Karen was introduced to yoga in 2008 through a friend with a yoga Groupon voucher. On that fateful day, she attended her first and last Bikram class. She quickly learned that this style of yoga wasn’t for her, but enjoyed the community experience of a group class, and for the next 10+ years would take classes of different styles and methods. Some of her most memorable class experiences were through Restorative Yoga; memorable because of the minimal effort required to feel calm and relaxed. Secondary to being a student of yoga, her love for teaching/guiding slow movement classes like Restorative Yoga is something she insists on offering in a world of burnout and hustle mentality.
Karen is a certified yoga teacher and Level 1 Reiki practitioner (through Carol Righton) with over 350 hours of teaching experience specializing in Restorative and Yin styles yoga. She completed her 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training and continues to educate herself through continuing education yoga programs and the matters that affect underserved communities in the wellness space.
