Studio Owner/Teacher

 

Karen began practicing yoga in 1998 as a means to escape her fast paced life as a fashion executive in New York City. She soon discovered how a regular yoga practice brought a much needed balance to her life on both a physical and spiritual level as well as a deeper connection with herself and the world around her. She was called to teaching in 2009 and received her 200-hour certification from the Bright Spirit Yoga Teacher training with Jillian Pransky and Carrie Parker. She later went on to receive her 300-hour training and certification at ISHTA Yoga in NYC with Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger. Karen also received her Advanced Level Restorative and Therapeutics Yoga Training with Jillian Pransky at Yoga Works as well as her  Yin Yoga Levels 1 &2 certification with Ulrica Norberg and additional Yin Yoga  trainings with Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley.

 

She began teaching to teachers herself in 2013, sharing what was shared with her by these masters in various teacher training programs as well as her own Sattva Yoga Restorative Yoga training and Yin Yoga training.

 

Karen delights in teaching family yoga as well, she received both her her Kid's and Family Yoga training with Karma Kids as well as Post-Natal and Yoga Mom Buddha Baby Training with Jhotyi Larsen in 2011.

 

Classes with Karen invite a joyful opening in body, mind, and heart. Her classes are tailored from the traditional ISHTA lineage of chakra-based vinyasa yoga. ISHTA stands for the Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda.  Her classes combine the graceful flow of Vinyasa yoga and the mindful alignment of Iyengar yoga with balancing pranayama (breath), kria and meditation techniques. The word Ishta translates from sanskrit as "that which resonates with the individual spirit". She believes that yoga is all about finding the balance within ourselves that exists inherently but simply needs to be rediscovered by removing the obstacles that keep us from being our authentic selves and finding our connection with Jiva Atman, the unique spirit that resonates within all of us.

 

Candlelight Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative and often profound practice. Infused in the longer, more passive holds , Yin yoga involves surrendering into poses and exploring them for longer periods of time in order to let go of tensions stored in the body and to calm the nervous system. Practicing this way helps to target deeper connective tissues especially around the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Candlelight Yin Yoga is a peaceful way to end your day This practice will be lit entirely by candlelight helping us to balance our emotions, still our minds and open the deep connective tissues in the body using various yin asanas.
