Karelin found yoga in an attempt to bring movement back into her life. Trained in classical ballet, her body needed healing. Finding a connection with breath, movement and Spirit, Karelin immediately knew she had come home. This was a practice she could do for the rest of her life. Trained at the Hawaii Yoga Institute, yoga brought together all the loves of her life; movement, teaching, community, Christian meditation, and worship. Yoga has become a spiritual discipline. Karelin's classes blend together her diverse yoga lineage of B.K.S. Iyengar, Bryan Kest, and Kripalu Yoga, and her ministry background as a worship leader, retreat speaker, and spiritual mentor. Karelin is a worshiper of Jesus at the core. Experience the unique combination of a healing and strengthening asana practice with a grounding and inspiring, Christ-centered spiritual practice.
