Yoga Instructor Calgary - Karine

Corporate and in-Home Yoga classes Calgary

For corporate or in-home yoga classes 

Born and raised in Mexico City, I moved to Calgary in 2011. 

I have a background in dance. Always drawn to the fitness industry, I have explored a variety of techniques and offerings. Before fully immersing in yoga, I taught Jazzercise and Dailey Method (barre). I occasionally teach mat pilates as well. In yoga, I have trained in vinyassa/flow and yin. I draw from all these disciplines to create classes that meet the student's needs and expectations. 

My recent studies focus on meditation and Yoga Nidra. 

I teach from what I experience in my personal practice, and always hoping to make a difference in the way people relate to their bodies, allowing them to find ease of movement to enjoy their everyday activities.  

In my classes,  I offer fun and creative sequences, with modifications for every level (I encourage the use of props to make the poses accessible and save for every body). I give a lot of alignment cues and I give special attention to transitions between poses. I work with strength and balance, but I always add a yin and restorative component, so you get a well rounded class. 

Classes can be customised to your needs and goals. 

I speak Spanish, French and English (classes available in all 3 languages).
