E - R.Y.T. (Experienced - Registered Yoga Teacher) has been practicing yoga for over 30 years and teaching for over 20 years.   She has a certificate and advanced certificate from White Lotus Foundation, a certificate from the Center for Thai Yoga Therapy, and a  certificate in therapeutic yoga from the Therapeutic Yoga Training Institute with
Cheri Clampett.  Her classes are a combination of breath oriented vinyasa (flow) and yin.  She also incorporates teachings from the Iyengar, Ashtanga and Deschikachar schools.  She places emphasis on proper alignment but also recognizes the individualization of body types.  Her classes consist of both yang and yin poses: heating the body - working the muscles to protect the bones; cooling the body holding more passive poses to work deeper into the connective tissue and joints.  Karen believes that the healing benefits of yoga go far beyond the classroom and that yoga can actually become a way of life.
