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 Karo does wholeheartedly. Ahimsa is the practice of non violence. Speaking from a place of realness and authenticity Karo travels the world sharing her AHIMSA LIVING stories and experiences as an animal rights activist but using the means of yoga and yoga philosophy as her platform. She is a Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, she graduated in 2013 in New York, drawn to the method because of the strong ahimsa element and the emphasis on scriptural study, devotion, prayer, music, chanting as well as asana. Having the Jivamukti Yoga method as her foundation she has expanded her view over the years and loves learning with other teachers like Cat Alip Douglas from Sangye Yoga, Steward Gilchrist from East London School of Yoga and her main teacher Mick Barnes from the Yoga Factory in Sydney. Karo's yoga classes are dynamic, strong, energetic with a smashing play-list, teachings drawn from her own life experience and work as an animal rights activist. Her dream is to develop her own Teacher Training program and creating her own yoga method one day.
ALL GLORY to Sharon Gannon and David Life co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga, I hold you and the teachings preciously close to my heart. 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 will always be a place I call home, where my crazy career of yoga, travel and finding my destiny begun. www.theyogafactory.com.au

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.
