Hi, I'm Karen
I am a teacher, here to guide you. To teach you about yoga, the magic of your energy, emotional and physical strength, and how to get to know yourself from the inside-out. Learn how to get and stay spiritually switched-on and add more bliss to your life.
I've had an interesting and diverse life. I've been married twice and raised one son. I've worked in Human Resources, retail management, the airline industry, interior design and yoga, dance and fitness. I've done a lot of study in human behavior, and spiritual and personal growth. I've had my share of loss, pain, and adversity but I've learned that being able to connect to compassion, forgiveness and my soulful, spiritual side that life can still be full of bliss. I've traveled to more than 30 countries and have lived in the cold Canadian prairies, the US northeast, the beaches of Southern California, and most recently the Sonoran desert of Arizona.
What Gets Me Out of Bed In
I want to inspire you - to step on a yoga mat, to try meditation, to listen to your intuition, to put on your gym shoes and train your body to stay functional and strong, to live your life in a way that brings you joy. I want to inspire you to find ways to raise your vibration and find what brings you bliss everyday.

- Holly S.
"I have been practicing yoga for 14 years; about 4-5 times a week. During this time, I have been taught by multiple yoga instructors some good; some not so good. About 3 years ago I had the pleasure of taking one of Karen’s classes. I was immediately hooked. Karen brings so much knowledge to each and every class. Her instruction is like no other. She not only guides you by telling you what to do; but she also tells you what not to do, and why. Karen is well versed in fitness training which is a bonus for any yoga instructor . Her classes are well thought out, and she has a cute sense of humor which makes the classes even more fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend her classes to anyone—from beginning to advanced. You won’t be disappointed."

"Karen's yoga classes are unlike any other. Her many years of asana teaching comes through in each of her classes. I love that she is educated in other modalities as well because she brings functional movement into the yoga class as well. I feel awesome after yoga with Karen! She is so knowledgeable and because she has education in so many other areas, I feel safe under her instruction. Karen is amazing!"
- Elena S.
"I just want to thank you again; I feel like you always give me exactly what I need. You made my day and gave me inspiration. I am making choices for how I spend my time and you are always a choice."
"Karen's level one yoga class was one of the very first classes I ever took. I attribute my love of yoga to her teaching style and wisdom. She has a great way of explaining and breaking down poses into a way that is easy to understand. Then she builds on that slowly as you get stronger to teach more advanced poses. She also has a beautiful way of bringing mindfulness and spirit into the practice. I have learned so much from Karen and know you will love her too."
