Pure Cat Initiative

Pure Cat Initiative

Tigerlily Foundation’s Pure Cat Initiative was launched in honor of Catherine Odderstol, a sassy yogi, who danced through life, spread light and joy with everyone she met, and who left us the gift of her eternal gypsy soul.  Cat was dedicated to helping others have a mind, body, spirit approach to health and wellness.  Cat has inspired us to honor her SPIRIT legacy, by offering patients, caregivers and loved ones access to programs that inspire them to light up life, focus on faith not fear, and as she loved to say, “Let Love be Your Frequency”.

We are excited to offer you this additional support. Sending love to all.

MONDAY CLASSES

4:00pm EST: Yoga with Valencia

Screen Shot 2021-11-12 at 9.32.00 AM

I offer yoga and meditation classes, beach yogaYogaWalks, and cancer retreats. I have been featured doing yoga on Good Morning America and featured in People Magazine as a National Teacher of the Year.

When I’m not helping people discover the magic of yoga, you can find me actively involved in my local community. I’m passionate about helping cancer patients get to and from their appointments and helping them navigate through their journey.  I am a patient advocate and work with several National organizations in areas of legislation, research and therapeutics. I was awarded the 2019 Grassroots Advocacy Award by the National Breast Cancer Coalition.

My secret and occasional indulgences are traveling, exploring new places and reading a good novel.

I’m so looking forward to connecting with you and sharing the gifts of yoga and mindfulness!

Some of the Major Benefits of Yoga:

·      Increased physical stamina so you feel more flexible, less sore, have better posture and are stronger in your body

·      Meditation and breath work exercises that allow you to stay calm and peaceful, even in agitated situations

·      Regular activity that includes physical exercise, mental engagement, and spiritual relaxation

Things to consider for our Yoga class together: Eat a light, healthy lunch the day of class, drink plenty of water throughout the day, if you have blocks or books have them handy, have a strap or scarf close by also. We will also do some chair poses so please have a chair and, of course, your mat.
Join Valencia at 4:00 pm EST!

FRIDAY CLASSES

 

8:00pm EST First Friday of each month: Community Sound Bath with Michaela

 

Website-SoundBath-PureCat

We come together in community to be supported by the soothing vibrations of breath, silence, and sound. The session begins with setting an intention for your practice, followed by gentle stretches and breathing techniques to guide you into deep relaxation and surrender. The remainder of the journey is a sound bath guided by crystal singing bowls, tuning forks, drum, guitar, and vocal toning channelling the frequencies of love.

Join Michaela on the first Thursday of every month for an opportunity to nourish your body, mind, and soul. Give yourself the gift of loving care, attention, and a space to relax and release at the end your day. Sweeten your sleep by entering this sanctuary of self love and connection.

No prior experience with meditation or sound healing is necessary. Wear what makes you feel most comfortable, have a cushion and blanket near by. Bring a curious mind and an open heart.
