Karen Shapland

Karen has been practising yoga since 2000 and qualified to teach with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2008.  Karen’s personal yoga practice is primarily Ashtanga, balanced by a Yin yoga practice; and she teaches Inner Sun Yoga (hatha flow yoga), Yin yoga and therapeutic yoga.  As well as teaching yoga, Karen is a registered nurse working in acute cardiac care.  Karen’s interest in both physical and mental health has led her to qualify in teaching ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’; and to teach therapeutic yoga to groups with particular health interests.  Karen is currently training to teach meditation and will be starting to teach sacred meditation later this year.

Karen has attended workshops and trained with many inspirational yoga teachers.  Recently Karen has been exploring Yin Yoga more intensively with a teaching immersion led by Travis Eliot, and will be teaching a regular Yin yoga class at The River Room.
