Karen is passionate about yoga and about life. The word yoga means to unite so as we practice yoga both on and off the mat we unite our physical body with our higher self, the true being of who we really are.
She lives in a small village at the foot of the South Downs near Lewes, East Sussex and discovered yoga during her first pregnancy. Twenty-one years later, plus two more children and lots of animals, she continues to practice regularly be it asana (postures), pranayama (breath awareness) or relaxation and meditation.
She decided to be a ‘stay at home mum’ thereby creating a small property portfolio which she still manages herself. She is a qualified hypnotherapist, reiki healer and has also studied with Barbara Brennan’s Hands of Light School in Austria for 3 years and is a qualified Life Alignment Therapist. She has has partaken Jon Kabat-Zinn’s course on Mindfulness and intends to embrace her first Vipassana (10 day silent meditation) in the near future. She has been described as ‘magical, fanciful, encouraging and inspiring the belief that dreams can be manifest. She is natural in giving enthusiastic support’.
Karen qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2016 (500 hours Diploma) and runs regular classes in Lewes plus bi-monthly workshops locally as well as retreats in beautiful locations around the world. She also teaches pregnancy yoga and is available one-to-one.
This year she will be learning to teach SUP yoga (Stand Up Paddle Board)
