As well as being the Creative Director + Designer of Femme Body, Katharina Espinoza is a wellness + women’s empowerment mentor, blogger + Reiki practitioner. Her passion is to empower women to live a balanced, active lifestyle – encouraging them to always move with purpose. Katharina feels as centred while immersed in the creative process of designing a new collection as she does while exercising. She believes in holistic health, indulging in life’s luxuries + that she is truly a hippie at heart.
My dream is for women to have what I have: a healthy, intuitive relationship with their own mind and body.
I spent my youth living in resistance with my own body, feeling like I was in a never-ending battle with my own image. I felt disconnected with both my surroundings and myself.
My mindset about who I was and what I was feeling at the time was toxic. I was constantly picking at my body to pieces. My mistake was seeking external acceptance instead of looking inside myself at all that I was and discovering the potential of who I could be.
Something had to change.
I started making the conscious decision to take a different approach, to find my purpose and to move my mental and physical health forward. It took time, however — listening to my mums spiritual teachings about mindset helped me choose a path of deep awakening, personal transition and realisation – I climbed out of the negative fog of energy that had once smothered me. I learned to trust something higher, releasing everything that no longer served me. I had been guided to the re-birth of my own self.
Now, after 10 years of spiritual practice, enacting a positive mindset and living consciously, I’ve seen my life evolve to one that is full of abundance.
Part of this abundance was the creation of FEMME Body; an extension of my life and my self. My intention is to create luxurious active wear and to foster a space of wellness that motivates, inspires and supports women all over the globe to live with confidence and to move with purpose.
Positive practices have also helped me prepare for other challenges. I have recently been forced to dive even deeper within due to a diagnosis of adrenal fatigue and then severe endometriosis. Utter exhaustion has truly tested my strength, mindset and patience. However, I can confidently say that the daily rituals I practice have saved my life and assisted me with refocusing my energies.
I believe mindset is the foundation to daily active living. When you really connect to a place within yourself, you find that results will come to you naturally.
I wish this for all women and hope that my designs and this space serves you well in pursuit of your life’s purpose.
