“When we have had a direct encounter with whom and what we are, we effortlessly share this experience as an offering in all our interactions. A sense of love and responsibility for the well-being of all humanity expands outwardly in concentric circles from ourselves, through our family, friends, and community, and beyond. This outward expansion results directly from our ability to perceive our essential selves more deeply”.

Testimonial…I completed a 200 hour training with Karen in winter of 2015. As a registered nurse, Karen’s in depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology resonated with me from the first time I encountered her. She has outstanding depth of knowledge regarding yoga philosophy and is able to weave that perspective into the science of yoga without overwhelming the student with superfluous information. ---- Cheryl Starch, RN
