Karen Mulholland – 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 (2) 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 now works with the teacher trainees at the Moksha Academy of Yoga (RYS200).  This includes providing lectures on topics such as pranayama, mudras and Pre Natal Yoga as well as mentoring the YTT’s as they start to teach their first public classes.

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 member of Yoga Australia.

Inspiration

I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each, it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes, in some area, an athlete of God. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.
