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.”

Superfly Chai Tea

FullSizeRender I’m so addicted to this tricked out tea!  It’s full of health promoting spices and perfect for early falls’s fluctuating temperatures since it’s equally awesome hot or iced.

6 cups water

2 cinnamon sticks

6 cardamom pods

4-5 whole cloves

1-2 tablespoons fennel seeds (naturally sweet)

3 yerba mate, green or black tea bags

Optional: thinly sliced fresh ginger, milk (coconut milk is my fave), sweetener

Place water, spices and ginger (if using) in a pot and bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Add tea bags and steep for 5-10 minutes.  Strain and serve with optional sweetener and milk.

You can get these ingredients at a health food or international grocery store.  Locals: I get mine at Bhavik Grocery 130 East Main Street, Elmsford.
