Katrin Heuser is originally from Germany and has been living in the UK since 1998. Movement has always been a significant part of her life, from ballet and dance in one form or another, while partly performing, partly teaching, partly just for fun. She feels lucky that she has had the opportunity to work with many inspirational movement artists. When Katrin discovered yoga, she found there was a wholeness to yoga that goes way beyond the physical exercise and was influenced by countless types of yoga, from dynamic Vinyasa flow to Hatha and Sivananda Yoga, to Vanda Scaravelli’s approach to yoga. Amongst her influences as teachers are Marc Woolford, Bill Wood, Fairlie Gibson, Gary Carter, Cathrine Annis, Mary Mackie and Peter Blackaby.
As well as the 500h Level 4 NVQ Diploma Course with the British Wheel of Yoga, Katrin has completed advanced practitioner training in Thai Yoga Massage, with Ralf Marzen of the Mudita School of Thai Yoga Massage. Aside from giving treatments, she now also co-teaches the London practitioner courses at Mudita.
2 Minute Interview:
How does your workshop at NOW Festival relate to being in the moment?
Yoga allows us to come a little closer to experiencing the true inner Self. The Self never changes, but is always fresh. The present moment is just that, it never changes, but it is always fresh.
What are you most looking forward to doing within your NOW Festival slot?
What I love teaching about yoga the most is simply being able to share my yoga and to be taught by my students. It never ceases to amaze me, what can happen in a practice.
At NOW Festival (Wilderness):
In these yoga sessions we will work in a playful way to explore how the release of tension, accessing deeper strength and creating space can develop a sense of freedom in the body and mind. In this process, we might gain a glimpse of what it feels like to be just a bit more in the present moment . It will be about the journey getting into the posture rather than the end posture and exploring a fun flow of movement, making the sessions suitable for any age, shape, size, or degree of flexibility.
