Katja was born in Slovenia, she is a movement teacher and a visual artist. Her passion for dance and her love of movement ignited her desire to explore the physiological body as well as the human psyche.
Whether drawing her ideas on canvas, or exploring them through movement she is fascinated by the mind body connection and the science of neuroplasticity. Katja has travelled and studied several healing modalities as a result of personally experiencing multiple injuries and trauma. Her injuries inspired her to push beyond her comfort zone and seek answers.
In 2014 she was introduced to the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods and immediately recognized the healing potential. After immersing herself in the methods for the last few years she became a certified instructor in both methods in 2017. In April 2018 Katja qualified as an authorized Pretrainer in the GYROTONIC® method under International Specialized Master Trainer Dana Rader.
