The exploration of this life and the human experience through movement and meditation has been a driving force for Katie since she was young. Originally from Maine, Katie has been a part of the dance and movement community for 28 years, studying, choreographing and performing across the country. At 13 years old, Katie began her yoga journey. Katie received her 200-hour YTT at Kripalu in 2010 in order to start facilitating group and private sessions. In 2014, she completed her 500-hour YTT in India via Sacred Lasya. 

 

Katie dedicates a large portion of her time and focus to developing and managing movement programs, which in turn creates successful students and inspires waves of change.

Katie feels honored to join such an amazing team to help manage programs that will offer movement therapy to local as well as international communities. Missoula has been profoundly blessed by her skills and expertise and what she has done with our youth and community so far.

Born and raised in Billings Montana, Sarah has a deep appreciation for the beauty that surrounds her in the Big Sky state. As a current resident of Missoula, Sarah has gained experience cultivating relationships in her community in having worked at both a local public relations firm and a marketing and advertising firm.

 

Sarah is most proud of her work with refugee children in the Missoula community. As a result of teaming up with Soft Landing Missoula, a local nonprofit organization focusing on the long-term resettlement of refugees and immigrants, Sarah has been able to teach movement to the children of families resettling in Missoula since 2018. Whether it has been the moments Sarah taught movement to this incredible group of children, or when Sarah was taught about the experiences of these children in refugee camps through their expression of movement, she was able to witness first-hand the power that movement has on bringing people of all different backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures together.

 

After experiencing the beauty movement facilitated in her program with local refugee youth, Sarah is thrilled to have been given the to contribute to a team that offers movement therapy to her surrounding community as well as communities across the world. Sarah looks forward to contributing her knowledge and expertise to the Movements 4 Movements team.

Camille Locke

movement 

facilitator

  • Camielle's Facebook
  • Camielle's Instagram

Camille began her movement journey at 3 years-old when she started taking ballet classes. She got on pointe when at 13 years-old and started dancing George Balanchine choreography in high school, her experience with anything other than classical ballet. This experience allowed Camille to be a character that wasn’t a cliché on stage, bringing some of myself to the performance. One of Camille's favorite memories of movement was in her senior year of high school when she had the opportunity to dance Swanhilda from the ballet Coppélia.

Camille attends the University of California Santa Barbara. Camille danced in her first modern dance in the spring quarter of her first year. She got to be herself on stage. She had to learn how to get to the floor and treat the bruises that came from her bones taking impact, leading her to learn how to feel grounded. The next year, her class began their creative series that started with improvisation. Camille was actually very closed-minded at first, until she fell in love with not having anyone tell me what to do with her body.

 

Camille learned what agency was in the form of movement. Having danced in a traditional dance form her entire life, she had a very skewed idea of what her body’s natural language was. Camille was used to standing in front of the mirror for hours everyday, thinking about the ways that she was not right or good. Bettering herself meant getting closer to the ideal that was largely unattainable. In her improvisation class, Camille learned that bettering myself was letting her body move the way it wanted, without judgement. 

 

Movement to Camille now is her body’s response. She gives it an environment to exist in, then lets it speak and listens.
