Karen is intelligent, thoughtful, grounded and sincere as a person and as a teacher. She is patient and kind, dedicated to her practice and all of her students. She lifts students up to help them progress in their practice while maintaining focus on keeping students safe and engaged in the inner work of their yoga practice as well as the asanas. Karen was the lead teacher on my YTT and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone. She holds space like a champ and is just really fun to be around. She made sure we all had a solid foundation with which to enter the world as teachers and also allowed us all to go on our own emotional journies while we deepened our own practices. Her individual classes were always fun and engaging; she’s great at knowing when to ramp up the challenge and when to pull back to focus on finding ease. I genuinely love, adore and respect Karen. If you have a chance to practice with her, do it!
