Welcome to the Karma Kommunity fellow health nuts!
Seven years ago, we began an adventure! We uprooted our lives and moved to the middle East where we were classroom teachers for 7 years! Striking a balance as a teacher was very difficult, between paperwork, living away from family, and a high degree of stress, we knew that something was out of alignment. We needed to create a space where wellness took a precedent in our lives.
The Karma Lodge vision all started on a trip through Vietnam with a FEELING. Walking into a great rustic, serene cafe, with good food, and positive vibes - we decided we NEEDED to bring a little piece of that place home, and create a space where people felt as happy and whole as we did in that moment.
We found our balance after becoming certified yoga instructors, as well as developing a new approach to holistic eating after training with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Though it was not always easy (because man do we love food!), it remains an important daily decision in our lives, to better ourselves, in order to share our experiences with others. We started out, implementing these things within our own school community where the need was greatest (considering the Hershey's chocolate bar sandwiches that were coming in our students lunches!) Since then, we have integrated yoga, mindfulness teaching, and nutrition education into our own classroom programming, and now want to bring that to you at home and in your schools!
