Karen C

Bio: I teach yoga because I believe in it’s ability to heal our minds and bodies after experiencing it for myself. Prior to trying yoga I had a regular fitness routine that included ballet dancing, Pilates, aerobic classes and light strength training. Even though I was active I found myself spending a lot of time visiting my massage therapist and chiropractor to repair imbalances in my physiology. I began looking for a more effective way to restore harmony in my body and tried my first yoga class at age 40. I started noticing improvements in my flexibility and functionality with yoga. Shortly after I began a regular yoga practice I had some difficult life events that really tested my emotional wellness too. I craved the peace that I found each time I went to yoga, and found it was helping my mind as much as my body. That grew into a real love for it and a spark to share my love with others by becoming a certified instructor.

I teach Hatha / Vinyasa yoga and Aerial Yoga. I love the lighthearted fun of the hammock classes and discovering new ways of using the hammock for strengthening, stretching, restoring and translating yoga poses in new dimensions.

 

Teaching Style: Encouraging, friendly, educational. I am very focused on teaching alignment and breath so my students find stability and space in their postures first, and then start exploring strength and depth of the pose.

 

3 things I would put in a time capsule: Lip gloss, yoga mat, cozy sweater & sweat pants

    Level: All levels
    Temperature: Room Temperature
    Description: A class to get acquainted with the aerial silk apparatus! Like a ‘first date’ with aerial yoga, students will be gradually taught how to use the silk hammock for expressing traditional yoga poses in unconventional new dimensions. Stretching techniques for shoulders, hips and hamstrings using the silk allows students to explore a deeper range of motion, connect to core stabilizing muscle groups. The aerial yoga teacher will teach students how to access inversions without any pressure on the head or neck while allowing decompression of the spine. Backbends such as half or full bow using full support of the silk are introduced. Experience Savasana in a completely new way, enveloped and safely supported by the silk hammock.

    Aerial yoga is safe for most students who can do inversions (no history of glaucoma, high blood pressure, stroke). Expectant mama’s are welcome to do aerial yoga with their doctor’s permission. It is recommended to wear a top that covers your underarms and long pants or leggings for both men & women.

The solid knowledge base learned from Level 1 carry over to this class and Level 2 students are encouraged to let go of newcomer energy and flow confidently in this class. Instructors sequence the asanas in more ornate and creative fashions to keep students improving and feeling challenged. Some instructors may choose to teach this class in a Vinyasa format where the poses and transitions from pose to pose are linked with a breath cue. Depending on the teacher, this class can be taught at a faster pace than the Level 1 class. Additionally, a broader range of asanas and breathing techniques are taught to increase flexibility, strength, and concentration. This class is practiced in a warm room and is appropriate for advanced beginner/intermediate students.
