Karen Mulholland – Registered Senior Teacher, Senior YTT Lecturer & 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.”
