Karina found her practice at a time in her life when she thought she knew herself well. She fell in love with the self discovery component because it allowed her to find her true self and she reflected the following: “I invested significant time into learning the stories of the people around me. Through yoga, I realized that I neglected to learn my own. I believe yoga is a vessel to teach us the truth about who we are, what we believe, what we came from, how we struggle, and how we are strong.”
Yoga has taken her to a new depth of self awareness and mental endurance, as well as a deeper connection with her spirit. Said best herself, “Our lives are a collection of stories. Having the strength to share our story and stand bravely in our truth is the essence that instills peace and joy. When we learn to let go of what people think, and own our story we gain access to our worthiness - the feeling that we are enough just as we are, and that we are worthy of love and belonging.”
With an extensive background in dance and fitness, and a decade of teaching our youth, she seeks to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, and helping people realize their own truth and share their story.
Karina is known for her authentic, non-judgmental, sincere approach to life and her compassion-centered philosophy. She encourages growth of the physical and spiritual self, citing the interconnectedness to each other, to the world and to the universe at large. She likes reading, dancing, and believes a bean burrito can cure any bad day.
