Keep your head up and heart open is Katrina’s motto! Katrina has her E-RYT 500 in alignment based Hatha/Vinyasa from Uplifted™ Yoga and studied with Guru Singh for her 200hr Kundalini certification at Kundalini University. She teaches practitioners through her local and global online studio and leads hundreds of students a year into stepping into their personal teaching power as a lead trainer for Uplifted™ Yoga. Diving deep into the chakras and astrology to help bring introspection, understanding and healing on a deeper level has guided her in truly stepping into her power and voice and is a passion of hers. You’ll often find these themes as part of her offerings to support others in doing the same. She especially loves to work with the cycles of the moon and our bodies, and encourages students to honor themselves through the cycles and seasons of life through her teachings. Katrina teaches meditation, mudra, journaling, hatha, vinyasa, yin, restorative, yoga nidra, kids, teens, trapeze and kundalini classes. Katrina deeply understands and respects that it isn't always easy to keep your head up and heart open, so she ensures all of her classes are trauma mindful and empowering. She will constantly remind you this is your practice, not hers, and your body, your choice. And she will always be there with a patient reminder to come back to the breath as an anchor both on and off the mat.
Katrina makes use of her biology degree, knowledge and love of physical and energetic anatomy, and multiple yoga teacher trainings to help heal herself holistically and guides others to do the same. She discovered yoga after being diagnosed with celiac disease, needing a gentle routine that took care of her healing body and overwhelmed mind. Leaning harder on a daily personal practice helped her find the awareness and strength to get out of an abusive marriage. Incorporating Kundalini yoga into her practice has further helped her heal trauma and manage anxiety and PTSD.
Always striving to turn her trauma into her dharma, she makes all of her offerings safe and compassionate. Katrina genuinely cares about each individual and intuitively adjusts classes to her students' wellbeing. Kids and adults alike are guaranteed to leave her classes feeling seen, loved, empowered and like they did something really healing for their bodies, minds, hearts and spirits!
