"Movement is a resource for relaxation and aliveness, supporting our health and resilience. Movement reconnects us to the fundamentals of our life force: breath, heart beat, our physical relationship with gravity and Earth, somatic awareness, supple instinctive movements, and shared creative expression in community.
When we are stressed out or overwhelmed we often tense up or close down, numb out, and become more stationary.
Movement is a simple, reliable method to reorganize our central nervous systems, fostering a more connected, flexible, attuned, and responsive instrument for interacting with the world.
Movement is transformative....and, it is also wildly fun, silly, endlessly surprising, and restorative."
Katrina is a lover of improvisation and playful experimentation in movement. She finds that dance is one of the richest pathways for liveliness and relaxation, offering a way to unravel tension and create supple, responsive ground for living.
As a movement teacher, Katrina offers gentle, playful, inventive facilitation, helping people relax into their bodies, deepen their improvisational creativity, and co-create a vibrant experience of resonant community.
Katrina trained as a Soul Motion Teacher in the Pilot Program, from 2007-2009. She worked for a number of years for the Soul Motion School, assisting Teacher Trainings, co-developing the curriculum for the Leadership Training, serving as a Mentor, and then serving as the Mentor Coordinator. She has regularly assisted Arjuna Marti, Soul Motion's founder, at workshops at Esalen and Kripalu, to deepen her practice.
As a movement facilitator, Katrina weaves 12 years of training in Soul Motion with her expertise as a Certified Sensorimotor Psychotherapist, Certified Art Therapist, and Registered Yoga Teacher, her training at the Tamalpa Institute in Movement based Expressive Arts, with her background in improvisational theater, and her love of Earth.
