Hello. I’m Katrina.
I love what I do - that’s a blessing I don’t take it lightly. Through my teachings and music, I get to see people leave their fears and stress in the dust and take a deliberate step into their truth to experience inner peace, confidence, balance, and joy. That soul connection, heart expansion lights me up every day. It’s why I do this work.
My own personal transformation journey began with a power yoga DVD which may seem odd considering I am now certified and teaching a highly spiritual practice. But let me explain. I always loved exercise and the outdoors – it was part of my life growing up. I realized from a very early age that exercise made me feel great and it was a fun way to spend time with others. I was an avid runner and tennis player which eventually took its toll and I began having mild hip pain, just enough pain to push me into trying an alternative form of exercise. In addition to the sore hip my back was occasionally making its complaints from spending so many hours working at my desk job. So, I thought maybe yoga would be a good option – low impact and maybe I could stretch my hip and back into shape. I purchased some DVDs online and began with power yoga. Yes, that was my beginning…power yoga. I loved it.
And there’s more.
I saw a new spa near where I live in Porto Portugal. My friend was looking to practice a very particular type of massage. I went in to ask “Hey, do you do this type of massage?” They ended up telling me about their new Kundalini Yoga class. I tried the class. I loved it. I felt calm, relaxed and more connected to myself than ever!
I had an intense desire to know everything there was to know about it. The teacher was leaving and she wanted me to take over the classes. I said no.
Her hubby took over when he decided to join his wife in Africa, he asked me to teach the classes.
This time it sunk in. They knew I was interested. I just didn’t figure it out, but this time I was in. I agreed to take the teacher training. I did the teacher training in Spain and took over the classes. That was over 12 years ago.
And now, 12 years later I am no longer seeking - because I found the pathway to connect to my essence - a treasure map through the inner labyrinth.
