Karen practices Ashtanga yoga.  This style of yoga is characterized by a focus on viysa, or a dynamic connecting posture, that creates a flow between the more static traditional yoga postures. The viysa 'flow' is a variant of the Sun Salutation. The whole practice is defined by a specific series of postures, always done in the same order, combined with specific breathing patterns (ujjy breathing).  She is experienced in all levels of the Ashtanga System of Yoga she also teaches Yoga Dance, Vinyasa Flow, Seniors, etc.  She has completed the Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Trance Dance Teacher trainings with Shiva Rea.  She has also had the honored privilege to study intensively and complete teacher training with David Swenson.  Karen has also received additional training from Doug Swenson, David Dorian Ross, Baron Baptiste, etc.
