Philosophy / Practice
Therapeutic yoga is a holistic modality that includes the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual parts of you in the process of healing, growth, and personal development. Using the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy method, I draw from the best of yoga philosophy, Buddhist mindfulness, the latest neuroscience, client-centered psychology, and the contemplative path
I invite you to explore the services I offer and find the one that speaks to your needs. I look forward to working with you.

"I meet many people who live in their heads or take feelings as facts, without any awareness of the wisdom their bodies hold. Katrina is uniquely gifted at inviting people into their bodies and into the process of healing and wholeness that begins when constriction opens. She conveys respect for each person's journey and, as a person, is grounded and committed to her own on-going personal and professional growth work."
