Karen McQuire

Yoga Hero Graduate – Yoga Instructor

Yoga Qualifications:

200 hr Vinyasa Flow

My background:

I have had a lifelong passion for all things fitness, with activities ranging from track and field competitive events, 25 years of practice on Pilates Reformer and mat work, and 10 years practising Yoga.

I also have another passion, Salsa Dancing, and have organised many events in Yorkshire and love dance with a Latin flavour.
I recently worked with a women’s wellness & mental health group in Wakefield, supporting women who run support groups for women within the Wakefield district mental health departments.

I am very health conscious and believe in good nutrition, I try to eat organically and love to shop locally where possible. I keep busy and am also a distributor of the fitness wear brand 2SkinUk, and regularly visit fitness events, yoga studios and gyms locally, also always looking for brand Ambassadors.

My yoga:

I qualified as a Yoga Teacher in November 2021 with my 200hr Vinyasa Flow YTT, with Yoga Hero Leeds and can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life, I feel you are never too old in life to follow your passions and dreams, just go for it, I went on to do a Chair Yoga Workshop which I also loved.

The tutors at Yoga Hero will inspire you and give you the hunger to learn more, it really is a wonderful experience.

I very much enjoyed learning about Yoga philosophy, which gives you a deeper appreciation of the way the mind works and give you an insight into Indian Spirituality, its fascinating and did I mention I am an avid bookworm.

At the start of all my own classes I prepare with a  mixture of breath-work and exercises to help free up the busy mind. I add lots of strength and conditioning elements to my classes with a few choice Pilates elements creeping in, I feel strength in the central core is essential for Yoga and Pilates to maintain good alignment and posture.

I love to inspire my students, I love watching them grow stronger in mind and body. My Goal, for all classes, is to have the student leave feeling empowered and mentally much calmer even after their very first class.
