Karen Mulholland – L2 Yoga Teacher/Senior YTT Mentor


Karen’s yoga journey started in 2001 when she joined a local yoga class hoping to minimize the regular pain experienced at the end of the working day due to ‘computer back’.   Not long after starting the class, Karen’s back problems were fixed and the yoga journey had begun.

Realising that there was so much more to yoga than asana (posture), Karen completed a two year Yoga Teacher Trainer’s qualification.

Having experienced the benefits of a regular yoga practice, Karen now enjoys sharing her learning and the benefits of yoga with others.  Karen teaches a flowing vinyasa style of yoga including general, gentle and prenatal classes, where students are encouraged to work at a level that is suitable to their needs.

Karen’s personal practice, diagnosis of food intolerances and subsequent dietary changes have led her to a deeper connection with the body and the challenges of staying in the moment.  Listening to the body and accepting what it is telling you is a tough lesson to learn. It teaches us that everyday is different and as a result our practice of yoga should reflect these differences.

With a desire to continue to share the benefits of yoga with others, Karen works with the teacher trainees at the Academy of Moksha Yoga as a Senior Mentor. She is well respected and appreciated by all YTT’s as they receive her support and guidance when they begin to teach yoga to the public as part of their training.

Karen takes her inspiration from the teachers, students and teacher trainees at Moksha Yoga.  ‘It is wonderful to share Yoga with such a wonderful group of people.’

Karen is a Registered Level 2 teacher with Yoga Australia.

What/Who inspires me? 

“I am inspired by the teachers and students at Moksha with their passion for yoga, sharing and community; by those who keep coming back to their mats regardless of what is happening for them and will practice at a pace, level and in a way that creates yoga for them.

I am also inspired by ‘ransom acts of kindness’; when you have the opportunity to do some small act of kindness for a stranger.”

What Moksha means to me? 

“Moksha (meaning liberation) is a space where you can be and let go of the day, the week and then leave having found a level of peace.  It is a place of community with great people who share a similar interest and a space in which you can find inspiration.”

Inspiration

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
