Karolina discovered yoga when she was in college. “I remember my first class being extremely challenging as I couldn’t do most asanas, but I also recall feeling very content, happy and alive afterwards.” Karolina knew back then, that this practice would be an essential part of her everyday life… and she was right!
When Karolina first started yoga her practice was all about being able to execute the asanas (physical postures) and maintain mindful breathing, but with time the importance of yoga and the reason why she practised had shifted. Today her yoga practice keeps her grounded and reminds her of the interconnectedness of all things. It keeps her accountable for her own integrity expressed through her everyday living.
Karandavasana is Karolina’s favourite pose, as she has been challenged by it and working on it for some time now and she finds there is no time or space for switching off while attempting it. Full presence!
Karolina is 1000+hrs Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, a mentor at the Jivamukti Teacher’s Apprenticeship Program, a certified Yin Yoga Teacher, and a Mysore Program Assistant under guidance of Eileen Hall.
