Karuna Di Libero
Yoga found Karuna right when she needed it as a tool to alleviate the severe depression she suffered as a child and into adulthood. The practice offered her the tools to find happiness deep within and to transform her life. She committed to sharing this incredible practice with the world around her.
She has been formally trained in Ashtanga + Anusara Yoga, by such humble, knowledgeable, dedicated teachers, and has been passionately teaching + developing Yoga mastery for over 2 decades.
In 2010, she completed the Prison Yoga Project Teacher Training with James Fox and also is one of the first 6 Yoga Instructors to train with Connected Warriors to start a Yoga program for combat war veterans in Rhode Island.
She lived in Mysore, India studying pranayama, meditation, Sanskrit, Vedic chanting + Advaita Vedanta. She studied under the guidance of Guruji, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and the Jois family which deepened her understanding + practice of Ashtanga Yogasana.
Karuna has travelled the world, feeding her passion for exploration + adventure, seeking wisdom, deepening her personal sadhana (practice) + finding fulfilment in ritual, teaching international retreats, sharing the practice of Yoga, + it’s sister science of health and well being through Ayurveda.
She enjoys leading retreats in sacred places around the world since 2006, where she believes it is so very important to connect with our environment and our inner selves. She lives a nomadic life between Mexico, Europe + in a mobile home when living in States. She has been spending the last winter in Mexico where she opened PranaVeda, her pop- up, mobile Ayurvedic Spa in Tulum.
“One of my most memorable life experiences was living in an ashram on the Ganges River in India. It changed my life on a profound level because I then realized how everything I did had a subtle effect on me. This revelation changed the way I viewed the world, what I ate, and how I live. It planted seeds within me that are watered and nurtured daily through my own practice.”
