Something MAGICAL is happening.

KineOasis is an exploratory and creative merger of husband and wife team Catrina Choate-Heretoiu and Bogdan Heretoiu - movement educators dedicated to the exploration of Human Expression through Movement.

We welcome you to a mindset of holding and moving through your own sacred, safe space. A space of connection, relief, exploration, and respite from the daily noise.

Join us anytime to explore how Movement can be used to improve quality of life, assist in personal transformation, and offer a powerful portal into a personal space of joyful empowerment.

A Safe Space to be YOU.

     ➢  Brief Introduction

We have officially become "Wisconsonites" and our classes are Open for Enrollment in Madison, WI.

Depending on the Program, we offer classes for Kids, Youth, Adult or Senior classes.

Here is what to look forward to - explore and join us for a truly unique experience: Adult SomaBallet with Catrina, The Grasshoppers Club with Bo (Youth & Family Practice), Private Feldenkrais® sessions with Catrina, and more to come.

     ➢  SomaStudies

At Soma Studies, we work with skeletal alignment to allow for a balanced use of muscle effort to take place.

However, we also investigate the articulation and interaction of thinking, feeling, sensing, and moving.

We observe the intricacies between motivation, intention, and action while we listen to our own reactions and natural responses to the world around us.

If we understand what we do and how we do it, then and only then, can we achieve the desired outcome. With curiosity and exploration, the details of movement and body will unfold into a beautiful flow of Physical Fluency.

"Catrina's Awareness Through Movement classes offer pathways to increased body knowledge and a harmonious and peaceful mind-body connection."


Former School Director, The School of Sacramento Ballet

     ➢  The Grasshoppers Club

The Grasshoppers Method is the result of Bogdan's personal journey through life and through Martial Arts studies including encounters with countless fellow practitioners, students, and instructors over 40+ years of "hitting the mats".

"The Grasshopper Method emerged as a combination of all the knowledge passed onto me or as a result of my passionate exploration of movement principles applied within the context of my real day to day life. It is - as the saying goes - my way of life and living."

Please join us on a journey of curiosity and exploration of Martial Arts. We offer a Family-friendly exploratory Martial Arts Program for all ages and all skills and a FREE ONLINE COMMUNITY away from marketing, ads, and all that digital pollution.
