Hobbies/Passions: Throughout my life, music, dance, film and performance have been my greatest modes of connecting with people. When I think of all my greatest friendships, we connected through our love for an artist, our dedication to dance or bonding over a funny tv show. I spend a lot of time absorbing art and talking about how it alters my consciousness with friends. One of my favorite pastimes is “wasting” a day..

 

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

 

The first time I was exposed to yoga was in 4th grade. I had a Montessori teacher who was very into meditation, silent retreats, telling epic stories and sometimes offered yoga in the afternoons. (His brother was also a famous actor.. The connection between the healer and the storyteller is ancient. Their purpose and intentions are not far from each other.) I would participate in his class to avoid doing school work, but I was frustrated that I couldn’t perform a perfect Triangle pose. I felt unsettled in my body the entire time, but when we reached Savasana pose I still felt accomplished.

 

Since a young age, I have been slowly building my movement vocabulary, spending most of my life training in various dance forms to release energy, channel my ancestors and spirits, and exchange cultures through art. Since graduating from UCLA in 2016 with a degree in dance, I perform when possible and orbit the circles of theatre and comedy. With years of experience in pilates, ballet and modern dance I can offer good tips to help you find your correct alignment. What is important to me on this ongoing journey with yoga is promoting a healthy, challenging practice and embodying the cyclical practice of seeing and being seen. In my class, we welcome the healing power of movement and bear witness to our bodies and emotions as they are today.

 

Favorite pose: Savasana Corpse pose and Sirsasana Headstand

What are 3 adjectives to describe you? Dynamic, Loving, Ginger

Testimonials 

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!
