yoga has undoubtedly been the greatest gift in Catherine’s life. The continued impact yoga makes in her way of being is the “why” behind her teachings. The value of the practice is so high that it would be wrong not to share it.

Catherine Mulligan instructs the following:
  • Monthly Satsang
  • Join us for a monthly gathering to discuss and reflect on the ethical principles of yoga. 
    We will use The Yamas and Niyamas by Deborah Adele as our guide. Each month, one of our SPY teachers will lead the discussion and help us reflect on, discuss and assimilate their meaning into our 21st century lives. These gatherings are intended to be a dialog and an inquiry into how we can align ourselves with these principles and bring them into our thoughts and actions.

    The 5 Yamas include:

    • Ahimsa - non-violence (February 21)
    • Satya - truthfulness (March 21)
    • Asteya - non-stealing (April 18)
    • Brahmacharya - moderation in all things (May 16)
    • Aparigraha - non-covetousness (June 20)

    The 5 Niyamas include:

    • Saucha - purity i.e. internal and external cleanliness (July 18)
    • Santosha - contentment (August 15)
    • Tapas - austerity; discipline (September 19)
    • Swadhyaya - study of the sacred texts (October 17)
    • Ishwara Pranidhana - constantly living with an awareness of the divine Presence (November 14)
