I had my first Body Balance Session with Katie and the experience was truly amazing. She is so professional and knowledgeable on the female body. She gave me very simple exercises that will strengthen my core and stabilize my posture, which has weakened since carrying three babies. Well worth the time and money to take care of myself.
I've always been insatiably curious about the nature of the cosmos and what started as a childhood love of the natural, observable world evolved into a passion for all things science. My scientific seeking culminated in a master’s program in Geology, where my faith in science was shattered by a series of profound synchronicities. Suddenly awakened to a paradigm beyond what science could yet explain, I left academia in 2007 to follow the mystery. Again guided by synchronicity, I found myself working in a series of seemingly unrelated fields –from wilderness therapy and addiction intervention to graphic/web design and brand development and later to soul craft and the ceremonial arts. Despite their apparent disjointedness, each of these passions and professions, in their own way, softened my focus from the strictly scientific, literal, mental lens of my youth to the symbolic, liminal, mythic language of the Self. I began facilitating sacred, transformational group experiences in 2012 and since then, ceremony has become an everyday way of metabolizing and making meaning of the messier parts of life. In 2016, when invited to train with Awaken the Dance founder, Hannah Kinderlerher, I immediately recognized Hannah’s particular blend of movement and music as ceremony of the very best kind –one devoted entirely to embodiment, evolution and enjoyment! In facilitating Awaken the Dance, I have found a long-sought-after means of merging my many passions and I thrive on empowering my fellow dancers to live into more vibrant, inspired and embodied expressions of themselves.
