Hi, I'm Kara, a seasoned yoga and meditation teacher with over 10 years experience as a teacher. My journey with these practices began 25 years ago when I took my very first yoga class with an inspirational 75-year-old teacher named Elsie. Since then, I've been deeply committed to sharing the benefits of yoga and meditation, particularly as we age.
I've spent my adult life (except for 3 years living in Europe in my 20's) as a self-employed entrepreneur, creating three successful businesses that all focused on creating peaceful and serene environments for my guests. These beautiful spaces provided a much-needed escape from the busyness of daily life.
After finishing my degree I created my first business at 25 and opened a Day Spa in a Gold Coast hotel, which quickly grew to three Day Spas with a team of beautiful staff. After running this business for 15 years, I sold it and did my Yoga/meditation training. I then renovated an 80-year-old Masonic Hall in the beautiful township of Canungra, transforming it into a stunning 2-storey yoga studio which created a beautiful community of yogis for 10 years.
Over the past decade, my passion has been hosting weekend retreats mainly at Springbrook but also in other locations such as the Sunshine Coast, Byron Bay, India, and in 2024, Bali. I've also created two gorgeous holiday cottages on Tamborine Mountain where guests can find a little slice of paradise amongst the rainforest to find their calm.
As a massive introvert, I understand the importance of finding stillness and solitude in our busy lives. I am deeply dedicated to carving out these spaces for my clients, where they can reconnect with themselves and nature.
That's me in a nutshell! 50 years young - a little excited, a little scared, and immensely curious about what the future holds.
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to meeting you at one of my retreats.
