"The eloquence, clarity and integrity of Karina's teaching is something I have yet to experience elsewhere. Transmitting ancient, complex teachings in a way that makes them digestible within a 90 minute class is not an easy feat, and yet in every class with Karina I learned more about 'yoga' and about myself than I have on some longer trainings.

Practicing with her opened up a portal of possibility for me to cultivate these qualities within myself, and also an innate capacity to lead, teach and ultimately embrace life instead of fighting against it.

Endlessly grateful for the time I spent practicing with/learning from her!

Jenny, Ireland

“It has been over a year since I met Karina. Studying with her completely changed my perspective on so many things. It didn’t matter if I had questions about my personal practice, teaching or something I was struggling with “off the mat“, Karina is - and has
always been - there for me with guidance, patience and a sympathetic ear. Because of her I set my own standard for being a teacher higher.

I’ve never experienced classes with more depth and wisdom. One of my favourite things about her teaching might be her gift to put sensations that are normally hard to describe into words. I used to call it Karina’s ability to “paint pictures with words“, which you can
experience not only in her classes and lectures but also in written form online.

I’m very grateful to call Karina my teacher. I highly recommend learning from her. It’ll help you to dig deeper not only in your personal practice or your own way of teaching, but to evolve as a person and in life itself.”

Sarah, Germany

 

“I am so grateful to call Karina my teacher. Not only is she a dedicated and passionate Yogini with a wealth of knowledge to share, but a beautifully kind and warm hearted teacher and mentor. Karina’s approach to teaching Yoga and guiding her students is both grounded and
heartfelt. Her eloquence perfectly translates these ancient wisdoms and weaves them seamlessly with our modern everyday lives.”

Amélie, UK

Karina is an exceptional teacher, inspiring woman, and all-round wonderful human being. She has a unique way of evoking deep thoughts and feelings throughout practice through her use of language and knowledge of the science of sequencing.

She makes intricate and abstract teachings within the yoga tradition feel simple, accessible and relatable by translating them into a felt experience. Her classes leave me feeling pure, embodied and at home within myself, and I always learn something of value.

Karina is an intelligent, poetic and charismatic teacher and a considerate, thoughtful mentor. She really sees each individual for who they are and offers support and guidance in a way that nurtures and supports their innate strengths and gifts.

She is honest, insightful and full of heart. Karina’s teaching has been pivotal for me as a student, and continues to enrich my experience of and attitude towards practice, and life in general. She’s a true gem!

Aimee, New Zealand

experience these sacred teachings

You don’t have to conform to the mainstream ideal of what it means to live a good life. You have to be willing to ask brave questions, to trust the answers, and shed everything that stands in the way of your potential.

I will facilitate this journey for you, and together we’ll dive more deeply into the sacred teachings of this tradition, to experience a life of richness, authenticity and freedom.

about me

Karina smiling in floral dress sitting in front of stone wall

The physical practice of yoga is often what draws us in, and yet, it is a drop in the ocean of yoga’s potential. Yoga is a comprehensive system that transforms life inside and out, stripping away everything we’re not so we can become who we’re meant to be.

It does this on a human level and it does this on a spiritual level. It helps us uncover our purpose and shows us how to live it with greater empowerment, integrity and kindness.

While the physical practices of yoga are profound on their own, they’re the least of what yoga offers and they’re only one small part of what I teach. 

I practice and teach within a traditional yogic lineage - many thousands of years old - it’s these teachings I offer in this training: ‘ancient wisdom for modern yogis’.

I have been the lead teacher/co-teacher on over forty 200h and 300h teacher training programs. This signature course integrates all the learnings from my career to date, to create a comprehensive, transformative and empowering program.

I’m ready to facilitate this journey for you. I can’t wait to start!

 

With love,

Karina

what's inside

The teachings that will transform you...

This course is special because it’s underpinned by traditional lineage-based teachings. While many courses use a ‘pick-and-mix’ approach, when you learn within a lineage, the effectiveness and integrity of the teachings are guaranteed: this is a true experience of ancient wisdom, offered to you; a modern yogi.

Over a 6-month period you’ll integrate the teachings from each module with the support of your fellow students. You’ll have the time and  space to truly embody the teachings in an intimate journey through 6 core modules, whilst maintaining your work/home life balance. 

The course is structured using a combination of live sessions, pre-recorded material, asana, pranayama and meditation practices, practical sessions, homework assignments and supplementary reading material. Each week you’ll be given specific content to work through which will prepare you for the live weekends each month.

In these comprehensive modules you will learn:

  • To allow me (as your teacher) to catch any issues as they arise to ensure I serve you effectively all the way through the course!

I did my first teacher training with Karina six years ago and since then have taught many yoga classes and trainings myself. Her way of guiding me on the path has never failed me as a teacher.

Last year, I did another yoga teacher training with her. She is a teacher who never stops learning and excelling herself. She has always inspired me like this. I’ve always expected the best from her and always got more than I expected.

Karina is my compass in this very confusing yoga world. I live on the other side of the world but she has always been there when I needed her.

It is amazing to have a teacher who is so knowledgeable and also has an amazing way of sharing her knowledge. She never uses mystical language to create an illusion of ‘yogicness’.

She is a genuine yogi, walking her path, continuously questioning and expanding. I am very proud to be trained by her and I am still seeking ways to learn from her.

Zeynep, Turkey

Karina is not only a wonderful, knowledgeable teacher but also a radiant woman shining very bright. She embodies the practice of yoga in the most graceful and honourable way.

Karina understands just perfectly how to translate this ancient tradition into modern life while honouring its sacred teachings. I had several mentoring sessions with her and she intuitively knew how to support me in the most nourishing and uplifting way during a time when I felt stuck. Her sense of understanding of my needs, and her guidance, helped me to bring clarity into what I wanted to share and to gain back the power of my true voice as a yoga teacher.

She is a rare find and I am forever grateful for her unconditional dedication to the path which helped me to grow and evolve.

Veronique, Bali

Karina passes on these ancient teachings in a way that is, on the one hand, precise and on the other hand, magical. She is a ray of sunshine, who teaches the science of yoga, while also encouraging you to listen to your intuition and find your own unique expression.  She
teaches in a way that you can’t help but sit up, take notice, do the work and see how it improves your life. Most importantly, Karina embodies what she teaches in such a luminous and beautiful way. I’m so grateful to have her as my teacher.

Melissa, Australia

I met Karina in 2017, and after one practice with her I decided (without her knowing) that she was going to be my mentor. As a teacher, Karina’s attention to detail and intentional teaching style sets her apart, but it is her knowledge, experience, and way of communicating that makes her an incredible trainer and mentor.

Karina is professional, down to earth, funny, and shares the tradition of yoga in a way that is tangible, digestible and relatable. I feel so honoured to learn from someone who demonstrates such integrity as a teacher and as a human being. Karina’s mentorship brings so much to my life and my practice. To have someone in my corner while I follow this path is extremely beneficial for my practice, my teaching and my students. Karina embodies the teachings of yoga, which I believe is a true reflection of her own dedication and commitment to practice.
