About Katherine

ORIGIN

Living a successful life with an advanced MBA degree from a top prestigious business school and working as a marketing executive in a world-class Fortune 500 corporation I had the dream .. the job, the achievement, the stuff. I loved my work but didn’t set strong enough boundaries. I wanted to prove myself as a woman in the corporate world. And, soon I was burned out and depleted! 

I needed balance and time for something that fed my soul. I dove into yoga in 1994 and it’s been a part of my life since. Years later I stumbled upon Kundalini Yoga, a different kind of yoga than I had ever experienced. I had to have it as part of my routine. I didn’t realize it at the time but, the meditation and connection I made to myself opened up something in me that felt so right! Then, when I was pregnant I added Kundalini Prenatal Yoga to my routine. During this time I realized just how profound Kundalini Yoga IS!  I know the bond and connection I developed with my son in utero came out of this weekly prenatal practice. And, it saw me through my son’s birth in ways I never could have imagined and for that I am forEVER grateful.

CONNECTION

Years later after I had left my corporate life and while raising my son once again I thought I had the life! But, as life happens I got thrown a whopper. So, I needed to figure out what was next and it needed to be fulfilling! Time to redefine myself. I went deep .. how was I going to redefine myself?

For my own personal happiness I knew I had to connect with what I truly wanted to be a force behind in this world and to do my part for good in a bigger way. I was being called to align with my truth. Not anyone else’s! My son gave me the ultimate gift; I needed to be true to me so, I could teach him how to be true to himself. I wanted to live with joy and in some way, however small, contribute to making this world a better place for everyone’s future.

Kundalini Yoga was again the tool that helped me to shed light on that vision. Shortly thereafter, I found myself in yoga trainings. Little did I realize little seeds had been planted for over two decades through my corporate marketing work and yoga both. I loved learning about the body and how the science behind food and supplements affected health. So, believe it or not, all this lifelong experience brought me to what I aspire to offer the creative force in this world; WOMEN.

INTUITION

A woman’s intuition is strongest while pregnant and this is what I help pregnant women to connect to and trust during their pregnancy. Strengthening this internal guidance system, to believe in it and to trust it to give their baby the healthiest, safest, and most connected beginning … A beginning that starts in utero, way before this baby is in your arms gazing with love into your eyes. This connection beginning in utero shapes your birthing experience, as well as, your baby’s existence. It’s just the beginning of your lifelong journey together.

Meet and get to know the beautiful, powerful pregnant woman that you may not yet know that intimately. This feminine strength is why I’m an ambassador for these baby souls and for you.

You have so much to give this soulful baby that has found its way to YOU. And, with this practice and trust in yourself:

  • you’ll feel comfort in knowing your body will be prepared and ready for birth

  • you’ll have practice working with your mind to handle and navigate the natural work that comes with birth

  • you’ll have practice in working together with your baby (talking and listening to) that will serve the birthing process

  • your body will be prepared having strength and pliability in the different muscles used in birth

  • the right movements needed for you, your body and/or baby in birth will be felt by you

  • the lessons (and there will be many) you and your baby bring to one another in this life will have a greater ease

  • the dream relationship you already imagined will be elevated into even more than you could have ever imagined

“Motherhood is the biggest gamble in the world. It is the glorious life force. It’s huge and scary — it’s an act of infinite optimism.”
