In her classes, Karen focuses on a holistic approach to yoga, incorporating asana, embodied movement, relaxation, pranayama, and meditation. She encourages her students to listen to their bodies and become acquainted with its subtle cues to enabling them to find the shapes that work best for them, rather than striving for perfection in poses.
