Instructors Bio |
In 2010 Katherina began yoga as a way to change up her exercise regiment but realized she wasn't coming back for the work out but for the work in. The safe space of the yoga mat allowed her to move effortlessly, without judgement to clear her mind and express herself non-verbally. The more she dived into yoga; it’s readings of history, therapeutic properties, and energy work the more her attitude towards others and herself began to transform.

In the summer of 2014 she received her RYT 200 certification from Charm City Yoga under the teachings of Kim Manfredi and Camille Moses-Allen. By 2016 her yoga career had flourished and she said goodbye to her full-time job. Through offering classes, private lessons, corporate yoga, workshops, and more she believes she has learned to understand that yoga can be made accessible to all. With her self gained the knowledge she knew she was ready to take the next step and in 2018 she completed another 300 hours of training from Yogaworks under the mentorship of Jessica Crowley-Ambrose. Her vast experience allows her to offer a practice that is not only physically challenging , but corrective to our bodies from the labor they endure. She speaks of challenging the mind to let go of its’ ego, to find our most honest selves, and through that personal truth, finding our happiness. She truly believes yoga is a gift to ourselves and that everyone and everybody will find something to treasure when they open their heart to the practice of yoga.
