Hello! My name is Karina and I am currently located in Colorado! I have been a Yoga/Fitness Instructor for 6 years and look forward to continuing my journey while seeing the world. As a ‘Military Brat’, I have moved consistently my whole life and have lived in over 10 states and now have the ‘itch’ to be on the move and see new places/people. My heart tells me I’ve been born to heal and help others, and through my education in yoga and health, I’ve been able to do so.
I also have a strong passion for animals, and spend a lot of my free time dog-sitting 🙂 Other hobbies include painting, drawing, hiking, aerial silks, hunting down quality coffee, and of course spending time with loved ones!
I look forward to continuing my physical and spiritual journey, and know I will meet some beautiful souls along the way.
A Little More About Me
Though I am skilled and comfortable in teaching many formats, my main Yoga Style would be a mixture of Ananda and Vinyasa Yoga. I love taking time to really focus on breathing, self-awareness and posture before moving into a challenging flow. Giving my clients the opportunity to go deeper in their stretches while staying connected to their body is one of my main goals to help them achieve.
I also aim to continue my education and become certified in Pre-Natal/Post-Natal Yoga, giving guidance and reassurance to those who are bringing or have brought beautiful new life into our world. They deserve to have moments of peace, clarity and self-confidence.
