I’ve known Qat since I first moved to Manitou in 2011. I met her in a group lesson and she became my private Yoga instructor. I was relatively new to Yoga at that time, but because I have hypermobile type Ehlers-Danlos, I’m very flexible. However, that flexibility comes with stability issues, and often times, lots of pain from spontaneous dislocations, or muscle spasms.
In 2011, I didn’t have a diagnosis, but Qat knew I needed to build more strength with that flexibility, or my practice would not improve So before a physician gave me a medical diagnosis, Qat helped me understand that my body’s “gift” required more of my muscles.
Here in 2017, I received that official diagnosis, and Qat has been the most integral part of living with Ehlers-Danlos. I canceled my physical therapy sessions, quit my Yoga studio membership, and decided to continue private lessons with her.
Qat is so knowledgeable! She weaves in and out of formal training, the science of anatomy, and experience seamlessly. Even while I’m distracted and sharing a personal frustration, Qat notices when I have hyper-extended, or when an exercise isn’t safe for me yet, because I may dislocate something.
Lastly, she’s super flexible with her time, and I leave the session with homework that I have already practiced and thoroughly understand. Plus, she’s always available to answer questions. As I continue on my Yoga journey and get a little more advanced, I’m going to rely on Qat to get me there safely
