Katrina is a yoga teacher and writer offering practical tools for living with trauma. As the sister, daughter, and granddaughter of military veterans, Katrina became interested in a way to help bridge the gap between yoga world and military world. Her path includes 10+ years of teaching, a few thousand hours of yoga training, a couple of years in a research lab, and thousands of trauma-informed classes, workshops, and trainings. In 2017, Katrina opened Unbound to offer private therapeutic yoga practices for people who want to learn tools to live with – and find growth from – their experiences.

Katrina teaches a weekly class at the Boulder Veterans Center, open to combat veterans actively in treatment at the center. It’s her favorite class…don’t tell the others.
