KL’s Yoga Teaching
Kara-Leah lives her yoga in every way, every day. She first stepped on a mat in 1996, regularly began practicing asana and meditation in the late 1990s and first taught in 2006. Her practice has healed chronic back pain and helped her recover from psychosis. In 2010 Kara-Leah trained with Shiva Rea, receiving her 200HR certificate. Her daily practice is the foundation of all she shares, and focuses on pranayama, meditation, chanting, visualisation and asana. KL is currently on a 1000 day practice, determined to see what it takes to show up to the same practice every single day, no matter what. Click here to find out more about KL's Teaching.
