About

Kristine Karpinski (Kris) 

Registered Massage Therapist
Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist
Somatic Movement Educator & Therapist
Natural Health Practitioner, Certified Doula, BA  

An avid learner with an extremely curious spirit, I have collectively trained in, practiced and taught various healing modalities, body-centered therapies and movement methods for over 30 years.  Starting at a young age in dance, drama and music, I went on to study psychology and theatre in university, and developed a lifelong passion for somatic, holistic and expressive art approaches.

I hold certifications in many different methods of Bodywork, Yoga, Conscious Dance, Somatic Movement and Energy Healing.  I've been in full-time private practice for over 25 years, and have taught and assisted programs in numerous places, including the Ottawa Theatre School, Kripalu Yoga Centre, the Leven Institute, The Clinic Upstairs, Whole Family Centre, and the International Academy of Natural Health Sciences.
