About me

Kālyana is her Sanskrit name, Karine is her French one. Born in France now based in New York; she was introduced to yoga in India in 2003, and has been practicing since then. She graduated from Integral Yoga Institute, in NYC, Asanas and Pranayama : Level I 200-Hour; Asanas and Pranayama : Intermediate Level II 176-Hour, Gentle and Chair training 100-Hour; and Raja Yoga, the philosophy and psychology of yoga 80-Hour.
She is as well a certified kids yoga teacher, graduated from Kidding Around Yoga school.
Kālyana is a passionate, spiritual, and artistic person, also dedicated, and practical.
Her background is rich in travel, fitness, nutrition and creative work, all formative experiences that have helped her teach spiritual well being, wholeness, and healthy living.

Her everyday life embraces yoga, meditation, organic living, and the learning of spiritual teachings. This routine helps her to convey a sense of stability, and mindfulness to students, and others.
As an Integral Yoga Hatha teacher she approaches each class as a complete yoga practice, experiencing chanting, asānas or physical poses, a guided deep relaxation, prānayama or breathing techniques, and a brief meditation.
Her passion is to create and lead people through what she calls ‘Inspired Yoga Travels’ around the world, known as well as ‘Yoga Vacations'. One country; one theme. ‘Inspired' stands for creativity; ‘Yoga' stands for learning a healthy life style, and Travels/Vacations for FUN, as she believes life is meant to be fun, and lived in joy!

Success stories

  • Karine is an amazing yoga teacher. She carefully assesses your physical condition before beginning each class and tailors the asnas to what you can handle on a particular day. That is not to say that she won’t challenge your limits—she is always helping to find the balance between comfort and effort. Under her direction you will chant, breathe and become a much better yogi. I have worked with her for a year and my only lament is that I didn’t find her earlier!

    Private regular student

  • Karine's yoga teaching is gentle, thorough and enlightening. She has really helped alleviate my chronic back pain caused by scoliosis. After yoga class with Karine, my mind and body are refreshed and restored.

    Lynn Honneyset

    Regular student

  • I am at peace with Karine...I have been taking her class for the past year and being a yoga teacher I rejoice in her knowledge and guidance. Her classes relax me, center me and allows me to reach my potential. Her serenity and her energy brings me to the essentials and reminds me why I fell in love with the practice of yoga.

    Vanessa Nudget

    Yoga teacher and student

  • As a first time yoga student, I was a bit nervous to try, but Karine was very patient, calm and her love of yoga made me feel relaxed. I always heard yoga is good for the mind and the body, and now after taking Karine's class I truly believe it! I will be taking many more. Thanks Karine!!
