I first created the bend burn breathe (b3) ethos out of my passion for yoga, weight training and heart-pumping cardio – now it’s so much more. bend burn breathe is a philosophy of wellbeing. It’s a blueprint for powerful change built on the principles of plasticity, adaptability, and creativity.
bend: Harness the power of a flexible mind. Cultivate a positive mindset that is open to new ways of thinking, being, and behaving.
burn: Live inside an efficient body. Optimize your health by moving more, eating well, and sleeping soundly.
breathe: Ignite your passion and creativity. Engage in activities that set your heart free.
KATHERINE ADAMENKO, MA, CHC, RYT, CPT
athlete, artist, yogi, and coach
I’ve lived my entire life in the worlds of exercise and the arts. I began dancing at age 3 and began bodybuilding at age 18 and I haven’t stopped since. Throughout my life, I’ve cultivated what I like to call “the science and art of living.”
I am fascinated with exercise science, positive psychology, and behavior change as much as I am dedicated to the stage, the page and the studio.
I am blessed to have trained, studied, and performed with an international array of artists, professors, and fitness experts who have informed the basis of the b3 methodology.
I specialize in corporate wellness, designing and managing award-winning programming. I currently serve as the Wellness Coach and Program Manager for a major multi-billion dollar Fortune 100 company here in NYC. I am blessed to have the opportunity to motivate and inspire employees to live healthier and happier lives every day whether it’s through a coaching session, yoga class, workshop, webinar, or special event.
As a wellness coach and certified yoga teacher, I know the vital importance of a flexible mind and body. As a personal trainer, and group fitness and cycle instructor, I have a pretty good idea how to help you get moving and to keep you motivated. As an arts educator and performing artist, I can help you unleash your innate creativity.
This blog is part memoir and part coaching – spiced with honesty, humor, and tips along the way. I’ll talk about teaching, training, and all about the pursuit of happiness and wellbeing. I’ll also share insights from the wellness industry experts I am fortunate to work with. I am always discovering new things to read and listen to. I will share it all!
be flexible, be fit, and be free!
