I discovered the Cathe Center by accident when I saw a yoga class offered through the Burlington School District 5 years ago. I signed up for the yoga class with Donna Mosca. I love the yoga classes and only wished I had discovered them sooner. I always feel so good after a yoga class. I always thought yoga was good exercise and stretching but have since learned it is so much more. I have taken the yoga sutra class offered through Donna and learned so much.

The Cathe Center enriches the lives of all who attend the various programs there. It has certainly enriched my life. …I am so grateful to have discovered the Cathe Center. My life is so much better because of all the wonderful opportunities to grow and learn offered there.
