Karli McGuiness is a 4th generation yogi from a line of Hatha, Ashtanga, Kundalini, and Bikram Yoga teachers. She followed in her family’s footsteps in 2010 when she took part in the National Asana Competition and attended Bikram’s Teacher Training. She has been teaching internationally ever since. Although she respects and loves all styles of yoga, Bikram, Vinyasa and Yin yoga have had the most profound positive impacts on her life; making them an offering that she feels privileged to share with her students. Fascinated by the anatomical and biological benefits of yoga, Karli continues to research the latest scientific findings in order to enrich her teaching of the practice.
Karli has done a lot of independent research to discover why yoga is so effective on an anatomical level. Conducting interviews with Barnard and Columbia University neuroscientists and with “Pure Action” based in Texas, has aided in her goal to expand her love for yoga into the scientific realm. You'll see that some of her yoga influences like Vinyasa, Dharma, Ashtanga, and Restorative have a place in these sequences. She strongly believes that there is a big benefit from practicing all styles of yoga, whichever resonates with you!
