(she/her/hers) Having moved from Massachusetts to Maine just two months ago, I am thrilled to have new doors open to me as a yoga teacher. A certified yoga teacher since 2005, I want to share what I know in my body, mind and spirit about the value of practicing yoga for our health as we grow older. My classes are designed to be life-affirming, heart-opening and empowering, to calm the mind as they bring deeper energy to the body. They include heart-based themes and clear alignment principles. I encourage your deeper discovery of how to stay strong, flexible, balanced, agile and calm through yoga, whatever your age. I help you to bring this awareness into your life and to appreciate the transformation you create. We do this together. You are my teachers in every moment. I have been taught and influenced by many different yoga traditions over the years, including Kripalu, Iyengar and Anusara. I have studied with many outstanding teachers, including Todd Norian, Baxter Bell and Melina Meza, to name a few. In this process over many years, I have discovered who I am. My teaching style doesn’t have a recognizable name. It’s yoga with Karen. A yoga student since 1990, yoga teaching marks a second career in my life, following a long-term career in educational research. Though my two careers are very different, they both have at the center my commitment to students’ deep and engaged learning.
Come join me on the mat!
