“I'd recommend this course to anyone.” 

“I loved the Yin TT with Karina. 

I’d recommend this course to anyone.


Karina is incredibly organised and clear, she’s a great teacher. 

Since completing the training my own practise has deepened. 

I am returning to yoga teaching after a 20 year break (because I love Yin so much ) I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find the words, because there is no script in Yin, but it’s much easier than I thought. 

I’m really grateful for this training. It was accessible and affordable and impeccable.”

  • Is Acupuncture Painful?
    The needles we use for acupuncture are incredibly thin and smooth, and should not be painful. The sensations felt during acupuncture will vary from person to person and are sometimes described as "spreading", "dull ache", or even a low grade "buzzing" sensation.
  • What is Cupping and Moxibustion?
    Cupping is a method of applying glass cups to the surface of the body to create a vacuum in order to stimulate the circulation of blood and fluid through that tissue. This can be a great method of helping to clear toxins, and shift old chronic pain. ​ Moxibustion is a method of applying herbal heat to the body, either indirecly just above the skin, or through the acupuncture needle. This is a great method of warming the body, and helping to stimulate the circulation of blood. ​
  • How many treatments will I need?
    Depending on the nature of what is being treated, and the history of that health condition, a minimum of four treatments will usually be recommended followed by a review.
  • Can I claim Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine on my private health insurance?
    Traditional Chinese Medicine is covered by most private health funds but your coverage will depend on your insurance policy.
  • Are Chinese Medicine treatments covered by Medicare?
    Unfortunately in Australia, Chinese Medicine treatments are not covered by Medicare.

"Quite simply,
I loved Karina’s course. 

The online content was of a very high quality and then the face to face components – which included a yin practice which was then dissected; anatomy and teaching skills were very practical. 


If you are new to yin yoga or yin yoga teaching I would highly recommend the course.  Karina is an excellent communicator and knows her stuff!"
