In this episode we catch up with Karina Smith. Karina is a teacher of Yoga (especially Yin Yoga), and meditation, and an educator and mentor to Yoga Teacher Trainees at Australian Yoga Academy (including myself).
In this podcast we learn about Karina’s path to yoga, from growing up in country Victoria to escaping to the big city. She discusses how her background in dance has affected her approach to yoga. We talk about the soundscapes she creates for her classes.
Karina has gained a lot of anatomical knowledge over the years, and we talk about how her understanding of the field has changed, especially following her recent studies with Bernie Clark. We also briefly touch on the somewhat esoteric signposts that lead towards her studying and more recently practicing Chinese Medicine.
