"If you can breathe, you can do Yoga" – Krishnamacharya
Karen was drawn to Yoga over 15 years ago seeking healing after experiencing a life-threatening illness. She immediately realized the deep connection that yoga nurtures between our physical bodies and the essence of our spiritual and emotional well-being.
Seeking to try many styles of yoga led Karen to practice at retreats in Costa Rica and Bali, completing her 200 Hour Inspired Yoga Teacher Training in 2018. Her goal is to provide students a compassionate and joyful environment to feel their way into gentle postures connecting with the body and breath and to come away with a sense of CALM!
Karen's classes are Wednesday and Fridays at noon.
Using her knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and combining her gift of therapeutic touch, each client experiences an incredibly unique and personalized treatment session.
Understanding that healing starts from within, Kaz also teaches monthly guided meditation classes. Each script is hand written, with a strong focus on emotional clearing and realignment.
Most recently, Kaz has obtained a Bachelors degree in Metaphysical Science, certification in Hypnosis and Regression Therapy, and additional schooling in Understanding Human Emotions. Each new certification adding to her tool kit of emotional and mental health therapies. These new additions complete the circle of Mind, Body, and Soul healing.
I suffered an injury at work resulting in a loss of mobility to my right arm and shoulder. Since receiving treatments from Kaz, I have full use of my arm again and no longer require medication to manage my pain. I highly recommend Kaz.

I suffered from chronic upper back and neck pain for years. I began seeing Kaz for treatments and not only did she relieve my pain, she taught me stretches and exercises that have allowed me to be pain free for the first time in years. I am so grateful to Kaz and highly recommend her.

It had been a long time since I had a massage because I had a bad experience with one a long time ago where the Therapist did it way to hard and it just about killed me but I was in pretty bad shape with my shoulders and neck so I decided to book with Kaz. She was amazing! I felt way way better it was just the right amount of pressure and I even slept better at night! She even went the extra mile and showed me a bunch of exercises to do in between visits to help my progression. Don't hesitate to book with her it is the best move you'll make, she really has renewed my faith in RMT's.
