Karen has always been a seeker interested in science and philosophy. She began taking yoga in 2000 not only as a way to become more flexible and calm, but also because of its connection with meditation and spirituality. She enrolled in a 200 hour teacher training with Anna Pittman in 2003 to deepen her practice and because she wanted to bring more yoga to Lexington.
Karen has been teaching yoga since 2003 in the Lexington area. She went on to receive her 500 hour certification with Anna Pittman, and has also studied with Tilak Pyle, Paul Grilley, Shiva Rea, and Sarah Powers. She continues to explore present moment awareness as a central principal of her teaching and her own practice. Karen is married with two spirited young sons and spends as much time as possible immersed in the natural world as a forester with the Commonwealth of Virginia and is one of three co-owners of the studio.
