Karen is a graduate of the Westchester Institute of Yoga, studied under Tao Porchon-Lynch and holds a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher Certification from Yoga Alliance.   She received a Master’s Degree in Public Health Education with a specialization in Health Education and Nutrition from Southern Connecticut State University.

Karen believes yoga can be a catalyst for a fulfilling life.  Yoga allows one to remove obstacles from their path.  The uncluttered path leads to dream realization.

After more than 10 years of suffering from chronic pain, Karen began practicing yoga, and now enjoys a nearly pain free life.  Specializing in yoga for pain relief, sports specific yoga, Iyengar and Vinyasa, she currently leads private sessions across America and group classes at Breaking Ground Dance Center in Pleasantville, Karen Young Yoga in Valhalla, Equinox Armonk, PFX in Pleasantville, Old Oaks Country Club, and Brae Burn Country Club.  She is the creator of ZenPump, Children: Natural Yogis Yoga Teachers Training, and Westchester’s Only Yoga for Golfers Series.  In 2015, her classes were named “One of Top Five Workouts in Westchester” by Westchester Family Magazine. 

“Yoga has transformed into me a person who feels great and is ready to partake in all of life’s possibilities.  I am excited to share what I’ve learned with you.”

Energy Bites

Energy bites

Here’s a recipe from Sue, a wonderful goddess I connected with through yoga.  Lots of healthy fats, omega 3s, and fiber in these packable dessert bites.  I was once asked how many calories were in these, to which I quickly responded “Who the hell cares?!”  Yes, they are that good!

1/3 cup honey

1/2 cup natural peanut butter (almond and cashew also work)

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1 cup old fashioned oats

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

In a large bowl mix everything but coconut together and shape into small balls.  Pour coconut in small bowl and roll balls in coconut.  Chill until firm.  Makes 25-30.


Less Sugar Variation (and no, its not nearly as good as Sue’s original recipe)

Follow above except reduce or eliminate honey.  Replace chocolate chips with raw cacao nibs.

To go variation with parchment circles between layers.
