An inquisitive, embodied and powerful approach to yoga practice

Understanding human embodiment, consciousness and capacity for change from the inside

Karin has a gift for making embodiment, yoga and mindfulness principles accessible and useful to everyone.

How you are as a body affects your whole life, and it is something you have the power to change.


She introduces students to the philosophies and practices of yoga, embodiment and mindfulness in a way that is relevant and applicable to modern lifestyles. She encourages students to expand their practice into their lives off the mat to gain freedom from unhelpful habitual patterns, whether physical or mental.


"Yoga must not be practised to control the body: it is the opposite, it must bring freedom to the body, all the freedom it needs." (Vanda Scaravelli, 1908 - 1999)

Karin's yoga and teaching practice is inspired by Vanda Scaravelli's teaching of postural yoga, her training as an Embodied Yoga Principles tutor, embodied facilitator and coach and her practice of Tibetan Buddhism and Zen (in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh).



Karin teaches weekly morning and evening classes (currently at Canterbury Yoga and online.
