Cat Duval

Thanks for showing up

“Happiness is an art accessible to all but only realised by some. My mission is to help people drop their blocks and rock what they’ve got. I speak as a catalyst for change in business culture and share peaceful practices that bond people and planet. I live in Brighton where I paddleboard for perspective, cycle for speed, meditate to slow down and dance for freedom.”

Cat is a wellbeing consultant, senior yoga teacher trainer and founder of Nine Lives Yoga, which is all about connecting people and offering mindfully happy healing, with lasting impact on mental health, communication and performance.

Cat pioneered the Yoga Rave which she now tours internationally which has given rise to a yoga hen party company where she has a team of teachers running wellbeing parties. She gives talks and facilitates workshops and courses in her 4 Pillars of Happiness Method™ and Social Yoga techniques for Fortune 500 clients, media and broadcasting companies, NHS staff, young homeless people with the Clocktower Sanctuary and for clients at mental health hospital Elysium. She is passionate about social inclusion and is launching a Social Yoga teacher training soon.

My Story

I now speak, facilitate and hold space for events all over the UK, Europe and Scandinavia throughout the year working with people from all walks fo life from charities to blue chip companies, from conferences to festivals and courses to one off workshops. I love seeing the spark ignite in peoples’ eyes who felt disillusioned by life events and witness them step into a new way of being in the world that frees their potential.

I was a Hackney London girl with both Mum and Dad working in film.  When I was 11 the family moved to Hurstpierpoint in the heart of Sussex where I stuck out like a sore thumb. I went from being the leader of the pack to a severely bullied teen with my self worth and self esteem stashed somewhere at the bottom of my boots. These years were a double life of in-school mute and outside school a gregarious thespy type. My coping strategies for my low self worth were bravado and workaholism and that led to conventional success working around the world in the music and events industry, an area I felt passionate about. But behind the scenes the lifestyle was unhealthy and I suffered from social anxiety and waves of depression due in no small part to the stress of a high pressure work environment and my nocturnal lifestyle. It wasn’t until I began my yoga journey in 2002 that I began the long road to self care and self love and now I find the more I accept myself as I am, the more the world does too.

I am fascinated by the merge of ancient healing practices with modern science. Once we consciously align our thoughts, words and deeds with our values and life priorities  – the possibilities become limitless.  As we take responsibility and become more consciously aware, we can choose our focus and curate our lives with intention to great effect.

I speak on all things wellbeing from yoga and meditation to the science of happiness and igniting our potential. My dark times have given me insight and I use humour to make the heavy personal development stuff palatable.  My talks are always interactive and relational and I’d love to hear from you.
