~ Yoga Instructor
 
Karen’s passion for yoga began in 2000 and she has been teaching at Twisters since 2005. Initially trained in Ashtanga yoga, she completed the 100-hour Anusara Immersion and has been formally trained in the HOT series as well. She has attended intensive trainings and workshops with Noah Maze, Christina Sells, Desiree Rumbaugh, Darren Rhodes and Naime Jezzeny and consistently seeks new inspirations for her own classes and practice as well.
 
Karen also holds a Masters in Education and has a background as a competitive athlete; both influence her teaching style and ability to share her knowledge and love for yoga through challenging, alignment–based classes. However, most evident are Karen’s energy, enthusiasm and genuine commitment to her students. She creates a safe and supportive environment that enables students to explore their own capabilities with freedom, confidence and security.
