This summer I started yoga with Karin. I did some lessons before in the Netherlands but I must say that I never experienced such good yoga lessons before. Karin is a expert to bring the right vibe during the lessons. The lessons are pretty intensive because beside the stretch exercises you do a lot of exercises like push ups. You feel after every session stronger and stretched. It helped me a lot for my kitesurfing. And she helps you really good with completing the exercises. Also if you struggle or have a injury she is there!
Thank you again for being such a special part of my visits to Maui! Coming to your classes is truly such a meaningful part of my trip that I look so forward too. You have really inspired me in my personal practice, as well as my teaching. You have offered me so many valuable lessons that help me to become a better teacher and student each time- so thank you thank you! I appreciate you and your wonderful energy! Kim Bell

Going to Karin's class is such a gift. You know you are going to work hard on yourself in everyway! The mind-body connection is always well established! I have so much confidence in her teaching and knowledge, that I simply close my eyes, open my heart and enjoy the ride!

It's your passion I can feel when I step into your class. Thank you for sharing your lovely spirit, knowledge and love for a deeper understanding of yoga. I love the focus and the mindfulness. Your teaching is truly inspirational - it made me a better person and athlete. I can't wait to be back in your class!

I like Karin’s classes because of her good vibes and permanent will to help her students. I never had another teacher before her but I think I made the right choice!

Karin lives the beautiful yoga she teaches. Absolutely everything about her - from warm hugs for her students to how fiercely she loves her family and friends, from her halcyon presence to her passion for knowledge of the body, from her velvety rich voice to her own high standards and ever-evolving practice - makes her the perfect medium for the healing teachings of yoga. Karin is real, she is kind and she cares so much for her students. It's a privilege to have her in my life.

Clear! Knowledgeable! Precise but Forgiving! She has all what teachers need to have. I started my Yoga practice in my late 40’s but many times I was reluctant to practice until I met Karin! She finally made me understand the right meaning of Yoga. I have been always trying to improve my body but keep failing. Now, I do Yoga everyday! Yes. It transformed my body but that was just a small part. It is transforming my life in every dimension. I recommend her from the bottom of my heart.
Karin ‘s understanding of the foundation of yoga, the yoga sutras, sanskrit, pranayama and asana, inform her classes, allowing for depth, precision, and openhearted practice. Morning classes are the highlight of my week.

If you are looking for a very safe, precise, educated and positive teacher, giving you well built sequences, safe and clear verbal instructions, constant, but gentle and valuable pointers throughout class, look no further! Karin is a sunshine and rare gem in the ever growing yoga world of fast track wanna be teachers.
I am deeply grateful to be a student of Karin. The physical practice has given me more strength than I ever knew I could develop. Her instruction teaches me proper aliment that allows me to go deeper into each asana and lets me feel so great in my body and about my body. Most importantly, I feel physically healed each and everyday by this practice. The discipline and attention to detail that I crave is always there to keep me present. Karin’s teaching has given me the to ability to find mental freedom and ease off the mat. I am inspired by Karin’s teaching to stay the course, and to keep showing up and giving my best. Witnessing her investment in me as a student shows me that I am infinitely held and cared for. Every day after I practice with Karin, my heart is filled with happiness and gratitude. I have been blessed with a true gift to be able to practice with Karin daily.
Karin always brings a fresh perspective, newness, passion and inspiration to her yoga classes and Yoga Teacher Trainings. On a personal level she is an incredibly warm, loving and caring individual who loves connecting with her students on and off the mat. We often go out for coffee after class. A class with Karin is not just a yoga class – but an “event”. She welcomes all of her student’s into her ohana (family) with open arms. I feel very blessed to know Karin. I would recommend her classes/privates/teacher trainings to everyone!

I absolutely love Karin Kuhn. She is a fabulous instructor with her own unique style, therapeutic approach, and is extremely detail oriented! What I love most about her teaching style is that she will check in with you during the practice to make sure you are addressing issue areas and holding the posture correctly. I appreciate that she takes her classes in a direction that reflects the needs and wants of the participants. Karin helped me learn how to manage my body, and taught me how to keep myself grounded/aware during stressful weeks, and in every moment of every day. There is a magic to practicing in her class. Know that you will be guided in ways that may challenge your body, but do not hurt it. You will feel healthy and peaceful just by walking into one of her classes.
After 16 years practicing yoga in various locales; mainly Maui and California, I have come to a deep and abundant love for one special senseii/teacher – Karin Kuhn. She embodies the wisdom, light, and love of the yoga practice in all it’s forms; while staying essentially grounded as a warm, funny, and incredibly approachable human being! She takes the serious practice of the physical and combines it with a studied, but graceful & concise program of fluid and aligned movement, incorporated with the ever constant encouragement for the prana flow of breath. Her informative and frequent textbook referrals to the bodies’ specific muscles/bones/ligaments, etc. go a step beyond most teachings; and I am awed and amazed at her intrinsic knowledge of the human anatomy. With a deep and genuine spiritual awareness, and her compassion & empathy for all living beings, Karin is the guidance I strive to live up to, and look forward to coming back to; even when my life’s journey takes me away from her everyday teachings! To paraphrase; Karin gives me the incentive & encouragement to become a more accomplished ‘yogi’ and a kinder & more fulfilled human being.
I have been with Karin for many years and besides being the most knowledgable teacher about anatomy and the human body in general, what strikes me the most is her personality and how she makes everybody feel so welcome to her class. She will always help you with any issue of pain that you have and give you exercises to do at home. I love that she wants to spend time with her students and go for coffee afterwards with you.
“Inspired”, is the first word that comes to mind as a student of Karin’s for over 3 years now. Her practice and teachings she shares are uplifting and also grounded in the practicality of living yoga day by day. She has taught me not only how to trust myself and my strength, but also to take leaps of faith and trust the faith zone…on the mat and in the world. Everyday I am grateful for my friend, my teacher, my sister!
Karin mastery of the art and science of yoga, and her deep passion for yoga comes through in each and every class she teaches. I am so deeply grateful to have found a teacher who is so dedicated and devoted to her students, and to the practice of yoga in its fullest expression. I truly am not sure I knew how to do ANY yoga poses properly before I found Karin. After only a few months of dedicated practice with Karin, I am free from shoulder pain and feel free of fear and confident in my ability to go deeper into my practice than I ever thought possible. Her continual reminders to her students about personal responsibility inspires me to always show up and be my best self. Her graceful ability to weave the profound teachings of yoga seamlessly into her classes always leaves me feeling humbled, inspired, and more full of love and joy each day. I am truly grateful for her dedication to her students and for being able to study with a master of yoga.
There is so much need today for grounding! Yoga can be the medicine our mind, body and spirit are looking for but it takes a great teacher like Karin Kuhn to hold space for students to attune. Karin is a blessing to yoga students as her classes are meticulously sequenced and paced, her language is clean and precise, she takes the time to align students carefully before transitioning in and out of poses and she incorporates spirituality in just the right dose for everybody! She also leads by example both on and off the mat which is very important on the yoga path. Her classes are both traditional and innovative and her sense of humor and light are uplifting. But my favorite thing about her classes is that they are challenging as she is not afraid to invite students to work deeply.
I am very grateful and fortunate to be able to practice yoga with Karin Kuhn (for three years now). Karin is a brilliantly skilled, enthusiastic and patient yoga instructor. I have always been impressed by her deep and vast knowledge of yoga. She personally and expertly shares her knowledge of anatomy, philosophy and spiritualism to all of her students. She enthusiastically guides her students in every practice with a passion that is infectious. Yoga is a gift to myself. Karin is a gift to yoga and to those of us who know and practice with her.
