Karen was interested in yoga for about ten years before taking her first group yoga class. She was afraid to try yoga because she thought her body was not a yoga body.


Karen fell in love with yoga during that first class, and over the years since it has become her joy and passion to share yoga with others -- particularly with those who are reluctant to try yoga for the same reasons she once was. Karen believes that yoga is a beneficial practice -- in part due to research showing its benefits, and in part because of the positive mental, emotional, and physical changes she has experienced since finding yoga.

​Karen strives to lead classes that are inclusive of everyone present, offering options for postures so that those brand new to yoga as well as long-time practitioners may benefit.

All body sizes, genders, backgrounds, and abilities are welcome, and it is Karen's goal to make sure you are safe, respected, and have fun!
