Karina Smith



Having a background in dance has always informed my movement practices, and it continues to play a role in the way I like to sequence in yoga. I have also been blessed with an amazing role as an educator at The Australian Yoga Academy; lecturing in a variety of content, mentoring students, and encouraging their teaching skills development. I'm particularly passionate about Yin Yoga as a healing movement practice, and teach yin at a variety of Melbourne based studios. 
Outside of the Yoga world, I have almost completed my B.A of Health Sciences degree; Chinese Medicine major, and will soon be offering acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments alongside the yoga classes and Yin Yoga teacher training.
