Section 1: Yoga Lessons
Ideal for the busy professional, individual lessons work around your schedule to offer flexibility and personal attention. The focus is on you to fine tune your practice, address any health concerns, hasten your progress and/or save valuable time.
Private Yoga Sessions are a wonderful introduction for those new to yoga, students looking for individual attention with their yoga practice, or to students that are unable to attend regularly scheduled classes.
Semi-Private Sessions can be shared between 3-4 students for additional savings.
Because everyone's needs are unique, each one-on-one session is customized to your needs and to fit your lifestyle. Yoga is a complementary healing modality typically working on a private, one-on-one basis, so that a person's individual situation and context can be understood and specifically addressed.

These are mixed level classed in the Vinyasa Krama tradition which are appropriate for both beginners and advanced yogis. They will challenge you physically, enrich you spiritually and increase your flexibility and well-being. From the wonderful warm-up through the relaxing, rejuvenating ending mindfulness technique, these classes are an exceptional journey through the wonders of yoga. Classes are specifically designed to help you create space in your body, allowing you to move in ways that you thought you could not. Karen is very knowledgeable and each pose is designed with body structure, alignment and safety in mind; the emphasis is on function, not form. Classes are designed for every-body with lots of modifications so poses feel good and come naturally and easily.

Section 2: Energy Healing
What to Expect in a Healing Session...
Upon arrival, you will remove your shoes and while fully clothed, relax on the massage table.
I will ground and prepare myself for our session. I will set an intention and say a prayer on your behalf.
You choose how your session is administered - light touch on your joints and chakras, hands off, or hands just above your body. I will work over and around you performing different shamanic techniques and rituals. You may hear drumming, rattles, bells, chanting, feel air being blown, have sacred rocks and crystals placed on different parts of your body, smell sage or palo santo smoke, feel a pendulum above your body, and anything else that spirit may request during the session. The healing sound of drums and rattles allow your mind to drop into a deep theta or meditative state.
Relax and let it work. The energy will do what is needed and go where needed. Most people just enjoy the experience and don't talk. However, please feel free to ask any questions or share any experiences as we go.
A typical session lasts 60 min depending on the need of the client. We will spend a brief time after to talk.
The healing work will not stop at the healing session. Shamanic Healing is very deep work that can affect the client on a deep sub-conscious level for up to a few weeks after the session. Often there are deep shifts in the body, mind and spirit. However, your intent, follow-through and integration is part of the healing work – it’s not passive.
I recommend that alcohol or any consciousness altering substances be avoided for 24 hours after a healing session (except for prescribed meditations) and that you drink a LOT of water to help in the clearing process.
