Karina Chavez Galnares
Karina is a certified yoga instructor with 700 hours training. She started her regular practice in 2007 and decided to become a full time instructor when she moved to Dubai. She also majored in Organizational Psychology and is a Certified Business and Life Coach. In 2010 she had her first Hatha Yoga training in Mexico and completed her second training (Ashtanga Vinyasa) in Thailand in 2014.
She usually teaches Hatha Flow, Vinyasa and Power yoga, but also likes to spice things up with some challenging asanas. In her personal practice, she begun to combine different styles of yoga and discovered that this was very well received by her students. Karina believes that one of the hardest barriers of the mind is to detach from the routine. Therefore, her conscious intention in her teaching is to create yoga sequences that challenge the students to experience something new and different in every class. Never forgetting about the alignment, coordinating the movements with the breath and awakening the qualities that yoga provides.
Karina feels privileged and proud to being able to contribute in her students’ lives by creating a space and time where they can experience a physical, mental and energetic transformation. She considers her purpose in life to serve with unconditional love. Yoga has become her way to achieve this and to her, it is not only a professional vocation but a personal one, too. 'By sharing my yoga practice consciously and in a loving way, I seek to be a better version of myself.'
