About the Host
Karin has been teaching yoga and meditation since 2008 and has been practicing meditation and mindfulness for over 22 years now. She first tried meditation when she was 15 and decided it was too difficult to “empty her mind”. Unfortunately, she didn’t have anyone to tell her this was completely normal back then!
Karin studies Tibetan Buddhist and Zen meditation with several Buddhist teachers and communities. Her studies have taken her as far as the small Himalayan Kingdom of
Bhutan, and in 2010, she completed a Masters of Science degree from Aberdeen University in Mindfulness Studies. Karin also obtained a mindfulness teaching qualification with the Mindfulness Association via Aberdeen University and soon after, co-founded the Kent Mindfulness Centre.
As well as teaching mindfulness courses in several countries (including Buddhist Bhutan) she has been participating in embodiment training, which has helped deepen her practice and broaden her understanding of meditation significantly. This has served to bridge the gap between the meditation cushion and daily life.
Karin’s mission is to make meditation accessible to a wide range of people, and relevant to modern life.
