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!Monica Palekar

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
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!!Dena B.
