Karine is such a lovely teacher. She's warm, kind and really knowledgeable. She creates a great atmosphere in her classes. I've been doing yoga with her for a couple of years now and I can't recommend her highly enough.
Karine is an exceptional yoga teacher. Her passion, dedication and kindness shine through brightly in every class I have taken with her and I would highly recommend her teaching to all yogis and non yogis alike! No cookie cutter teaching here, Karine treats all of her students with individualistic care and attention. She is very considered and her flows get to the heart of what yoga is all about. So if you are looking for a better, more authentic connection with your body, breath, mind and spirit you will not be disappointed!
Despite my first practice under the guidance of Karine not being in the usual studio environment, the virtual practice was like being in the same room. Articulate and gracious, Karine guides you naturally and authentically throughout, you can feel her passion for yoga and it will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

"Karine provides a wonderful yoga session which always helps to realign my mind, often after a very hard day at Uni. It's a really nice blend of workout/ relax with such a soothing ambience. A great way to start the week off on a Monday evening."

"We are from the University of Birmingham Yoga Society and hired Karine to teach our Wednesday morning class at the Guild of Students and she has been a huge success with our members! Karine is extremely easy to talk to and approachable, she makes you feel comfortable and right at home in her classes. Stress relief is extremely important for our members which are either students or members of staff at the university and her classes are perfect for this. She explains each posture very well with different variations with the option to push yourself that little bit further or to stay where it feels comfortable, with each class focusing on a different area of the body. We have only had Karine since mid October but she is already a real asset to our society and would definitely recommend!"

"Thank you so much for coming and running the sessions, it was the perfect activity for the message of the week, and I think the students got a lot out of it!"

"Karine is an excellent Yoga teacher. Doing a course of 10 Yoga sessions started my Yoga practice off really well. This got me into a great routine. I feel confident now in group classes. I'm really pleased with my progression as she is a fabulous teacher."

"Karine seems to have mastered the art of stress relief, her soothing voice and relaxed teaching style allows you to forget about your hectic working day and anything else that might be plaguing your mind. Lunchtime sessions ensure you go back to work feeling recharged and able to tackle anything the rest of the day may throw at you."
"Starting as a complete Yoga beginner in 2018 I was a little dubious about it, having tried it when I was younger. Back then I saw it as stretching and lying still. How wrong I was! It was more strenuous than I thought it would be, but gradually I have started to see a difference in flexibility and the benefits have been truly life enhancing. I would recommend to anyone who is stressed out (at work or at home), wants to increase flexibility and/or lose weight or feels like they need to release some energy."
"When I started Yoga in September I was looking forward to trying a new experience. It is a lot of stretching, balancing and intermittent cool down phases. Some of the positions are challenging but you get out what you put in, there's also no pressure to push yourself if you're not that way inclined. I do have a warm feeling following the sessions and have seen a difference in flexibility.
Breathing exercises help in remaining chilled in frustrating situations. The Yoga instructor Karine is excellent and very welcoming.; I would definitely recommend it.
