What my students say...

The honest truth

  • Karen is an amazing yoga teacher. I have had many 1:1s with her and she has helped me improve my yoga practice, and strength and flexibility incredibly. She is very good at picking up on some of the bad habits I have obtained previously and suggesting adaptations to poses when I can't get into them (just yet!). I regularly run marathons and ultra marathons, so Karen has customised her sessions to work with what runners need and around any injuries. Karen is kind and patient, and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to improve in yoga specifically, or just become stronger and more flexible.

    I met Karen in Tenerife and our daily yoga sessions together were the best part of my stay! I’d been practicing yoga before, but my month with Karen strengthened my practice both mentally and physically. Karen is great at adapting the level to her students, giving the newbies support and the more advanced yogis some challenge - all in the same class! She is a good guide for connecting the physical to the emotional and the spiritual. I also loved her readings at the end of class. Altogether an inspiring person that I recommend taking one or many classes with!

  • My first yoga experience! Karen is an amazing instructor and super friendly person. I was worried about making mistakes and not being able to follow the others but Karen helps everyone finding their own flow. Her yoga classes are simply the best way to start the day!

    I met Karen when she was teaching yoga in Tenerife and went to her class every morning on my vacation. She's an amazing instructor and was extremely helpful - she helped me adapt poses to my body and level of flexibility and strengths. The head massage at the end of class is an extra bonus! Highly recommend!!

  • The Floating Yogi really changed my perspective on yoga. I am a HIIT and burpee kinda gal, but my month long stay in Tenerife was filled with sessions from The Floating Yogi and I came to really enjoy the way that my body felt. She is patient and really great at teaching everyone in the class from beginners to advanced making sure that everyone feels challenged. I left Spain two months ago and still incorporate yoga into my daily work out routines, thanks to The Floating Yogi Namaste.

    I was really nervous to try yoga in a group setting so Karen gave me an amazing one on one class! She was really friendly and I felt like I could just chat to her about what I found difficult. She gave me lots of postures to help with my back problems and showed me easier options for the postures I find hard in a class. I feel confident enough to try a group class now and would love more lessons from Karen in the future! Would definitely reccomend her to anyone wanting practice yoga.
