ABOUT KAREN
Karen Kirkness is American by birth and now based in Scotland with her husband, Simon. Having first studied Yoga with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore in 2003, Karen continues taking yearly trips to Mysore to study with his grandson and current KPJAYI Director, Sharath Jois, as a long-term student of Ashtanga yoga. Through the intuitive adaptation of her Yoga practice over the years under the guidance of her teachers, Karen has healed from from a wide variety of injuries. Karen’s art practice and passion for all things anatomical have an enormous impact on her teachings. After moving to Edinburgh from Florida to complete a master’s degree from the edinburgh college of art, Karen pursued an art career before finally settling in Edinburgh with some hard-won perspective.

As a keen cyclist for many years, Karen is no stranger to injuries and chronic tightness. In her 20s and early 30s, Yoga was the panacea for all the ravages of endurance sports and artistic adventuring. Slowly over the years she founded the community comprising Meadowlark Yoga, the Edinburgh yoga studio Karen now calls home. Together with her husband, Karen now lives her passion for creativity through anatomy and yoga. Inspired by forms in nature and the physical artefacts of energy, she has found a lifetime of wonder in the biotensegrity concept brought to life by Stephen M Levin MD.

After 15 years of Yoga practice, Karen spent a year in the dissection lab learning about human anatomy at the University of Edinburgh as part of her second Masters degree. Her fascination with anatomy and subtle body concepts are fuel for a varied artistic practice including drawing and 3D printing anatomical model iterations. Karen attends ISCAA (International Symposium for Clinical and Applied Anatomy) annual meetings and writes articles centred on anatomy concepts, art, and the creative process.
