Hello, my name is Karlie and I am the owner and principal teacher at Yoga PopUp UK. I’m a mum of two, pug owner and wife!

My journey with Yoga began over 20 years ago, when I worked as a fitness instructor in London. I used to have mixed feelings about yoga. It was my go-to class for relaxing more than fitness. I took regular yoga classes but I didn’t really think about it after I had finished a class. Then 4 years ago I went to a class that revolutionised my thinking. I began to feel super energised after yoga, and i liked it! Yoga was the answer to my migraines, anxiety, stress management and thyroid condition. Yoga became magical!

Naturally my love for yoga grew and evolved into a daily practise and way of life. I worked as a health and beauty writer and digital journalist, and practised asana when I could. Everywhere I went, I tried to instil a little yoga into my day.

In 2018 I trained as a 200 hours Yoga Alliance registered Yoga Teacher with Meadowlark Yoga in Edinburgh. Now I’m so excited to being Yoga to new people, in new places. Yoga is an inclusive environment, let’s make sure we enjoy every moment of it!

I’m excited to join you on your journey with Yoga, as we meet at Yoga PopUp classes classes. I hope you find a new way to feel, not just in your body but in your mind too. It’s very important to take time for yourself, to slow down, to breathe, and I think yoga is the perfect antidote to modern living.

As we enter 2019, I hope we learn lots as part of a yoga community in Edinburgh.
