With Carmela Cattuti, LPN, Kripalu Certified Instructor
expert prenatal yoga teacher and former labor and delivery nurse.
Teaching prenatal yoga has been my passion for twenty years. I am excited to share my experience and knowledge base with teachers all over the planet. Pregnancy is not a pathology, it is a process. It is a journey that requires fluidity and focus. This program assists yoga instructors, doulas, labor and delivery nurses, and prenatal massage therapists to empower pregnant women through this journey. If you are ready to expand your practice and become known for your expertise in prenatal yoga, or you just want to know how to serve pregnant women as an expert, then this program is for you!
Carmela Cattuti's yoga teaching career began at age forty two. Opportunities for teaching came to her and a new career path presented itself. Her nursing background gave her a deep understanding of health and assisted in her study of Iyengar alignment and safety. After fourteen years of study she found that all her abilities merged and she could offer students a safe and vitality producing experience. She integrated her talent as an artist into her approach to postures and spiritual concepts. This approach added another layer to her presentation and execution of poses. Carmela is able to direct students through restrictions in body, mind, and spirit. She assists students to feel their way through the postures to embrace what is on the other side of the process.
Carmela's artist sensibility permeates her approach to the body as a work of art in progress. Her focus in art-making and yoga is to create balance and vitality in form. The disciplines of painting and yoga came into her life simultaneously. “If one color or shape doesn't work,” says Carmela, “or if you don't have the skill to execute your vision, then change the shape to accommodate your organic process. In this way, you can be your own authority during your yoga practice.”
CARMELA CATTUTI: ART
Carmela Cattuti is a Boston and Florida based artist who has explored the relationship between energy and the artistic process of shape, form, and color. She has studied extensively at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and at the Museums School in Boston. She is an abstract realist, maintaining her sense of form and application of color to express the unseen, but uses the classical guidelines of third dimensional perspective and color.
