MY OVERALL PHILOSOPHY
My aim is to point you back to yourself. I help you and encourage you to burn away that which dims your light and to remove obstacles that get in your way. I inspire you to live your life to your fullest potential. So, you can be the best that you can be and shine and radiate as your true, divine self.
MY GOALS FOR YOU – ALIGN. ENERGIZE. HEAL.
My objective is for you to feel successful in any of the following.
ALLOW YOUR YOGA PRACTICE TO SUPPORT YOUR LIFE
Discover yoga practices and daily living practices to keep your mind, body, and spirit strong, supple, engaged, and peaceful.
For example, I practice yoga to keep my body strong and supple, I practice pranayama to keep my mind calm, I walk in nature to keep energy flowing and to release any built up tensions, I bike so that I feel free, I grow a garden to stay connected to the medicines from the earth, I pray to connect to gratitude, I study and read yoga texts to stay close to the light of truth, and I write poetry as an expression of love and inspiration.
MY VALUES AS A YOGA PRACTIONER
I apply the Yamas and Niyamas during my own yoga practice and when working with yoga practitioners.
I met Kari on my travels in Pai, (Thailand). I was so lucky to have the chance to practice with her on my morning sessions. Kari showed me with a few words and gentle adjustments the way to open my heart. But more valuable to integrate & strengthen that open heart. Kari is an authentic,natural born teacher who shares her experience from deep down in her beautiful heart! Everlasting gratitude."
I had the distinct pleasure of studying yoga and taking classes with Roger and Kari in Madison for around four years. I learned volumes! As another student put it, their method of teaching is like the “philosopher’s stone” applied to yoga. Classes were both insightful and delightful on account of Kari’s whimsical sense of humor. The vibe was intense and focused yet without taking anything too seriously. We had fun while devoting ourselves to precise alignment. I highly recommend their Iyengar-style technique and Kari‘s personal teaching style!"
I have known Kari for a number of years. She is unequaled in her dedication to using yoga as a vehicle to understand her place in the world and make an impact in the lives of those she encounters. She has a deep knowledge of the workings of the human body – derived from her personal practice and her many years of teaching. She approaches each individual as a unique person and treats all with respect. Besides that, she has a great sense of humor and an assured yet gentle manner."
Kari Tomashik is a true and kind teacher of Eischens Yoga. She has taken Roger Eischen’s groundbreaking work much further. Kari is both a very clear communicator who can help the uninitiated and experienced practitioner to learn about their body/mind/spirit, and an experimenter who keeps her ego out of the way of her focus on the learner.
