Hi, Karin here

GET TO KNOW ME BETTER - READ ON HERE

MAHA YOGA IS MY SIGNATURE TEACHING STYLE AND METHODOLOGY EVOLVED OVER 20 YEARS OF PRACTICING AND TEACHING STUDENTS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD COMBINED WITH MY TRAINING IN CORRECTIVE EXERCISE, and NUTRITION & HEALTH COACHING.

I  am very grateful and fortunate to be able to practice yoga with Karin. She is a brilliantly skilled, enthusiastic and patient yoga instructor. I have always been impressed by her deep and vast knowledge of yoga. She personally and expertly shares her knowledge of anatomy, philosophy and spiritualism to all of her students. She enthusiastically guides her students in every practice with a passion that is infectious. - Helen Lerman (USA)

"Yoga is a gift to myself. Karin is a gift to yoga and to those of us who know and practice with her."

It’s your passion I can feel when I step into your class. Thank you for sharing your lovely spirit, knowledge and love for a deeper understanding of yoga. I love the focus and the mindfulness.  I can’t wait to be back in your class! - Julia Dujmovits (Austria)

"Your teaching is truly inspirational – it made me a better person and athlete."

It takes a great teacher like Karin to hold space for students to attune. Her classes are meticulously sequenced and paced, her language clean and precise, she takes time to align students carefully and she incorporates spirituality in just the right dose for everybody!  Her classes are both traditional and innovative and her sense of humor and light are uplifting. My favorite thing is that she is not afraid to invite students to work deeply. - Becca Greenband  (USA)

"She also leads by example both on and off the mat which is very important on the yoga path."

“Inspired”, is the first word that comes to mind as a student of Karin’s. Her practice and teachings she shares are uplifting and also grounded in the practicality of living yoga day by day.  Everyday I am grateful for my friend, my teacher, my sister! - Taylor Binda (USA)

"She has taught me not only how to trust myself and my strength, but also to take leaps of faith and trust the faith zone…on the mat and in the world."

Clear! Knowledgeable! Precise but Forgiving! She has all what teachers need to have. I started my Yoga practice in my late 40’s but many times I was reluctant to practice until I met Karin! Yoga transformed my body but that was just a small part. It is transforming my life in every dimension. I recommend her from the bottom of my heart. - Asami Suzuki (Japan)

"She finally made me understand the right meaning of Yoga. Now, I do Yoga everyday!"

Karin is the best teacher I’ve ever met. Every class you learn something new. Yoga never gets boring with her, and the studio has a really great atmosphere and people. LOVE IT! - Ben Shoval (USA)

"Every class you learn something new."

"Know yourself, Heal Yourself".  Yoga is a healing practice.  Self Observation and self reflection are the foundation of self awareness and true integration of Mind - Body - Spirit.  No woo woo stuff but I do contain the physical practice within the insightful and inspiring yogic philosophy teachings that help you take your practice off the mat and out into your daily life.  !!!

we make it about
more than just the poses

Teaching, rather than merely instructing,  I dont simply demonstrate at the front of the class. I offer precise verbal instructions and gentle adjustments helping you explore and define the safe edges of your practice with patience and care. You will hear "go for it" as much as "no, not yet...."

a humble, inclusive learning environment.

My certifications in Personal Training and Corrective Exercise bring a strong focus on intelligent sequencing and the use of props, variations and suitable progressions so that students may take ownership of their personal practice and progress safely even in a group class.

INTELLIGENT  sequencing for a safe practice

THE
MAHA EXPERIENCE

I teach people, not poses.

I recognize your individuality and honor your unique expression of the practice.

I hold a space for self reflection as opposed to the constant seeking of perfection.

I believe that yoga is a lifelong journey and our classrooms are our playgrounds and laboratories where we get to make magic happen!

I believe that learning and growing is FUN!

I commit to always being and doing my best as your teacher, through ongoing study and personal practice.
