After over a decade of practicing, and five years teaching yoga, Karen has come to the conclusion that she loves it deeply, both as a teacher and a student. She teaches a soul-nourishing heart-centered class, with a strong focus on alignment and breath.
Her Vinyasa Flow class is a strong intermediate level and is a fusion of all of the traditions she has been trained in, bringing a variety of energy from around the globe, that softly melts into a restorative yin flavor. Her Yin class is a slow gentle class which draws a deep sense of awareness inwardly, this helps to nourish, restore and renew the body, mind, and soul. Ending gently with a Yoga Nidra styled savasana giving the perfect sense of healing.
“My parents both practiced yoga. And from a young age, I had learned meditation and practiced the Satyananda tradition of yoga. My first step onto the mat felt like I had returned home, to myself and to my heart. Yoga is the only constant in my life, regardless of life’s ups and downs, no matter age, people, places, time, or finance… yoga is there. Yoga has no prejudices and no judgments.”
Karen also loves to paint, cook, and hike in nature. You will find Karen in the ocean or traveling to remote destinations around our planet. She has been teaching full time for about 5 years all over the world from Sacred Valley, Peru, to Byron Bay, Australia, Los Angeles at a number of various health resorts, as well as private classes and retreats and assisting teacher-trainings in Central and South America. She has returned to Costa Rica and calls Danyasa home.
