Karen’s yoga journey started in 2001 when she joined a local yoga class hoping to minimize the regular pain experienced at the end of the working day due to ‘computer back’. It was through learning to manage her back problems via the practices of yoga that the yoga journey began.
Realising that there was so much more to yoga than asana (posture), Karen completed a two year Yoga Teacher Trainer’s qualification.
Having experienced the benefits of a regular yoga practice, Karen now enjoys sharing her learning and the benefits of yoga with others. Karen teaches a flowing vinyasa style of yoga including general, gentle and prenatal classes, where students are encouraged to work at a level that is suitable to their needs.
Karen’s personal practice, diagnosis of endometriosis, food intolerances and the ongoing management of back pain have led her to a deeper connection with the body and the challenges of staying in the moment. Listening to the body and accepting what it is telling you is a tough lesson to learn. It teaches us that everyday is different and as a result our practice of yoga should reflect these differences.
