School Yoga Project Teacher
Karen is very excited and grateful to be joining Little Flower Yoga and teaching yoga and mindfulness in schools. Karen had an eighteen-year career as a professional dancer touring nationally and internationally with modern dance companies and musical productions. In addition to performing, she was a dance teaching artist in public schools throughout New York City and Los Angeles. Karen was a founding creative team member of A Broader Way and the Dominican Dream/Mixed Me Project. Karen is a graduate of the Aspire Teacher Residency, a rigorous one-year program in which she earned her M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction and multiple subject teaching credential. Karen was a classroom teacher for five years, teaching kindergarten and pre-kindergarten. She holds her 200-hour yoga teacher certification from Laughing Lotus. Karen’s intention as a teacher is for every child to feel seen, heard, understood, and empowered through the practice of yoga and mindfulness.
