Many people ask, “Why is the studio named Karma?”
Katrina was inspired many years ago by a quote from the Upanishads, written by the ancients of yoga:
Be mindful of your thoughts because
your thoughts become your words
and your words become your actions
and your actions become your character
and your character becomes your karma
How simple and joyful our lives could be if we open our hearts and imagination to positive vibrations. The practice of yoga allows us to come into awareness of what we are giving our thoughts to, and is a beautiful path to learn how to still our minds and open our hearts.
The more we practice being present, the more we can flow with our being, our spirit.
As the owner and founder of Karma Yoga Center in Denver, she brings the bhakti from all wisdom traditions to her yoga classes- singing, chanting, dancing, and journeys into the heart. Katrina fills every yoga session with love. She weaves in the teachings of her yoga mentor Saul David Raye and the cosmic knowings from the lineage of Evolutionary Astrology.
She shares her life journey with her half-side husband Michael Shankara and her two boys Max & Bo .

He offers Energy Healings and Astrology Readings that integrate his shamanic and yogic trainings. Michael & Katrina also provide a free videos series on the New Moons and Fulls called the Alchemical Astrology Report.
