As an avid exercise enthusiast, Karen’s yoga journey began in January 2015, when she sought out a yin yoga class to help soothe her body after a running injury. Skeptical to the benefits of yoga beyond the physical, she had no idea what she was getting herself into. Ninety minutes later, she walked out of the studio a different person — her life was completely changed by the mind-body connection of the entire yoga experience.
From there, she dove head-first into her yoga practice. The literal twists, turns, and challenges that the practice presented her with have helped to shape and transform her into who she is becoming today. With a desire to deepen her knowledge and bring her love of yoga to others, Karen decided to complete her 200hr YTT at Johns Creek Yoga under the guidance of Sheila McVay, graduating in December 2017.
Karen’s background is in writing, photography, and anthropology. It is from this intersection that motivates her style: to connect authentically to her students by infusing creativity, imagery, science, and spirituality into her yoga classes. A self-proclaimed “unicorn,” Karen lives life in color and with an open heart, allowing the magic of the mundane to inspire her daily.
Karen is a native Floridian and proud Florida Gator. She is married with two young boys, and has been a professional photographer for over twelve years.
