Stories, art, and paying attention to the felt experience of body and life keep her grounded and inspired.
Current training : Mind Body Studies
Catherine is currently a student with the Mind Body Studies Academy , where she is discovering beautiful and direct methods for reprogramming our patterns of movement. It develops the capacity for easeful, graceful movements using the whole body, rather than straining one part of ourselves. This work is based on Feldenkrais and supported by new developments in science regarding neuroplasticity and the potential of the brain to remodel rapidly.
