"I wanted to extend my thanks for all that my teachers have offered me in the yoga community.  To Karen Pierce for sharing such a depth and breadth of yogic knowledge.  Her playful classes have always been inspired by the spiritual heart of yoga, and her sincere respect for the teachings. - Taran, Yoga & Reiki teacher

"I am writing my first paper for Yoga Therapy Training and had a blast from the past discussing my first yoga class and felt it was proper and important to share.  My first yoga class was when I was eleven years old. I was placed in an after school program downtown in Connecticut to keep me occupied during my parent’s divorce. This class was a free class offered by Karen Pierce. She became my first, and most important, contributor to my spirituality. Every Tuesday, I would go to her hour yoga and meditation class and it was my favorite part of my week. She taught me how to properly breath, guided meditations, yoga philosophy and sattva intentions, complex yoga poses and how to prepare for them, and truly took me to the present moment with all of the Vinyasas. She cheered for me when I accomplished a pose I had been working on and pushed me into believing in myself when I wanted to give up. I was so blessed to be the only person in her classes many of days, I got true one on one work with Karen that today I would do anything to experience again. I also got to share the gift with friends some weeks, convincing them to attend as well, and they too fell in love! Many of them are yoga instructors to this day. Her classes gave me insight of what I wanted to do when I was older and free to do whatever I dreamed; I wanted to teach and share the gift of yoga and meditation. Stress management of my teenage years, the capability of know thyself, and the forever bellowing laugh would have been put off for years if it was not for Karen. Thank You Karen, you helped me find the world." ~ Olivia Q., Yoga teacher

"I came to Karen's class through the recommendation of a friend. I was new to yoga, and have had hip, back and neck pain for years. I was skeptical that Yoga could help any more than the chiropractor or other things I tried.  Karen is practiced in different types of yoga styles and is experienced in therapeutic yoga. She brings her knowledge and experience to her class and encourages each person to listen to their own bodies. I have been taking Karen's class for over a year now, and I sometimes cannot believe how much better I feel. I have less pain, more energy and I am able to move more. My family has also noticed the difference! Thank you Karen! " - A. Heusted

 

"I just want to thank you Karen, and let you know the difference your classes have made in my life this past year. Understanding how/why yoga poses and breathing go together and being able to take this and use it in my life daily has enabled me to begin to recover from three years of unthinkable tragedies. These multiple events had overtaken my whole body/mind with grief and everything in my life had lost any sense of normalcy and peace. I was unable to focus, sleep, think. Your classes have and continue to help me move forward with my journey toward recovery; something I did not think would be possible." ~ Pat M. 

 

"Thanks so much for class.  I felt as it reinforced my body to find the posture that is good and I can sustain it.  The next day I was able to take the attention pose without any discomfort or sense of straining myself.  The detailed instructions really made sense to my body and I knew my posture is good b/c I felt good in it! That was one of my hopes to attain a good alignment through yoga and not to be flexible more or look good (well that too, lol) but to feel good in my body, spot the mis-alignments and make adjustments with safety." ~Lenka K, Massage Therapist

 

"I have been loving my yoga practice. Since we really only had that one session, it helped me by making me more aware of just what was going on or should I say what was not going on and how I can work to correct these imbalances. I am unable to do the usual exercises that many people do, not just because of the prosthetic leg but because I have crazy compensatory patterns because of my spina bifida.  It also helped with body awareness and gave me hope!"  ~ Barbara O., Reiki Master

 

"Most informative, helpful yoga class I've ever taken!” - Laura D.

 

"I had a life altering health event this fall, which precipitated my meeting Karen.  Karen has been wonderful.  A great yoga instructor, an all-around teacher, an advisor, and most of all, a friend.  She's been there for me through my ups and downs, always maintaining a sympathetic demeanor and a steady hand.  Quite honestly, I don't know what I'd do if I hadn't met her, she's been that good!" - Al K., Marketing Consultant  (Sadly, Al passed away from a brain tumor.  His wife contacted me to let me know how much yoga was a gift and that Al was practicing his yogic breathing right up to his last breath.)

 

“I hope other people get the opportunity to work with Karen the way I have, she's a life saver!" - Steve M., Engineer

 

"Karen's class is not just the ordinary class. It is a 1-1/2 hour journey to some beautiful place; it is an experience you want to last. Every time I exit that door, I feel refreshed, rejuvenated, renewed. I am a better person." - Katerina K, Engineer

 

“Your way of teaching yoga is very different from all of the yoga teachers I have had...and it makes the most sense!  I really like it and have had lots of  different teachers through the years... I am spoiled now!! - Carol Z, Artist

 

“Karen is incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of yoga, and has been especially helpful to me with the back injuries I’ve suffered from for many years.  Karen is an inspiration and has given me so much hope and motivation to continue working toward better health.  I highly recommend Karen, and feel she is without a doubt the best yoga teacher I have ever met.” – Kerry M., Office Manager

 

“After taking 200 hours of teacher training, taking classes all over the country, my heart belongs to Karen!  There is no class that includes all of this: spirituality, yoga, fun, therapy and a challenging physical asana practice.  Karen moves her class through specific poses with intention, leading to a challenge pose that you KNOW you could never do.  Except that you are doing it, with Karen’s compassionate, loving guidance.”  - Lisa R., Yoga Teacher

 

“I started to see Karen after a friend recommended that I try yoga after having had surgery.  I was afraid to hurt myself but Karen was ready to listen to my concerns and suggested the best way to approach my sessions in a way that would help me and not hurt me.  I feel great and energized every time I leave my sessions." - Jess, Dancer

 

“I suffered from mid and lower back pain and felt I needed to start a proper pre-natal exercise program.  Karen was instrumental in designing a terrific exercise and yoga program which helped me to decrease my pain and improved my overall flexibility and strength.  In addition, she reinforced proper stretches and positions to help counter a difficult labor.  She was a great motivator and knew when and how to push me for optimal benefit without compromising my safety." - Beth A., M.D.

 

“I have seen an amazing change in my strength, stamina and flexibility since beginning with Karen.  I attribute the change entirely to the yoga training.” – Joanna Cole, Author "The Magic Schoolbus"

 

“Karen is a most remarkable instructor in that she places the utmost emphasis on form as well as the internal, more cerebral, aspect of whatever she is demonstrating.  Ultimately, Karen’s method led me to the beauty and symmetry of yoga. “ – Joyce H., Art Teacher

 

“Karen has a unique ability to communicate with students of all levels.  But, while her teaching ability is unbeatable, her strength lies in teaching that the practice of yoga in the classroom translates into balance in all aspects of life.” – Diane F., Personal Trainer

 

“I began taking yoga 8 years ago and Karen was my first instructor.  It is a testament to Karen that I am still taking yoga today.  Karen is very aware of the capabilities of each yoga participant in her class.  She never pushes any of her students past their abilities.”  - Tom B., Environmental Consultant

 

“Thanks for preparing us so beautifully so it seemed like the most natural progression of the practice.  I appreciated your knowledge, clear instructions and easy-going manner, as well as your physical assists." - Gloria O., Yoga Studio Owner

 

“We really appreciate the information about what you taught the kids.  What a wonderful influence on the young ones in this Hannah Montana-Nintendo-sugar filled world!  It helps us as parents to reinforce the right messages too."  - Jenny I., parent

 

"I did want to thank you for your final relaxation that you played at the end of every session.  I have been using the imagery ever since Nicolas was born to help me get back to sleep after being up with him in the middle of the night.  They truly have been a lifesaver, so thanks again." - Kristin D., CPA

 

“I just wanted to take the time to thank you for presenting such outstanding workshops to both the school staff and students.  The information for the teachers was informative and very interesting, and the program for the students was beautifully presented and just a whole lot of fun!” – Dawn D., PTA Cultural Chair

Yoga Teacher Training

"Training to become a yoga teacher with Karen Pierce has been an incredible journey. Karen is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. I am awe-struck by the phenomenal yoga teacher-training manual that she has assembled and shared, and her expert pedagogy of the subject and all its allied fields. Karen has shown us that yoga is not just physical exercise, breathing, and meditation; it is everything – Anatomy, Auras, Chakras, Meridians, Nadis, Energetic Bodies, Shamanism, Crystal Healing, Ayurveda, Bandhas, Mudras, Mantras, and lots of yogic philosophy and Sanskrit thrown in the mix.  An angel must have been guiding me to Karen Pierce's Yoga Teacher Training Program, because it has been a beautiful life-changing experience for me.  I feel much happier, healthier and more optimistic for whatever the future brings." - Karen B, Tutor

An angel must have been guiding me to Karen Pierce’s Yoga Teacher Training Program, because it has been a beautiful life-changing experience for me. I feel much happier, healthier and more optimistic for whatever the future brings.” - Karen B

"I have been wanting to do another 200 Teacher Training for a while and when I saw your name pop up on my Facebook page - I knew God was sending me a message - it was my time to explore with you.  I feel so blessed that I got to experience this with you as my teacher, since you were the one who got me hooked on Yoga @ Sportsplex many years ago.  I loved learning more about the chakras, mudras, mantras, all the different breathing techniques, meditations, Shamanism, Doshas...How Ayurveda is a life style - that works with your Doshas and what happens when they are out of balance - makes so much sense to me.  Love the 7 Directions - that's why your classes always feel so balanced.  Teaching this way has opened up my teaching style - I feel like I have a full toolbox going into my classes.  All the other types of classes you have exposed us to during YTT: Chair Yoga, Ball/Wall Class, Joint Freeing Series, Restoratives - and encouraging us to take other styles - So I learned Yin yoga, Ashtanga, Hot Yoga - through this experience.  You really have showed me so many different ways to teach - I feel the yoga mat is our canvas to explore different styles and techniques.  Your guided meditations are like no other - you can't teach that - it's your GIFT.  I can't thank you enough for this amazing journey.  There truly are no words to express my gratitude - there are so many more things to write about - I could go on and on - I have learned so much in this 200 Teacher Training - My love for yoga has grown even deeper, which I didn't think was possible - Thank you from the bottom of my heart."  - Jan C, Personal Trainer

"I just want to start off by saying these past 10 months have been absolutely incredible.  I have learned more about myself than ever before and finally feel "whole" as a person.  This experience was not what I expect at all...it was way more!  I wanted to do YTT to basically learn more advanced poses to increase my physical practice.  We did some of those but the other things I learned about my own self, spirituality, and how to change the world were way more valuable." - Drew D., Mental Health Counselor

When looking for Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) programs to offer at YogaSpace, I was so amazed that our very own Karen Pierce had put together such an amazing program.  In my first meeting with Karen, we discussed her offering and it was like a dream come true for me.  She had a comprehensive program that easily fit into our schedule without major disruptions in our class schedule.  Karen's program teaches true Yoga not a style.  The trainees coming out of our first class are all teaching different styles of yoga "their style" at a high level of competence.  They all embodied yoga in their own way.  Since it was our first YTT, I decided to audit the training and was blown away by the depth of knowledge Karen has in the whole subject of yoga and beyond.  She presents it with a fun easy-going delivery stopping often to tell stories and answer questions.  I have to say the InnerSpaces Training is by far the most comprehensive I have taken.  This is my third 200-hour training.  I have been teaching since 2007 and my first training was in the Anusara style.  My second training was taken online with Sadie Nardini, both were wonderful, but Karen went the extra mile to make sure the trainees embodied yoga.  The manual is amazingly detailed, a fantastic reference I will use over and over.  Her teaching on using the 7 directions for sequencing is a very powerful tool.  I was introduced to Shamanism and how it related to yoga; this helped me see more clearly how powerful we really are.  Karen is a wonderful person to work with and I consider her a master teacher." - Rob Farella RYT, Partner YogaSpace

 

"Thank you so much for everything you have put into the class and for sharing so much of yourself and your knowledge.  I think you are amazing.  This experience has been everything you said it would be and more and was better beyond my expectations." - Jacque, Hospital Administrator

II have never really thought about so much of what I am learning in this process.  I have had a few "aha" moments.  I wasn't sure exactly why I wanted to take YTT but I am learning so much abut myself." - Darlene

I have never really thought about so much of what I am learning in this process.  I have had a few "aha" moments.  I wasn't sure exactly why I wanted to take YTT but I am learning so much about myself. One of my favorite sections was on the subtle anatomy.  This is what was missing from my practice.  I also enjoyed the anatomy videos by Paul Grilley I watched as part of our homework.  The human body is so amazing.  Taking this YTT has forever changed my life.  I honestly don't think I would have gotten through the death of my mother and brother had I not taken this course.  I would have been lost.  I am forever thankful for having you as my teacher and I am so glad I opened and red your Musings from the Mat email.  It was the right time for me and somehow you knew I needed it." - Darlene

"I' was excited to hear you'll be combining a lot of energy body practices along with the physical and spiritual practices into this training.  To me yoga is less about perfecting outer poses and more about moving energy and becoming aware of how that effects us." - Gloria, Artist & Yoga Teacher  

 

Energy Medicine

"​I wanted to share something interesting with you.  I had ordered a newly created Mystical Shaman Oracle Deck a little while back and I received it just after I saw you.  I've been getting to know the deck and I've gotten the Soul Retrieval card a couple of times already, with the message that....You are no longer fragmented; you have healed the cause of the pain you feel, so you do not need to dwell on it any longer; if you are still hovering over an old wound, find a new flight path."  I love the way things work!  Thank you for the other day, it was very helpful." - Cindy D. (After a Soul Retrieval session)

"OMG in the soul retrieval (daughter) had such a clear and detailed description of her experience.  She told me more tonight about her experience 12/14/12 than she has in 5 years combined.  She hasn't stopped talking.  It is incredible, beyond amazing!  She said she feels so good and thanked me for finding you.  I would say you have absolutely helped both of us more than any therapy has.  I am completely blown away and can't wait to see where this takes her.  What a beautiful experience for her."  - A.U.

"I really loved the session!  The cord cutting, chakra balancing...letting go of negative energies.  So much mental clarity all week."  - Paula, Teacher

"OMG! And the shifts keep coming.  Thank you so much! - Elpida, Medium & Psychic

​​"It's like some crazy floodgate has been opened.  It maybe more than just a bit of an impact.  Is it usual to reassess every single part of one's life after something like that?  Pretty powerful.  Thank you!" - C.P.

"Karen is an incredibly gifted healer.  I had mildly dislocated my shoulder and could only raise it a little bit.  I left with zero pain and full range of mobility!  My husband was dealing with a health issue.  Without telling her what it was, Karen was drawn directly to that area to work on and he hasn't had problems since!  The spiritual and emotional healing benefits are what's most profound to me.  Karen helped me to let go of years of built up negative gunk.  I feel lighter and freer and more connected to the Divine and to myself." - Stephanie D., Author & Speaker

"Very good things are happening and there's no way it's all a coincidence.  You have found your calling.  You are one powerful woman!" - Adele, Realtor

"After my visit with you, I walked out the door feeling great.  So much energy running through me and I felt like I was tripping.  That lasted almost two weeks.  Mentally more alert, cognitively good and positive thinking all around.  I felt stronger mentally and physically which has helped me work through the depression.  I think shamanism is powerful and very helpful. - Nick, IT


​"I am so blown away from the report [Numerology]. I just skimmed it. Will definitely need to read a few times to digest. Right on in so many ways. Very insightful. I am definitely on a new journey. Thank you Karen." - Donna R, Yoga teacher

"I so appreciate all you did today - I know time will tell the full extent.  You are such a lovely person and I feel extremely fortunate to have met you/been placed in your path.  What a gift to this world you are!  I am feeling so HAPPY today - light and not anxious at all.  That is a definite shift from this past week...You lifted something heavy, for sure." - Beth, Teacher

 

"​So much stagnant energy shifted within me under your guidance, during and after your class. It's been a godsend to feel light flowing through again! It was a true gift to be your student and to find that the message and techniques you teach are delivered in such a way that they continue to permeate as time goes on. Beautiful." - Jenni S.

"I had a profound experience through meditation on Sunday!  Didn't share but I was visited by two spirit animals.  Predominate one: peacock.  With a panther to my left.  I'm delighted by the meanings behind these visions.  It makes total sense to me.  Looking forward to next Sunday.  Thank you for this opportunity." - Colleen (Learning how to Journey to find their Spirit Guide & Power Animal in Karen's Tools for Transformation class.)

Energy Medicine for Pets

"My boyfriend and I rescued our dog, Nala, about a year ago.  We quickly realized that she had severe separation anxiety, and at times would become difficult to control.  We called Karen in hopes that she could help us relieve some of the anxiety.  The first time Karen worked with Nala, Nala was very hyperactive.  Karen walked me through the process and was very patient with her.  The second time, however, Nala jumped right up and seemed to enjoy the energy balancing.  We saw a big difference in her demeanor after just several sessions.  Karen is professional, knowledgeable, and patient with animals.  I highly recommend that anyone considering energy balancing work with Karen." - Danielle, Teacher

"I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Karen the summer of 2019.  I was not seeking her services and had no idea the depth of her training and capabilities.  My dog and I have been nursing ACL injuries and trying to avoid surgery by adhering to the same rehabilitation regimen required post surgery.  Weight was an issue that was easily corrected but ACL injuries are very difficult to heal physically and mentally for a very active dog.  This type of an injury almost always effects both legs eventually because of compensation and ultimately the hips.  After a few sessions with Karen, Fred's range of motion improved drastically and proper hip rotation has returned.  He has been using his hind legs in an almost hopping motion but now has a proper gait and uses the hind legs independently.  Karen's energy work was unbelievable.  I am so grateful our paths crossed.  Thanks Karen!  Fred is still improving. - Joanne M., Nurse  

Tools for Transformation

"I am always looking for new tools to put in my toolbox, though usually it is with the intent of helping my clients. I decided to put my oxygen mask on and take Karen’s Tools for Transformation (both level one and two) purely for my own healing. And I was NOT disappointed! Each class delved another layer deeper, and another layer deeper, leading up to the final class where we cleared patterns and energies going back and going forward seven generations. What a profound experience, knowing that I wasn’t just clearing things for myself, but for my past and future relatives too. There were so many powerful experiences and I love that Karen aims to keep it fun!" - Stephanie, Author & Speaker

"Awesome series!" - Gail, teacher

 

"Enlightening & Life Changing Experience.  I came to take Tools for Transformation through adult education.  I enjoyed it so much I then immediately signed up for Tools for Transformation 2 through her directly.  I was so excited to start this class as the description was full of so many interesting spiritual & healing modalities that I was interested in.  Karen is very knowledgeable, eloquent, inspiring and gifted teacher/mentor.  She really shared the core of everything we were learning so we could understand the history as well as it's uses.  She creates a comfortable and safe space for us all to share our journeys in an open and honest way.  I really feel we established a kind of sisterhood, making lifetime friends.  I highly recommend all the Tools for Transformation courses.  I will be taking level 3 as soon as it is offered." - Melanie, student

 

Organizing Clients​

I recently had the pleasure of working with Karen. I called her to help me organize my busy life that i felt was getting overwhelming. After our first conversation, i knew I chose the right person. Karen told me about what she did and how no two clients are ever really alike. That could have been the reason that when she listened to me tell my story, she was genuinely interested in understanding my needs and clearly present in the moment. That was very comforting to me. I was telling a stranger how i felt and sharing details about a part of my life that was not working well. That could have been an uncomfortable task, however Karen’s reaction was compassionate and supportive and put me at ease right away. In addition to her interpersonal skills, Karen is “no joke” when it comes to targeting the issue(s) at hand and offering extremely helpful and “do-able” advice on how to get things in your life organized and get you back on the track you want to be on. At the end of our last session, I can honestly say that I was inspired and confident. I had a great plan that I was going to be able to carry out successfully. I also knew that she would be available to me for any additional help or support what I may need. I highly recommend Karen Pierce to anyone interested in taking control of parts of their lives that cause them anxiety, frustration, and/or stress. Five stars all the way! Thank you Karen. ~ Danielle T.

 

​"I called Karen because I had too much stuff - at home and at work. My friends were skeptical and kept asking me why I needed help and that I could do it on my own. The truth is, I couldn't do it on my own.  She came in and got the job done! The work she did at my home and office have had a major influence on me and my office staff...clearing the stuff and creating systems that I can manage. I am very appreciative and thankful for everything she did...even recruiting her husband to help build a custom closet to accommodate my suits. If I didn't sincerely believe in Karen's services, I wouldn't be writing this letter of gratitude.  I highly recommend Karen's services and talents. I really should have done this earlier! Don't be like me and say you'll get around to it. Get it done now! You'll appreciate the benefits." - Paul Hirschauer, Senior Vice President of Mortgage Lending

 

Karen Pierce, the proprietor of Inner Spaces, a home and office organizing service, provides five star assistance for anyone looking to put their space in order. From the first contact, I was impressed with Karen’s professionalism, pricing, and attention to detail. In person, she shows warmth, sensitivity and a can-do attitude. Most impressive, she is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get to work alongside her clients. For those who might feel overwhelmed by clutter or the accumulation of what the late comedian, George Carlin, called “stuff,” she helps prepare an action plan for the way out. I recommend her enthusiastically and will continue to call upon her.  - Mark A. Hubble, Ph.D., Psychologist, Author and Editor, Professional Bass Player

 

"The good news is that our downstairs, kitchen, living room and dining room will make you SOOO proud. I can send you a couple of photos from my iPhone as I don't have pix downloaded on my computer.  Tim has even made some major strides into his space having had a friend help him with a music project - necessitating some clean up to accommodate the recording process. I am glad we've had this space to learn upkeep and its proof that I can follow through with maintenance."  - Kathy & Tim

 

"Karen is great! She's professional, reliable and non-judgmental. She rolls up her sleeves, pitches in and truly wants to help her clients find success in their organizational projects." - Laurie M, RN

 

"Sometimes people may think, why pay someone just to organize?  Because Karen is great at this.  She has a great intuition for space and organization and has studied it as well.  She knows how to listen to your input, explain what she's doing, and get the result.  Take it from me, this is money well spent.  As a realtor, I would say that most people selling their houses should hire a professional organizer.  I also liked your personality; it was very nice to deal with you.  I think we accomplished a lot and I think it's great that you gave me instructions how to finish." - Maria Cristina E., Realtor

"Karen understood my needs perfectly.  My home transformed and it feels good to come home to!  We find what we need, things are neat, and we aren't duplicating because we can't find items.  It's easy to maintain the order that was established because it all makes sense." - Michele M., M.D.

 

"Karen has a true talent for organizing. I would strongly encourage and recommend her for any type of organizing.  You will be amazed how much simpler day to day activities are after Karen has touched your life. Having an uncluttered environment leads to an uncluttered healthier life. Which allows more time to focus on the important things in life – family." - Sue M., Financial Analyst

 

“I needed to pack up my basement for a move and it was just too overwhelming.  I have many disabilities that prevented me from tackling such a huge job myself.  Karen came over and quickly assessed the best way to approach the project.  She was a whirl-wind as she cleared, sorted and  labeled everything.   I checked on her periodically so she could ask questions and double check whether to throw certain items out.    WOW!!!!   Karen is amazing.  Everything was boxed, labeled  stacked, and ready to be moved to our beautiful new home.  She even swept the floor." - Gerri S., Retired

 

"I have greatly benefitted from Karen’s outstanding organizational gifts.  She is a great role model in demonstrating simplicity and consistency in her home and her business.  Karen taught me ways to organize and simplify my administration, computer use, inventory, and class teaching in my own home-based business.  She has outstanding innate abilities in this area and a natural clarity in showing others how to focus on the important and put distractions aside.  I am in awe at how she organized my overflowing storage room.  I highly recommend her as a personal organizer.  She’s worth her weight in gold! " - Sue T., Teacher

 

"Every time I moved, I promised myself I would put the pictures in albums and write down the memories.  I’ve been saying that for 20 years.  Through Karen – that day has finally arrived.  It’s completely liberating and I highly recommend her to everyone who wants to organize their photos.  Karen’s system works like a charm!  The speed and the ease is magic.   It totally works!!!!  - Megan W.
