My name is Katharina Bleinis.

I teach Yoga, Movement, and Mindfulness as a practice of embodied living in Vancouver, British Columbia. My practices are spiritually grounded thought-provoking, and an invitation to Dig Deeper through all the layers of the physical and emotional body. You can check out my classes here.  My decades of experience across lineages, teachers, and lived experiences across time zones, cultures, and populations have led me to discover the transformative tools that guide my teachings.

I am an experienced ERYT500 yoga teacher and certified trauma-informed facilitator with over 3000+ hours spread across teaching, facilitating workshops, and retreats across Asia (Hong Kong, Phillippines, and Bali) and North America. I teach Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa, Pranayama, and Meditation. I am currently in the progress of becoming a trained MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) facilitator through the Centre of Mindfulness Studies.

My roots in yoga stem from Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga but have been blessed and finessed by the feminine powers of Tara Judelle (Embodied Flow) and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen (Body-Mind Centering ®) who have broadened my landscape of somatic movement. My Mindfulness Meditation practice has evolved through years of travel and study to the Eastern World (India, Nepal, and Burma) where I have delved into the experiential learnings of Burmese Theravada Vipassana and Non-Dual Tantrik Studies with Christopher Wallis. 

I welcome an experience that interacts between the layers of our emotional landscape and human experiences.

 

I believe that our body is a container of our past experiences which is shaped by everything that we have ever felt, thought and lived.

 

Through movement-awareness and somatic mindfulness, I welcome a process that invites one to drop into the most authentic version of who we are. I invite you to journey with me to a place where grit meets Grace
