About YOGAnnick

The ancient practice of Yoga is thousands of years old and originated in Northern India. Translated from Sanskrit (the language of Yoga), the word Yoga means yoke or union. ​ This union can be interpreted to a union between the physical body, the mind, and on a deeper level our soul or spirit. It can also be understood as a connection to not only oneself, but to the world around us. Whether you are looking to strengthen the body and become fitter and more flexible, learn to deal with stress and anxiety, live more mindfully and in the present moment, or a combination of many elements- Yoga really can take you on a wonderful journey of self discovery and understanding. Yoga is the journey of the self, to the self, through the self - The Bhagavad Gita A bit of background into my own personal journey. A cliche maybe, but a true story none the less- after running into a pretty tough period in my life, I believe that Yoga found me. It had, and continues to have a huge impact on my life- both on and off the mat. ​I was so inspired to learn more myself, and to be able to share this amazing practice with others that I embarked on a 2 year 200 hour teacher training course. Since qualifying I have quit a long term corporate career to follow my passion of sharing Yoga with others, and promoting a happier and healthier lifestyle through more holistic based approaches. There are many misconceptions about Yoga, including that it is just about being able to touch your toes or do a handstand (maybe we have social media to thank for that)! Some think it is a very serious or even religious practice. Although physical movement (asana) is a part of Yoga, as a teacher I want to share with people that Yoga is so much more than this. It is a wonderful and inclusive practice that I truly believe can create balance and harmony of both body and mind, leading us to live more compassionately towards ourselves and others. I teach regular studio classes, private Yoga, University Yoga and Corporate Karma (Yoga in the workplace). I am also hugely passionate about trying to share Yoga with everyone, and work with charities and community projects in an effort to do so. Classes/styles vary including Hatha based complete beginners (including warm beginners Yoga), more energising Vinyasa Flow for beginners and beyond, and Yin/Yang fusion. Classes remain true to the traditional roots of Yoga, combining physical practice (asana), breathing (pranayama), relaxation and meditation. Much of which can be taken off the mat and into our everyday lives. We can read into an assigned label for a class, or a "style" of Yoga that is referred to- (effectively referring to the lineage), and I often get asked what type of Yoga I teach. The answer in its simplest form is essentially what I teach is just Yoga. Movement of body, stillness of mind, greater connection to self. ​If you are interested in finding out more, take a look at my website, or feel free to contact me. I would love to hear from you. The divine within me bows down to the divine within you - Namaste

Sarah C.'s review on May 02, 2018

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.

Ellie R.'s review on Nov 09, 2017

We are from the University of Birmingham Yoga Society and hired Karine to teacher 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!

Katie S.'s review on Jul 24, 2017

A friend and I had several one on one sessions with karine at the start of our yoga practice both relatively new begginers. We both throughly enjoyed these sessions and found them very beneficial for our practice. I found Karine's explanation of technique and form advanced my understanding of alignment in postures and the fact that you don't always have to go the furthest into a posture to feel the best benefits. This understanding and extra explanation provided by karine in a way easy to understand has benefitted further practice in larger groups where that explanation is perhaps not possible to provide. Karine exhibits great knowledge and professionalism during her classes and I would highly recommend taking her classes to any ability level. I look forward to having a class with Karine again soon.

Gary T.'s review on Jul 18, 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Karine, this being my first private lesson I wasn't sure what to expect. She has very high levels of professionalism and great knowledge of the physical & spiritual aspects of yoga. I found her words were easy to relate to and made me feel completely as ease in the lesson. I would highly recommend Karine to all levels of ability and interests in yoga, I will definitely be booking again soon.
