Born and raised in Colombia, from 6 years old Catalina trained competitively in gymnastics, acrobatic cheerleading and folkloric dance up till the age of 16. She then decided to shift her focus to dancing, finding inspiration in international styles such as Hip-Hop & Jazz Funk, rather than the Salsa and Latin rhythms that were so popular in her birthplace. In 2006 she entered the international industry with a contract in Macau which finally led her to settle in Hong Kong. Since then, Catalina has trained and danced all around the world and due to her physically demanding career she decided to start practising yoga to help restore and find balance in the body and mind. Over the past few years, Catalina has deepened her studies in Meditation, Tantra and hypnotherapy as well as completing her 200HR Yoga Teacher Training and 100HR Kids Yoga Teacher Training. Catalina’s background combined with experience in a variety of dance styles, brings versatility and a definite spice to her classes!
When she’s not moving, shaking and dancing, Cata is usually playing with her kid and dog, listening to music or learning new things in her downtime.
