More from Catherine:
I’ve had different movement and contemplative influences over the years. Vipassana meditation, Iyengar yoga, Ashtanga yoga each took turns at the center of my practice. I spent a decade as a student of Sofia Diaz, a master teacher of yoga and women’s spiritual practice. Conscious dance and modern dance have been at the heart of my personal movement practice for over 2 decades, and I have spent some time with ballet, hula, and classical Indian dance. I’m currently experimenting with (and loving!) animal locomotion, natural movement and developmental movement practices.
I have a bachelor’s degree in fine arts and life sciences from The Evergreen State College, and I trained at the Rolf Institute (in Colorado and Brazil), graduating as a Certified Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner in 2001. I trained as an Azul Conscious Movement teacher in 2018.
I currently study trauma, attachment and horsemanship with Duey Freeman, and am in training to be a Somatic Experiencing (traumawork) practitioner.
I came to Rolfing 25 years ago for the same reason many of my clients do: I didn’t feel good in my body. I had headaches. TMJ tension. Knee pain. Back pain. Yoga had heightened my awareness of my body, but it seemed all I encountered was more tension. I longed for ease, flexibility, and relief. A series of Rolfing sessions helped all of my pains and unexpectedly made me a much better dancer. With Rolfing, I began to have an experience of embodiment. It's an inquiry that continues to unfold to this day.
I look forward to joining you in your somatic inquiry!
