What was your path to yoga OR what has yoga brought to your life? 


I am a life-long student of yoga by way of a thirteen-year detour as an attorney. The imprint was formed at a very young age when my parents met as yoga instructors at the Yoga Center in San Francisco in the seventies. A child of the yoga boom in California, I was doing lotus pose in quiet meditations before kindergarten and reciting quotes about the limitless nature of the cosmos to entertain myself while I drew pictures of horses or made up stories about my stuffed animals. Through yoga, I was made. I am interested in all forms of awareness, kindness, and energy. I teach Hatha and Vinyasa yoga with a focus on mindfulness, transformation, and dedication. We flow. We work. We breathe. We play. You set the intentions and we reach them together.

Favorite pose: Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II),  Lizard (Utthan Pristhasana) 

What are 3 adjectives to describe you? Verbose, passionate, driven. (A kind storm.) 


I have always wanted to try yoga but never had the time and also didn't feel confident to walk into a yoga studio. A friend told me about the Yoga NoHo Center and suggested I try their four pack of private lessons. Wow, this changed my life. They not only deepen my physical yoga practice, but I learned how to breath, meditate and now I am going for the complete Super You 30 Day Detox.

I am a mother of two very active young boys and it was time for some me time. My friend recommended the Yoga NoHo Center because they offer both the new hot infrared classes and traditional yoga classes. I was brand new to yoga and they suggested to take at least one private lesson. I actually bought their 4 pack and I am glad I did because Karen actually took extra time with me, even after my four lessons and guided me through the first few months of taking public classes. Now one year later, I can't believe how much my life has changed for the absolute better. Thank you to all the teachers at the Yoga NoHo Center!
