“Karen Young Yoga helped me to feel better physically/mentally/emotionally. Karen cares about people and what they need. She has a great attitude and an uplifting personality. After her yoga, I feel like a million bucks, no matter how bad my day has been.”
“Karen has changed my life. With Karen I am safe, she is extremely knowledgeable about anatomy and personal safety. All levels are challenged. Karen is the best!”
“Karen has helped me breathe. Her spirit brings a quiet peace, reminding me to slow down and simply “be”. She will set you on a course of discovery and help you set aside the noise and bustle and tune into the silent peace inside all of us. It is a privilege if you have the opportunity to let her work with you. Namaste.”
“Its a thoughtful, gentle-yet-challenging class that makes me feel re-centered. Karen cares, she’s inspiring, and she gives you and hour that is meaningful and will make a difference in your day. People should know about the affordability of the classes, the sense of community and the naturally lit studio too.”
“I have been coming to yoga with Karen for 8 months. My formerly high blood pressure is now normal. I have been wearing orthodics in my shoes for the past 25 years, since Karen has showed me uddiyana bandha (upward abdominal lock) and helped me to position my hips properly, I no longer need them, wow! I can’t wait to go to class, I feel better than I have in a long time and I am really pleased with my new “yoga butt”!
“Karen has helped me feel happier, less stressed, more relaxed, and better at coping. The classes offers something for people at ALL levels with no intimidation. Open, warm and welcoming environment. Love it!”
“By regularly attending Karen’s classes, my body has experienced a renewed energy, a renewed strength, more flexibility, and better physical and mental energy. The environment is one of encouragement and support, friendly and relaxed, with no judgement or competition. Karen is an outstanding instructor, in touch with her students strengths and weaknesses, her cues are vital to my practice and her classes are both challenging and restorative and leave me feeling revitalized. Karen is both inviting to the newcomer and the experienced yoga student. Her instructions are laced with words of motivation. Her warm spirit and outspokenness are like a nurturing blanket as you advance through the practice. I have attended many yoga classes and Karen is one of the very best I have ever seen and I consider myself extremely lucky to have found her. She is a treasure in my life”
“I have now been practicing yoga for 2 yrs. My only regret was that I didn’t find it sooner in my life. I have practiced with several different instructors that were good and different styles of yoga but I feel Karen Young Yoga is amazing!!! It is a perfect mix of meditation, stretching, strengthening and flexibility. I love the studio where we practice (Breaking Ground Dance Center) and most of all Karen!!!!! She is a wonderful instructor. We are all made to feel comfortable…. young, old, woman or man and whatever level you are at in your yoga practice!! I look forward to it every week!!!!”
“Karen has such an awesome wealth of knowledge and is such a positive inspiration”
“Thank you so much. Since the second I met you, you have given me a more positive outlook. I can’t thank you enough.”
“Karen is a positive force. I can focus without feeling I cannot do this/that. People should know that whatever their abilities, they can do yoga. Class is held in a nice facility (Breaking Ground) with great instruction.”
“I feel taller every time I complete a class. Karen encourages me to find my limits and reach beyond them. Karen is very positive and individualizes her instruction so all can get the most out of her class. I have recommended Karen Young Yoga because it is a great class for beginners and advanced levels. “
“Karen Young Yoga has helped me feel stronger, allowing me to become centered and grounded. Karen is incredibly enthusiastic, making me believe that I, one day, can do all the poses. Karen is approachable, never boring, and really lives the lifestyle she promotes. I’ve done yoga with other instructors, but Karen really “walks the walk”.
“Karen Young Yoga has helped me in many ways: I am more relaxed, better centered, and less stressed. Karen is great, she is a joy to have as a teacher, and is an inspiration and motivator. She is low key, friendly, un-intimidating, fun and social. The most important is how good I feel. : ) I would absolutely recommend her class to others.”
“Karen is a very inspiring yoga teacher. She pushes me enough so I see improvement in my flexibility. I always feel great after her class!”
“Karen has helped me physically and mentally. With each class she allows me the chance to slow down, forgive myself, and conjure up the strength that I sometimes forget I possess. I love the informal ease of the class. The music she plays is relaxing, inspiring and allows my mind to release. Karen has a calm and positive energy. She always encourages but never pressures. I would recommend Karen’s class to anyone who wants to embark on a physical journey to open up the body and strengthen physically and mentally. Often we forget the importance of relaxation and the benefits it can provide. After and hour with Karen, because I am relaxed, my mind is clearer. I am more aware of myself and I go on to have a highly productive and deeply rewarding day!”
“Karen Young Yoga has helped me with understandable guidance, awareness and assurance. I like Karen’s humor, knowledge and patience. I would recommend this class because everybody needs to breathe and stretch, without that you can’t move.”
“Karen’s yoga has provided me with a sense of calm and balance while strengthening my body. I like releasing energy in a safe and open place. I like that Karen allows/encourages each person to take things at their own pace. There is no sense of competition or right or wrong, just calmness. Karen is warm, calming and full or energy and lightness. I would definitely recommend this class to others, I look forward to the class every week. I even find myself “lengthening” at work.
“Karen’s yoga has helped me to relax and concentrate on the moment. Her class is very relaxing and non competitive. Anyone can do yoga with Karen no matter how flexible you may or may not be”.
“Karen Young Yoga has helped me to relax, it is the only night I sleep and can sleep through the night. Poses are modified to meet all levels. Karen is upbeat, patient and has a positive aura.”
