The Clearmind Company

Pete and Karen Make up The Clearmind Company…

Pete discovered yoga and meditation in 2003 as a way to alleviate the physical and mental stresses of prolonged touring. Having graduated from Oxford with a Modern History degree in 1998, he went on to undertake a career as a professional bass player. A session musician for 15 years, his credits included work with artists from Beyonce to Joss Stone, and regular TV appearances including David Letterman and Jay Leno. With the itinerant lifestyle, however, came the celebrated poor health of the musician. Bad diet, late nights and no exercise began to take their toll. It was in this state that he first discovered the teachings of yoga and the powerful, life changing effects of meditation.

Karen has a background in Psychology, Philosophy, Counselling and Addiction Therapy. She has been studying and practising yoga for 15 years and has been teaching for over 10 years, holding the highest level of certification with the Yoga Alliance (SYT). Karen was among the first teachers in the UK to train in both Bikram and Baptiste Power Yoga, and has studied for 2 years in Yoga Therapy with the Yoga Biomedical Trust. She also holds certification with Master Yoga teachers Erich Schiffmann and Paul Grilley and has studied Thai Yoga Massage with Kira Balaskas.
