Katie’s mother introduced her family to energy work when Katie was 12 years old. That initiation woke up her soul and lit her passion for the Divine. She has since studied with many gifted healers, shamans, and spiritual leaders.
As a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Indiana University, Katie holds degrees in Psychology, Fine Art, and East Asian Studies. She taught in Japan for two years, traveled the globe a bit, had business as a wholistic home chef, and moved to Portland in 2000, intending to study naturopathic medicine.
Therapeutic Body and Energy Work
Through a magical confluence of forces, her plans for medical school took a turn; and she became a certified Pilates instructor. Thus began her hands-on therapeutic body and energy work in the fitness industry.
Katie trained individuals and groups for 12 years, incorporating a clear and grounded energetic mind-body focus. Although she no longer teaches Pilates, she continues cueing clients into their bodies in her somatic energy work. Her clients experience an immediate felt connection to their bodies, which provides them a more tangible experience of the energy moving and shifting them.
Flow of Grace
In addition to offering private sessions, Katie now teaches others her unique energy work, Flow of Grace.
It is best described as channeled wisdom with a high voltage current that is aligned with one’s Soul’s destiny, and channeled into the body. It efficiently clears out blockages like historic or cultural conditioning, unacknowledged feelings, & relational interference. It deeply nourishes and fortifies one on many layers and levels of their body and being; from the sparkling edges of a Galactic Soul to the mitochondria of each cell in each organ and tissue. Clients feel renewed, clear, connected and aligned, like everything feels right inside and out. Grace guides and flows into each client, as Katie listens to the guiding intelligence of their body and soul.
After the birth of her daughter in 2004, Katie took a break from seeing clients to focus on healing her postpartum depression. A therapist suggested she find something to feed her soul, so, with David’s support and encouragement, she started painting again. Her abstracted spacious landscapes gave her the beautiful views her soul craved but couldn’t quite see from the windows of their urban home.
Within a year, she began exhibiting and selling her work. She quickly gained recognition among collectors and was a featured artist in Oregon Home Magazine. You can see her work at KatieToddArt.com.
