■Profile

Karen began her Yoga practice in Thailand in 1995 after meeting her first Yoga teacher. She spent 5 years of initial practice very much in isolation under the guidance of her teacher and then began to study with several local teachers, based on Koh Samui. She moved to Bangkok and here continued her studies at the Iyengar Yoga Studio where she also began to assist with the newly formed kids Yoga Program. Karen has been working with children for the last 23 years, for a greater portion of that time as an art teacher but over the last 9 years as a children’s yoga teacher.
She left Thailand after 12 years to follow her passions and train as a Yoga teacher with Nicky Knoff in Cairns and with Kylie Peters of Simply Kids in Sydney. Shortly afterwards she settled in the Byron shire. Karen began teaching adults locally and children in the local Primary and High schools. As an experienced Artist and Art teacher, Karen has been combining her talents to recently create the Yoga and Art holiday program at the Red Tent Yoga. Whilst here in the Shire she met Rachel Zinman who opened the door in her life and heart to the practice of Bhakti and Kirtan.
