Ahimsa, the science of non violence
Practicing the art of peace love and kindness
Cultivated state where love shines the brightest
Resolving conflict with the ancient yogic science
Ahimsa Living is what I do all day, every day. Speaking from a place of realness and authenticity I travel all over the world sharing my AHIMSA LIVING and animal rights activism experience and stories using the means of yoga and yoga philosophy as my platform. YOGA IS ACTIVISM! SKILL IN ACTION!
I am a 800 hr Yoga Teacher, Jivamukti Yoga and Yogasana (ELSY) i practice and study in London with my main teacher Stewart Gilchrist from EAST LONDON SCHOOL OF YOGA whenever i can.
I have expanded my yoga view over the years and I love learning with other teachers like Cat Alip Douglas from Sangye Yoga in London, my man Mick Barnes from the Yoga Factory in Sydney (where it all began) and my Iyengar teacher Rembert Petrus from OLD SCHOOL YOGA in Amsterdam.
My yoga classes are dynamic, strong, energetic with teachings drawn from my own life experience and work as an animal rights activist.
I currently teach at YAGOY in Amsterdam Friday 12 pm (de Pijp) and Tuesday 730 pm (West) and subbing lots of classes, join me for a class!
My dream and goal for the future is to develop my very own Teacher Training program, stepping into the footsteps of incredible teachers who have gone before me.
With ultimate gratitude to my teachers, the lineage before me, i would not be where i am today without you! JAI!
ALL GLORY to Sharon Gannon and David Life co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga, I hold you and the teachings preciously close to my heart.
Stewart Gilchrist, you changed my life so much, i don't even know where to begin, thank you for who you are and all you do for this world, how you always keep me on my toes and are my biggest inspiration! I love you!
Mick Barnes, you are my one and only teacher, I adore you, without you and you ever ongoing knowledge and encouragement I would not be the dedicated teacher and student I am today. I heart you! The Yoga Factory is where my crazy career of yoga, travel and finding my destiny begun.

Still sore from Yoga on Sunday! Jivamukti and the amazing Karo Tak has certainly change my view of yoga!
Clare Donovan, Sydney
Feeling energised, relaxed, happy and inspired after Karo Tak beautiful, challenging and always unique yoga class and satsang. So lucky to have peeps like Karo in this world.
Its amazing to meet a person who embraces what she does in a way like Karo does. To me she is an embodiment of Jivamukti Yoga, she embodies every part of the philosophy. She practices whatever she shares with her students: let it be Yoga, let it be food, veganism, let it be lifestyle or animal rights activism. Meeting Karo, spending time with her left me changed, enriched, inspired and blessed. Thank you so much!
What stands out about Karo is her passion for what she does and how she shares it with her students. She takes your normal strong or power vinyasa class and makes it really mean something. Not just on a physical "yoga" level but meaningful in regards to how you live your life, how you see, react to and effect the world around you. It's really inspiring in so many ways. She has changed the way I practice and teach, and definitely for the better.
As a teacher Karo is wonderful, she knows what she's doing and has very dynamic classes, with amazing playlists. But what I like the most about the classes is how personal they are, every class is a special class and every student is a special student, and it gives me kind of home and cosy feelling. Also, the talks in the classes are super interesting and Karo has the gift of being able to express herself and her ideas in a very strong but kind way.
What is special about Karo's classes is her passion (for the method and her students), her personal care (she is giving me the best assists) and the always strong message she is bringing across in class every single time, may it be about veganism, mindfulness or self-empowerment. I learn every class a bit more, my body is learning every class a bit more. With Karo I have pushed (through) many limits of my body and mind. It i truly inspiring!
I remember being in your class on your one year anniversary, so special! I also wanted to let you know that after having you as my first Jivamukti teacher and introducing me to this whole world i have been vegan ever since (and FOUR of my best friends have become vegan too in that time!!!) thank you for sharing your magic and your love, it truly makes a difference every day, never forget it.
So grateful and happy that I was able to practice with Karo in Lisbon. I was already experienced in Jivamukti but her yoga classes really brought my practice to the next level. Still thinking of you a lot, Karo, mostly when practicing yoga and seeing how much I developed because of you. Thank you.
