Yoga has become a system of exercise linked to the fitness industry.  It's become a tool of 'mindfulness' and self help.  It's a product, a hawked good tangled up with gear, change your life schemes, and social media.

I was taught - I have experienced -  yoga as more than this.  My teaching tries to help others discover and integrate the deeper aspects of a yoga practice.  I want to help folks find and practice a yoga that is continuously developing, a yoga that helps us live better lives, a yoga that speaks to the whole of who we are.

What I offer here are yoga teachings that guide you through the depth and the breadth of Yoga.  You can get a yoga workout anywhere.  But finding the depth is hard.  Finding your own way is hard.

Most modern yoga teaching is reduced to asana (postural) practice. This loses the big picture of what yoga sadhana (personal practice) is really about.  The focus is on performing postures, not on what yoga can mean for the individual practitioner.  I am more interested in what Yoga really means to us and for us.  I am interested in how Yoga changes and ignites human lives.

Join me in exploring the ways yoga sadhana can help us integrate the many aspects of ourselves, rehabilitate the parts of us that have fallen into imbalance, and develop the full range of our potential.  Yoga is not 'a path', but your path.

Each week you'll have access to:


*Workshops: learn stuff that simply can't be taught in drop in classes. These classes will work to build your understanding of how the body works and what asana does. This is where anatomy geeks and deeper understandings of biomechanics come to play.


*30-60 Mindful movement practice: (less workshop, more dailiness) these sequences are less about 'breaking it down' and more about getting the effects. Just enough moving to re calibrate the nervous system, get into the body, and reframe your day.


* The Techniques sessions: ongoing explorations help you see for yourself the missing steps that have kept you from sustainable meditation practices. You'll also see, for yourself, the way yogic practices open your life and change the way you move, in it. These practices will help you 'connect the dots' in understanding asana, meditation, who you are, and what is possible. Along the way, you'll focus your mind, reduce your stress, come back toward balance & establish a regular routine.

Take what you need. Don't worry about the rest. Just take what you need.

Karin is teaching directly to

*those students who have a sense that yoga might help them, but are turned off by the yoga industry
*those who have been injured or simply gotten bored and stuck by the way yoga is generally taught.
*students who want more than 'postures'.
*students ready for a teacher who will guide you into finding your own answers
*teachers looking to embody their own transformation and become better guides

I'm trying to take the esoteric tradition and makes it personally relevant. To reach for your own heart, allowing students to be in their own body, and provoke an inquiry into what and who we truly are.

I recommend you invest in yoga blocks, something like a strap or belt, a mexican style blanket, and a large yoga bolster (google it). If you could look at your own schedule and set aside 'class time' at the same time every week, your progress will blossom. Even when you miss a week.

Karin's work has been handed down directly through the lineage of Sri T. Krishnamacharya. This practice will create sustainable transformation within you and your relationships.
