Karen Poppele

I tried my first yoga class at the encouragement of my daughter, and after just a couple of classes, realized how incredibly powerful it is. Beyond the benefits of the physicality of the asanas, yoga has provided me with an acceptance of myself and where I am right now in life, as well as a clarity of mind and spirit and a restored sense of creativity. I quickly realized that I wanted to learn more and to share the benefits of yoga with others. I completed my 200-hour power vinyasa teacher training with Tamal Dodge of Tamal Yoga in 2013 as well as workshops and continuing education in Prenatal Yoga with Ashley Keith, Trauma Sensitive Yoga with David Emerson of the Trauma Center, and Yoga for Healthy Aging with Baxter Bell, M.D. I am registered with the Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 200, YACEP.

I hope to bring to each practice and share a love of alignment along with a sense of play and exploration and a desire to make yoga truly accessible to all, encouraging progression at one’s individual pace and level to attain the increased physical, mental, and spiritual well-being a practice can offer. My special interests for continued exploration include the use of yoga/meditation for mental wellness, seniors, children — practitioners of all ages, sizes, and abilities. Yoga is for everyone, and I am excited and grateful to have the opportunity to lead classes in such a safe and welcoming space.
