When Karen began practicing in 1991, she was looking for relief from chronic back pain but was ultimately hooked by the freedom she experienced in both her mind and her body. Through both her yoga practice and non-profit work, her mission is a life of service.
When Karen teaches, she strives to give her students the confidence to get deep into poses and the opportunity to open their bodies while finding some peace of mind on their mat. Her challenging slow flow classes, taught to contemporary music, are alignment-based, playful and woven with humor and Buddhist mindfulness.
In addition to teaching yoga, Karen continues to connect to her life of service through her work as a consultant building community in the art world. She is on the same path as her students by trying to find balance in life while being present and connecting with her breath, body and mind.
"KAREN IS A TEACHER COMFORTABLE IN HER OWN VOICE, NOT CHANNELING WHAT SHE IMAGINES A YOGA TEACHER SHOULD SOUND LIKE. I THINK SHE IS SUPERB."
