To all of you that have worked with and/or for me THANK YOU.
What has always impressed me about Karo is her energy and enthusiasm, and the way it combines with a genuine interest in both people and animals to promote her positive vision of a world that is both kind to animals, while promoting genuine human flourishing.

When I think of Karo I think energy, passion and talent! She is an incredibly motivating friend and collaborator, with high standards for excellence. She bounces around the world from job to job and seems to have the most amazing life. But when you need her she is 100% there in the moment. She fiercely stands up for what she believes in and creates her own destiny. Power to her!

Karo Tak has become something of a one-woman powerhouse in the Inner West of Sydney, Australia. Between running women’s circles to teaching Jivamukti Yoga, vegan cooking classes, acting and performing as well as committed activist work the former Sea Shepherd seems to place no limits on her enthusiasm and commitment to the betterment of the world.

I met Karo just over a month ago, i was struck by her powerful energy, passion for the causes she believes in and her dedication to Jivamukti and meditation. Our first session was mind blowing, at the end of the session i unloaded all the pressure and anguish i chose not to show the world. The hour spend with Karo was delicate, considerate, educational and most importantly invaluable to live a more purposeful life.

Dear Karo, just wanting to say how much I have enjoyed your wonderful energetic presence and fabulous passionate cooking at recent retreats. Your ability to bring such flavours texture and variety to vegan cooking is very inspirational. It must be a lot to do with the love you infuse into your craft! Hope to partake again soon in some more yummy vegan treats. Much love.

I wanted to say thank you for the beautiful 10 times the love event you put on! I don't know you, but it was crystal clear to me on Saturday night, that you are the most amazing person with such a kind soul. Your passion and drive to help all the world's beautiful animals really touched me.
It was such an inspiring evening you shared with us. More-than-delicious food, you could really taste the love and passion you put into it. The art of combining it with mindfulness, the sutras, Ahimsa. And I loved your personal experiences you wove into it, this makes it really unique and you feel connected straight from the heart. Thank you so much for sharing and caring and spreading your light!

Since this woman arrived in Lisbon she's been full force with her yoga classes, workshops, pop-ups, co-founding a soon to open cafe and education centre, AND her very special project GOPAL VEGAN CHEESE. Talk about showing up! I like to think that Lisbon is slowly starting to open up to its own evolution and Karo is leading the way with her (com)passion, commitment and seriously delicious nut-based cheeses.

I saw the photos of your new restaurant. As usual, you have created an enterprise to a very high standard of excellence. You are a perfectionist in all you do. I hope you are receiving many compliments and moral support from your customers.
