Teaching from the heart, Karen loves to combine creative sequencing, yogic philosophy and some humour into her classes. After all, yoga is fun too! Trained in the ISHTA lineage of yoga (Integrated Science of Hatha Tantra and Ayurveda), a class with Karen will leave you feeling peaceful, balanced, nourished and content regardless of how you arrived on the mat. Karen found yoga in her early twenties (or maybe it was the other way around) after a challenging childhood that had many more downs than ups. However, since committing to teacher training, it has absolutely transformed Karen’s life, with the most valuable lesson being self-love. Karen acknowledges the inspirational teachers who have helped her on her yoga journey and continues to learn every single day recognising that she is now an eternal student of yoga. TKV Desikachar’s quote, best sums up how yoga has impacted Karen’s life:“The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships”.
