...after completing her diploma in Human Kinetics in 2006 from CNC in Prince George Katrina knew she wanted to share health and wellness with others but didn't know in what way. She began practicing yoga for the physical benefits and when she began working for Lululemon in 2008, her love of yoga grew. Then when she became pregnant with her first child her practice deepened as she completely fell in love with how comfortable in her body and self that yoga made her feel during her pregnancy. Katrina enrolled in Trinity Yoga Centre's Yoga and Lifestyle Training program in Kelowna in October 2010 and graduated the following July as a Certified Kripalu Yoga teacher and Holistic Health Consultant. Yoga has helped her remain balanced in her busy life, heal from injury and break old patterns that were no longer serving her. She is very passionate about community and sharing and growing yoga through community. The Kripalu way of teaching has taught her to welcome compassion for herself and others, as well as helped her see that her practice is everyday both on and off the mat and every changing and growing.
Katrina Molendyk instructs the following:
Explore the basics of your yoga practice through the poses and breath work. This class is designed for those wanting a slower, gentle practice and suitable for beginners.
A classical approach to yoga that emphasizes physical detail and focus, while incorporating asana (postures), pranayama (breath work) and relaxation.
In all Yang – there is still Yin. In all Yin, there is still Yang. In Yin Fusion we will balance the practice with some gentle flowing vinyasa, creating internal heat to prepare for movement into longer held Yin Yoga poses. Through awareness in all aspects of the practice we will find the edges of our limitations and subtly work beyond those boundaries with relaxed effort. This is an open class for all yogis.
