The bodywork takes an integrative approach that facilitates the body’s self-healing ability to restore and heal towards optimal health on physical and emotional levels. My primary modalities are Craniosacral Therapy and VMI Bodywork.
Somatic Movement is an embodiment practice in movement that listens deeply to our personal internal bodily feeling and experience. The practice brings us some insight and healing through an integration of body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Pilates is an exercise method that balances out our bodies by releasing, mobilising, activating and lengthening the muscles with the use of breath and flowing movement with precise alignment. Body conditioning, pre/post natal, remedial and trauma-informed.
Katsura approached the problems (lower back pain & frozen shoulders) in a very professional, methodical as well as creative way. Pilates has fixed, as well as balanced, my body to a new level well beyond the initial ‘damage repairs’ sought. It formed the platform for many other activities including my hobby, sailing.
I began Pilates as part of my rehabilitation from some serious surgery on my stomach and having been an invalid for a couple of years. Katsura was incredibly careful and sensitive to my condition and yet has been very successful in pushing me onwards. Her teaching has been fundamental in supporting a programme of general rehabilitation which has successfully restored me to fitness and full-time work. I owe Katsura a huge amount and count my meeting her as a hugely important event in my life.
