Karen Tickner has always described herself as an undercover mermaid. Growing up on the beach, her idea of the perfect day involves being in or on the water learning from her greatest teacher. “The ocean has taught me about life. I’ve learned that sometimes I can’t change things, but I can go with the flow.” It is with those life lessons that Karen found a love for helping others as a certified Mermaid & Freediving instructor, yoga teacher, synchronized swimmer, and wellness coach with well over 5,000 hours of training. She believes a person’s path to happiness is easier than they want to believe, and that small changes in daily life can create big results. Her straightforward, simple, and clear approach makes her a successful and inspiring teacher and coach. Karen blends her passion for wellness with her passions for mermaids and freediving, allowing her to teach programming for all levels all over the world and inspiring others to follow their dreams.
