Karen Attreed aka YogiLocks

Hi, my name is Karen a.k.a. Yogilocks! Through my website I want to share with you my love of yoga both on and off the mat.  But first a little about myself..........

When I started my yoga teaching journey I had lived on a boat with my husband Nick and my dog Jack.  The boat was a lovely 70ft narrowboat which is electric powered, running off solar and wind.  My husband has spent the last few years fitting the boat out and trying to accommodate all my yoga kit and a space for me to practice - he really has worked miracles!!  Since then life has taken quite a big change in direction and we have now moved into a house, sadly our wonderful dog Jack passed away and the little border collie Angel has arrived. Brings home the reality that ‘change’ is the one thing you can guarantee on in life, however through all the ups and downs yoga stays with us.

My mum had practiced yoga on and off for as long as I could remember but it was only about 15 years ago that I became interested in yoga - and yes I do hear  myself saying''why didn't I listen to her earlier'!  Most of my personal practice has been studying with Iyengar teachers in Nottingham.  A few years ago I decided to embark on the journey of becoming a teacher and recently qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga and that is where my love of sharing yoga with others really began.
