Inspired by anatomy living in movement
Karen Breneman Kirkness
Karen started practising yoga while at the University of Central Florida in the late 90s. Since then, she has studied Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga as well as restorative techniques for a balance of yin and yang. She holds Masters degrees in Fine Art and Human Anatomy from the University of Edinburgh. Karen is the founder of Meadowlark Yoga, based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Karen is fascinated by the gross and subtle design principles that underpin modern postural yoga practice. Using a range of innovative teaching techniques such as model building and body painting, Karen offers unparalleled instruction in her Anatomy for Yoga training courses perfect for anyone interested in the connection between sacred geometry, anatomy, and yoga.
Karen's approach to yoga breaks down advanced postures into their constituent spiral patterns for safe and effective progression. She is known for her creative sequences of challenging asana and breathwork, layering subtle and gross anatomical language. Karen is based in the Scottish Borders and lives with her husband and two young children near Berwick-upon-Tweed. You can study with her in Edinburgh at Meadowlark Yoga, or get in touch to arrange private study with her in her home studio.
