Karen was born and raised in the Midwest and is a dedicated student and teacher of the practice of Power Yoga. She has been a fitness enthusiast of all kinds since her days as a college student-athlete, yet more specifically dedicated to her yoga practice since the birth of her first child more than 10 years ago.
During those hectic times of new motherhood, she stumbled across a yoga studio in Michigan as an attempt to find an outlet for the stressors of life, but discovered much more…an intense passion for the practice and it's life changing capabilities. She then decided to share that passion by attaining her 200 hour teacher training with Jonny Kest…master teacher of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and meditation. She trained under Kest for three years before moving to Wisconsin where she had the privilege to teach in a variety of settings—including schools and universities. Her classes are challenging, yet accessible to all levels, and carefully built upon the Baptiste Power Yoga foundations.
In addition to teaching yoga, Karen holds her personal trainer certification through the International Sports and Science Association (ISSA), and is also involved in the National Charity League of New Hampshire.
She resides in Bedford NH with her husband and three children Bailey, Izzy, and Jack.
