"I have attended 6 modules of Bowenwork with Karin Twohig of the Bowenwork School of Carmel, California, both at her center in Carmel and also in Hawaii.

Her teaching style and dedication to my learning experience has impressed me greatly, and I am not alone. Almost every student in my class has continued on with all of the modules and no one has been left behind due to Karin’s constant support, flexibility and caring style. Some returning students from other classes have commented that they learned so much more about the technique in Karin’s class than in any other they had attended and felt much more confident about their abilities. Even a long time graduate from another class said that she now really understood a lot more about what she was doing since attending a refresher course with Karin.

There is a lot to learn and it seems easy in her classes. There is a tremendous amount of hands-on learning right from the start, both giving and receiving the Bowenwork. It seems that this keeps the students excited and interested as well as being able to actually get to “feel” what the work is all about from different hands and on different bodies.

Karin creates a low-pressure environment while maintaining a fully educational experience where you leave having learned more than you thought. She is adamant about the form and sticks with you ‘til you get it. Karin is fully dedicated to the original Bowen technique as taught by Tom Bowen and does not let you slide by because she is going to make sure that if you want to become a certified Bowen Practitioner, you will."
