Yoga at Piney Lake


A note from the instructor…

Hi there! My name is Catie Payne and I am the Membership Coordinator for the Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Wellness. I am an alumna of UNCG, graduating with a degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Psychology. I found yoga about two years ago. From the beginning, the practice allowed me to experience and interact with life in a new way. As time went on, I began contemplating the idea of attending teacher training. I mean, why not share this beautiful practice with everyone I can? I was given the opportunity to attend a Level 1 training this past February and really found value in the perspective shift from student to instructor.

I will be leading seven one-hour long yoga sessions at Piney Lake this summer to complete the rest of my YogaFit Level 1 Instructor Certification. No yoga experience is required for the class and all levels are welcome. All I ask is you come with an open mind for the hour we will share together. From this class, you can expect to leave with a smile on your face from the perfect combination of yoga and sunshine. I will be providing all equipment (yoga mats, blocks, and straps).

Anyone who is a current Kaplan Center Member or UNCG student can access Piney Lake for FREE. Not a member? UNCG Alumni and current UNCG Faculty/Staff can purchase a $10.00 weekend pass good for one weekend out at Piney Lake.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns! My email address is clpayne2@uncg.edu.
I look forward to seeing you on your mat! Namaste.
