If you’re a busy mum, carer, or professional wanting to bounce out of bed in the morning feeling refreshed, pain-free and excited for tomorrow, then you already know you need to add look after your own wellbeing to your ‘to-do’ list.
So I’ll spare you the lecture.
No need to be a broken record and convince you of something your Dr, Chiro, Physio, Best Friend and Therapist has been telling you for years.
After all, you probably already KNOW that creating time for yourself and your health is the key tipping point to staying on top of day-to-day pressures that include looking out for others as well as yourself.
You’ve probably also heard about the impact a regular yoga practice has on preventing and managing specific health challenges. For those of us over 40, this includes cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cancer, anxiety and depression (Source)
Even if you’re fairly happy with how life is right now, chances are there’s a little voice inside asking: ‘is this as good as it gets?’
When you build immunity, increase your vitality, lower your stress levels and clear your mind through prioritising your health, you can:
Sustainable, long-lasting health comes with small, consistent actions that, in reality, don’t take up much time at all.
In the same amount of time it takes you to scroll through Facebook; you can start to take baby steps towards changing your habits. And that’ll lead to less tiredness, much less sickness (who’s got time to be sick anyway?) and more time to enjoy life.
True health meets you where you’re at in life and frees you up to squeeze maximum value out of every precious minute.
WAKE UP FEELING ENERGISED, AND FREE OF EXHAUSTION AND ACHES AND PAINS
Creating more vitality and reducing stress puts you in complete control of your energy supply. Tiredness is often the first sign that all is not well.
Know that it is possible to regain control of your energy levels, sleep soundly and bounce out of bed in the morning before your alarm.
It is possible to do everything you want and move your body every way you want to (without paying for it the next day).
FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LIVING TRUE TO YOUR POTENTIAL
Nobody wants to become that bitter old lady with regrets, whose conversation is limited to her health problems and complaints about the weather.
When you’re living the life you know you were put on this planet to do – both at work and with your family - there’s a spring in your step, a clarity of mind and a light in your eyes that no-one can miss.
ENJOY MORE LOVING AND CONNECTED RELATIONSHIPS
Feeling connected with your partner can lead to banter, eye contact and affection (not just an exchange of schedules and delegating tasks) without your ‘to-do’ list loitering in the background, stealing you from the moment.
Stop resenting your kids’ attention and start enjoying their playfulness.
LIVE LONGER AND GET TO SEE YOUR KIDS GROW UP
Ask any active person if they exercise regularly to live longer and it’s unlikely that’s their main motivation.
Yet the science is in: being physically active increases life expectancy and reduces mortality rates by about 35% (Source).
You probably already know that bittersweet feeling of watching over your sweet, sleeping child and instantly going from feeling intoxicating love to the most dreaded, breath-catching fear that something might happen to them.
Or even worse, something could happen to you and they’re left without a mother.
While no-one has a crystal ball, what you do have is the choice right now to increase or decrease your chances of living as long as possible and being able to usher your kids into adulthood.
Perhaps in your most courageous moments you’ve committed to start.
You’ve cleaned out the fridge, set your alarm for morning walks, tried acupuncture, or simply decided you’re sick of being sick. You’ve had enough of the daily, niggling aches and pains; you’re tired of replying ‘not bad’ or 'fine' when asked how you’re feeling (when you really want to answer ‘I need a vacation from my life’); and you’re willing to do what it takes to feel better.
If you’re super committed, maybe you even invested in weekly Pilates classes, monthly naturopath sessions, or booked in a block of therapy.
But even with the best intentions, most would-be attempts at better health end up abandoned. The motivation for morning walks drops-off (again) and you return to chasing the clock, comfort eating, snapping at the kids, feeling exhausted before you even get out of bed in the morning and catching every bug going around.
Here’s why most attempts to create better health end up abandoned:
Without a super clear, step-by-step action plan with intentional, results-driven exercise sequences, simple food guidance and tools that give concrete emotional support, most would-be health creators get completely lost.
They fall victim to analysis paralysis.
There’s simply too much choice, not enough time and burnout from an already intense mental load, to-do list and overwhelming sense of being pulled in all directions by all people.
With no time or energy left in the tank for themselves, they fall off the wagon before they even start.
Here’s why this is irreversibly crippling.
As an already busy partner, parent, carer, employee or entrepreneur being pulled in all directions (sometimes all five at once!), you literally can’t afford to fall sick regularly, be bogged down by aches and pains, or have relationship issues because you’re simply ‘too tired’ to be nice to your partner.
You need to be as productive as possible in the shortest time available.
Especially in these uncertain times.
If you’ve been feeling deep down that the way you’re living isn’t sustainable and will only get worse over time, you need a quick fix that won’t just improve the way your body works, it’ll improve the way your life works.
Therefore, creating lasting health and sustainable energy levels (while actively reducing overwhelm and burnout) is one of the few things in your life that you NEED to make time for.
And luckily for you, there’s a proven system that can get you there in the shortest time possible.
Even if you’re late to the party, there’s still a golden opportunity for you to jump in, clean up your health (and look and feel better than you’ve ever felt in your life).
That is…if you can avoid the same deadly health-creating mistakes most people are making.
Even though health and wellbeing is a MASSIVE and fast growing industry- it’s not a very successful one.
A few people will experience HUGE benefits and LASTING health, while many others fizzle out.
And the main reason for this, as you’ve likely seen by now, is that while the barriers to entry are relatively LOW…
…the barriers towards EFFECTIVE, SUSTAINABLE RESULTS are fairly high.
But as long as you can avoid the biggest blunders that sink most would- be health attempts, the path is paved for you. You can return to being the healthy, happy, vibrant person you used to be.
One that allows you to save time, stay motivated, improve your relationships, feel better, look better and live better.
The key ingredient to all of this is a proven system supporting you to IMPROVE your health, INCREASE your energy levels, CLEAR your mind, REDUCE your overwhelm and make space for YOU.
And with your permission, that’s what I’d LOVE to show you how to create.
Whatever did I do before I found you and your wonderful Japanese Yoga (combined with essential oils) class?
For a start caught every slight bug that went around!
Well, not any more. Not one sniffle since I found you last January!
Not even a broken bone can keep me away, I leave feeling THAT good.
Me, the large girl who hated exercise, hates to miss even one class.
There is something in your voice and attitude to every one of us, big, small, fit, unfit, young, old, newbie or long time attendee that just keeps us coming back.
I’m not sure what made me come to my first class but, you had me from the first class.
Maybe it was just luck that I saw your post on Facebook, maybe it was the universe pointing me in the direction I needed to go,
I’m not sure which, I’m just glad I saw it.

With a skepticism of all things 'alternative', it was with some trepidation I went for a trial Japanese yoga session with Karenna.
Maybe it’s my life stage, maybe it's job stress, maybe it's because the sessions are run for men, maybe it's Karenna's ability to design a session that work for all abilities, but whatever it is, it definitely works for me. To dedicate an hour a week to something that improves my flexibility and strength is something I wish I'd started 10 years ago, but using the hour to clear my mind has been the biggest benefit for me.
I've barely missed a session since the trial and I haven't needed to see my chiro in months - I'm a convert!

No filler. No unnecessary modules. No empty promises that look sexy on the surface, but do nothing but overwhelm you and sabotage your progress. I understand you’re not 20 anymore and you can rest assured the program is paced to suit those who’ve done a bit of living!(while still challenging you to bring forward your best)
I have been practising Japanese yoga for several years now and have been amazed and grateful for the positive impact it has had in my life. For many years I suffered from frequent migraines. I tried everything, to no avail - until starting Japanese yoga with Karenna 4 years ago. Attending 2 classes a week was a complete game-changer for me; the migraines became rare; my head a lot clearer; my energy boosted; my posture and neck tension improved; and my entire body, especially my core has become a lot stronger and more stable.
Karenna is one of the best teachers I have come across. She explains things clearly, (not just the postures, but the effect they have on the body and it’s various systems) - and does so in a way that is very calming and reassuring. I highly recommend her classes - they will change your life.

I was introduced to Karenna and her Japanese Yoga class by a friend as I’ve had neck and shoulder issues for a long time following some biking injuries. After the first few classes I was impressed by the improvement I felt in reduced tension around my neck area. I had tried many other forms of treatment and Karenna’s Japanese Yoga seemed to be more effective with less time required. I continued the sessions and my shoulder issues also improved along with further reductions to my neck tension and associated discomfort. The other benefit I noticed was my lower back seemed to get stronger and sitting for long periods didn’t result in pain. I continue to attend Karenna’s classes and have reduced or stopped other treatments. Karenna takes a genuine interest in helping individuals and I would highly recommend people trying Japanese Yoga to see if it helps them.

Since Japanese Yoga for U is an implementation program designed to get specific results, you WILL be jumping in with both feet. Not only do I make it simple, but I take nothing for granted and really go step-by-step to make sure you’re supported at every turn. You will experience the safest, most effective Japanese yoga practice that gets tangible results.
Karenna, your Japanese yoga class has been life changing for me. This yoga “style” is so wonderful, so powerful, so healing for people who experience shoulder and neck issues, like I used to.
I thought yoga was “not for me” after going to traditional group yoga or Pilates classes that damaged me even more. Japanese yoga “appeared” at that moment, when I was about to give up on yoga.
Now my head tension and back/neck shoulder tightness and pains are history. I see my chiropractor once a month (instead of weekly) for a quick realignment, and that’s it.
I always look forward to my Japanese Yoga class on Mondays and Fridays, a great way to start and end the week.
I really love the setting on your beautiful terrace, feeling close to nature, the essential oils you offer us at the beginning and end of each class, the personal attention you give to each of your student, the way you always find an alternative exercise to address anyone’s physical momentary difficulty or need.
You are a wonderful teacher and a generous, positive person.
You even made it possible for me to do the “arch”, a dream I had… and thought my back and neck would never allow me to do.
It only took you a few months to bring me there with your big reassuring smile, step by step guidance, and confidence in what I was able to do!!!
I really appreciate all the class preparation and consistency in your teaching. I learnt a lot about meridians & seasonal changes, how our body gets affected, how to protect ourselves from viruses by doing the right exercises.
I could go on forever with all the benefits of your Japanese Yoga classes.
Thank you Karenna, for everything you do.

Karenna has a knack for communication as well as a deep understanding of the yoga movements and how they relate to the overall functioning of the body. I love her clear explanations. Yoga has traditionally been challenging for me, with rheumatoid arthritis, however Karenna has taken the time and care to work out how to adapt movements to accommodate my joints wherever possible. She makes Japanese yoga possible - even for me!

I just want to Thank You again for creating your online course...
I’ve just done Module 3 again - for second time... I’ve only done this as I’ve still haven’t shaken my cold/sinus issues... & I only did half an hour but had to stop as my large intestine obviously became unblocked( sorry if this is too much sharing ) but felt like I was going to vomit and then needed to eliminate in the toilet!
I feel so much clearer now though! Wow!
I have been really not taking care of what I eat as I’ve been going through a lot of emotional turmoil ... but now after looking at your notes for food support and essential oils ( I didn’t look at this last week) I realise it’s totally to do with my diet why I’m not feeling better after all this emotional purging!
So Thank you!!!
Even though I knew I needed to clean up my diet again - it’s always good to get confirmation & a nudge from an “expert”

Karenna has such an amazing calmness and grace in her manner and style, it is so easy to relax and focus. Even when she is correcting a pose, she does it in such a way that you never feel spoken down to or silly. I also love that Karenna explains the purpose of each pose and what is the most important aspect of it, so that even if a pose is too hard (due to my inexperience), I know what movements to concentrate on. I find that after the class I always feel full of vitality, no matter how tired I was beforehand. My body always feels a little longer and definitely more relaxed. I also tend to desire healthier food options that day, more than usual. 🙂
I have had several muscle tears during my last couple of summer sports seasons and been quite concerned about building strength and integrity in those muscles again. I started Karenna’s yoga during my last summer season and didn’t have even the slightest twinge in those muscles. Super excited, feeling much more confident in muscle integrity.
I would recommend this yoga to anyone who would like to improve overall health and strength. I think Karenna has a wonderful ability to teach others and share this beautiful form of yoga.

I started Japanese Yoga with Karenna with a history of intermittent back issues. After completing the first term’s program I have not had any issues with my back and also find myself more mindful of posture when I am in situations that require lifting.
I've done more traditional Yoga in the past and found it all a bit 'zen' and less practical. Karenna is both easy to follow and a great teacher providing a warm atmosphere to relax into.

Hi there, I wanted to let you know that I have managed to wean off the Valium completely and am also going to bed without any medication (apart from my normal anti-depressant) The oils have changed my life - thank you so much. I have ordered the Vetiver and Sandalwood and they are coming tomorrow. I am probably abusing the PastTense roll-on a bit but it’s so much better than popping a Valium. I ordered another roll-on and more Lavender as well. I just wanted to say thank you as I don't think I could have done it without them and without your guidance. I’m still on my journey but you have a convert in me.
