Hello and welcome! Through the practice of yoga we can heal old wounds and find the light within. I offer the healing modalities that have and continue to work for me; asana (gentle flow + restorative), meditation, and active breathwork energy healing. I guide my classes and hold space for clients to help them find courage, move stagnant energy blocks, and quiet the chatter of the mind. This enables us to find confidence, inner strength, and most importantly, self-love. From there we can live a life led from the heart, guided by the soul, and filled with joy! I call this yogic soul work.

There are many ways we can work together; one on one sessions (NYC + Skype), group classes and workshops, articles, and my collection of resources to aid your at home practice.  I'm also available for corporate self-care and private events.  Hope to see you soon!

xx, Karen

Upcoming Workshops


Forgiveness brings peace. As we start to enter into the holiday season old resentments can start to fester. Feelings of guilt can resurface. Let's take time to release any grudges, bitterness, and any toxic thoughts before we reconnect with our traditions and families. Let's find ways to not only forgive others but to forgive ourselves as well. Through practicing twist poses we will wring out the physical body of old stories. Through long held restorative poses we will prepare ourselves to receive in a fresh perspective. This will lower our blood pressure and anxiety, strengthen our immune system, improve self-esteem, as well as aid our rest and digest system. All levels welcome. Props are provided. Space is limited. Book ahead to reserve your space.

Yoga in Bay Ridge is located at 9016 4th Ave in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
