Both a Mindfulness and Yoga Teacher Trainer, Cathy-Mae is also an Ayurvedic Practitioner keen to acknowledge the roots and traditions from which these great teachings derive. Coming from South Africa, Cath is passionate about social justice and how we navigate the divided worlds of yoga and mindfulness in which ‘traditional’ communities of practice and marginalised groups are often ignored and overlooked. As a simple yet very powerful practice of nourishing our hearts and minds, mindfulness serves as a foundation for living life more fully. Through the study of mindfulness, Cath will take students on a journey that is anchored in cultivating kindness.

Angela Pham

Angela Pham
Busines Coach & Mentor

Since becoming a qualified yoga teacher in 2017, Angela realised that there was a lack of support for new yoga teachers post YTT.  She found that the most challenging part of turning a passion like yoga into a career is knowing how to start and being aware of what to expect on the journey.  As a mentor and business coach for Whole Self, she serves the soon to be yoga teachers and prepares them for life post YTT.  She works with the students on ways to hustle, the business side of yoga, leveraging tech tools to build their brand and ways to maintain self care as a new yoga teacher.
