Karen Nordstrom (RYT-200) University of Vermont Dept. of Environmental Studies. For Karen, Yoga has served as an anchor that has kept her grounded regardless of the shifts and swells connected to the tides of life. 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 teaching of Yoga to understand these interconnected thoughts and feelings. This led her to complete the 200-hour TT with Candra Prabha at Burlington Yoga in 2012.
Karen’s most recent interests lie at the intersection of contemplative practice and sustainability, centered on the Yoga tradition. This emphasis combines her work in higher education, within the field of environmental studies, with her teaching practice centered on Yoga—a combination that allows her to develop and reflect upon these teaching and learning contexts in myriad ways.
While teaching, Karen’s intention is to create conditions for the transformative power of Yoga to take root and grow within each practitioner.
