For Karen, teaching Yoga became a natural progression from many years of personal inquiry into the practice—connected to the simplicity of showing up for class. There came a time when she felt that her Yoga practice had become her spiritual practice, and she therefore needed to delve more deeply into the study of Yoga to understand these interconnected thoughts and feelings. This led her to complete the 200-hour Teacher Training with Candra Prabha at Burlington Yoga in 2012. As a UVM faculty member in Nutrition and Food Sciences and Program Specialist with the Green House Residential Learning Community, Karen’s most recent interests lie at the intersection of contemplative practice and sustainability. This emphasis allows her to combine her work in higher education, teaching concepts of sustainability and food systems, with her Yoga teaching—weaving contemplative practice into these teaching and learning contexts in a myriad of ways. While Yoga has served as an anchor that has kept Karen grounded regardless of the shifts and swells connected to the tides of life, Karen's intention is to create conditions for the transformative power of Yoga to take root and grow within each practitioner who joins her classes.
