Since a young age, Karine has had a passion for movement and exercise. She trained and coached competitively in gymnastics and dance. After having suffered ankle injuries, which led her to quit training, she realized the importance of safe practice and healthy movement. Karine took her first yoga class in 2013, and quickly fell in love. After attending weekly classes, exploring her personal practice, as well as being engaged in the beautiful community of yoga on social media, she quickly realized she wanted more and could not get enough!
In January 2017, Karine finally followed her dream, and enrolled to Upward Dog’s YTT200hr program with Elizabeth Whissell and Garrett Plumley.
Karine enjoys the beauty of rhythm and flow by linking breath with movement. She incorporates movements for strength and flexibility in her classes, all while offering many options for variations and freedom to be creative. Coming from a background of faith, she invites her students to practice open minded, open hearted, and free of judgement. She wishes to share her love for yoga with her students by incorporating both the mental and physical benefits of yoga throughout practice.
Learn to fall in love with taking care of yourself: Body… Mind… and Spirit.
