A Yogi's

Breast Cancer


A born educator and compassionate healer, Cathleen Kahn teaches people to see physical fitness as a path to positive change in their lives. Working as a yogi, wellness expert, and the founder and co-owner of CatFit Yoga, she helps her clients find sustainable paths to health, happiness, and self-love.

She's always loved yoga, but it wasn't until Cathleen survived a battle with breast cancer that it became central to her life. She says, "After cancer, I lived yoga. When I lost my hair, yoga didn't care how I looked. When I felt betrayed by my body, the yoga mat welcomed me. Yoga was therapeutic and a place of acceptance and healing for me during and after my diagnosis."

When she's not teaching, writing, or speaking, Cathleen loves to travel, volunteer, and savor a great glass of red wine. She enjoys learning as much as teaching and strives to make a lasting and positive difference in the lives of everyone she meets.
