Catherine Larget-Caplan

I fix bodies. I have fixed bodies for over 30 years. When I have willing participants there have not been issues that I haven't had success in; literally clients have arrived with crutches and left walking. My exercises activate the meridians (energy lines connected to the organs) to heal and reestablish balance in the body.

I have 45 years of experience practicing yoga and 33 years as a certified Shiatsu practitioner. Though I do both I have integrated the two into a new practice that I call: Cathar Yoga & Healing. Catharsis being for rebirth. I work with absolute beginners or those who just want more out of their lives. No experience is necessary.

Like many healers I came to the healing arts to improve my life and did so using techniques I learned and created. My alternative and holistic education began at age 15 studying far eastern philosophies in France. I studied with first generation Iyengar student Dassa Openheimer where I quickly started substitute teaching for her classes, and I was a co-teacher at Harvard University during Iyengar’s Yoga Convention.

In 1988, I began incorporating simple tools into my general yoga exercises. Over the years I have refined my exercises and made them available to the public. I currently teaches and works in Boston, Massachusetts where I see clients from throughout the world.


To promote health and wealth, and end individual suffering and frustration by teaching physical, emotional and spiritual disciplines, correcting traumas and injuries brigning enlightenment and new hopes. To promote and enhance a sustainable lifestyle while making it available to all who desire it. To bring awareness about the ability and the confirmed results of these alternative approaches. To bring consciousness to these healing measures. To create the great poise and great joy within so that we, as great strong people, can be great citizens of this planet Earth.
