Katherine is a yoga and meditation educator, spiritual dancer, visual artist, expressive arts facilitator and Reiki Master, who has been working in the field of movement and energy healing since 1992. She is a Certified Yoga Therapist and professional level Kripalu Yoga teacher, E-RYT 500, with specializations in additional areas including Integrative Yoga Therapy with Mudras, Yoga for Cardiac and Cancer Patients, and Pregnancy Yoga. Katherine brings a wealth of training and experience to her role as a yoga educator.
She is the developer of Mystical Moves: Journey through the Chakras, an integrative yoga and expressive arts based modality for supporting self-discovery, enhancing personal empowerment and improving well-being. As an outgrowth of her deep interest in the chakra system and her artistic spark, Katherine created a set of Chakra Insight Cards which teach about the chakras in an embodied way, so you learn how the energy of the chakras interacts with your daily life, promotes self-development, and supports healing. The images (yantras), insights, meditations, and affirmations included on these cards can be used as a focal point for meditation, a springboard for journaling and writing, or to inspire expressive arts making.
Her interest in yoga, dance, and embodiment practices inspired Katherine to develop YES! Dance Your Expressive Self, a community dance celebration where participants are guided to dance from the inside out, playfully explore movement, and feel the vitality of their aliveness moving with others. Prana moves, empowers, and unites us in these dance explorations.
Katherine brings her background in yoga, somatic movement, and the arts to her role as a faculty member in the Expressive & Creative Arts Program, part of the Holistic Graduate Programs at Salve Regina University. This program offers training in utilizing the Arts & Creativity as a vehicle for personal growth and transformation, for facilitators in the fields of counseling, education, healthcare, community action and more.
She is the co-founder along with her husband Christopher Kavi Carbone, of Arts in Celebration! an organization based in Newport, RI, dedicated to bringing creative and healing arts programs to the community.
