Karina has been a practitioner of Taichi and Qigong since 2006 under the mentorship of Mei Zhong Yan Style Taijiquan Association in Georgia and The Rising Lotus Qigong, under who she earned her Level 2 instructor certification.

An Expressive Arts Therapies Facilitator, Karina has specialized on how integrating Expressive Arts, Psychology and Qigong can benefit people’s physical and emotional wellness.

With a commitment towards healing and transformation, her approach to teaching focuses on helping students build their skills at their own pace and in a safe and supporting environment.

“Whether through a Qigong lesson, an Expressive Arts practice or my own art, my wish is to bring people to that internal place of harmony where each can reach into their own creative potential: serenity, trust, transformation and strength”.
