I’m Karen Podesta – yoga teacher, meditation and EFT practitioner and founder of More Love Yoga.
My true yoga journey began in 2013. I’d been running my events business for three and a half years and was hustling hard. I was having the time of my life, we were winning awards and our events were well loved, but the pressure was on and there was THAT voice inside my head, constantly asking when the next job was coming in, would it bring in enough money and was I doing enough to make it work? Add to the mix years of long days, late nights, networking, prosecco and canapés and it was clear I was doing my mind, body and spirit no favours.
After spending the Christmas holidays soul-searching, I decided to kick-start a healthy new year with a 30 day hot yoga pass. By the end of my first week I was glowing, sleeping like never before, bursting with energy and THAT voice had started to disappear. I was already in love.
As these things do, meditation, a passionate curiosity for all things spiritual and a sparkly outlook on the world followed. Soon, my vibe started to attract my tribe and I was surrounded by fellow soul-students and extolling the virtues of yoga to anyone who’d listen.
Then, as these things do, Gabby Bernstein‘s May Cause Miracles found it’s way to me and I knew I had found my calling to lead a heart-centred life, serving others by helping them block our their own inner voices and find their own inner sparkle.
Gabby led me to A Course in Miracles and a particular passage resonated with me: “Teach only love, for that is what you are…This is how you will learn the truth that will set you free, and will keep you free as others learn it of you. Everything you teach you are learning. Teach only love, and learn that love is yours and you are love.”
I co-founded the Make Space community, working with inspirational guest speakers and leading workshops and retreats and in 2016 graduated as a yoga teacher (200hr Yoga Alliance) and founded More Love Yoga.
I’m looking forward to helping you experience More Love in your life whether through a group or private yoga class or working with you in meditation or EFT sessions. Visit Classes & Workshops to find out more.
