Catalyst Training

A unique fusion of strength training, HIIT, yoga, and free movement

I developed this program based on what I do if I have two hours to just be with my body...I dance to music, work my cardio ability and my strength, stretch and lengthen my muscles, connect to my emotions, shake my body, be still and quiet, and I created Catalyst Training.

Catalyst uses a unique fusion of strength training, HIIT, yoga, and free movement exercises to tap into your body’s natural patterns. The result is that you’ll get your heart pumping and your muscles burning, while you build body awareness and learn to move freely. It's a full body experience! It has a slow and steady build up to a peak and then a rolling hill quality back down to rest.

“My experience of Catalyst Training with Neva was a full mind, body, spirit nourishing and full contact experience. Neva’s shared wild vibrant energy is truly contagious.”
