An Oaklander uses walks to inspire an active lifestyle

on March 5, 2013

Meet Oakland resident Katrina Lashea, who leads walks for African-American women in the Bay Area with the goal of improving their health.

Lashea is a yoga instructor and works as a program coordinator for Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre. She is also one of 10 recipients of GirlTrek’s 2012 Trailblazer Fellowship Award, which will sponsor her walking campaigns in the Bay Area throughout the year.

Lashea’s next walking campaign will start Sunday, March 10, at 5:30pm, and will be an eight-week commitment to walk 30 minutes a day, 5 days per week. Participants will meet at the Lake Merritt promenade, near Grand and Lakeshore Ave. For more information, visit and click on “March 10” event.
