Instructor: Karen’s yoga journey began as she searched for relief from workplace stress and from the demands of being a corporate banker. After her first yoga class, she was immediately captivated by the mind-body connection, the calming effect she felt on her nervous system, and the ability to use the breath to reduce anxiety, influence emotion, and remain present. She quickly realized what a powerful and profound practice she had found, and she is honored to share the benefits of this ancient practice through teaching others. Karen’s classes fully encourage and support each yogi’s personal journey, inward focus, and exploration of the mind-body connection in a nurturing and safe environment that is welcoming to students of all-levels.
Instructor: Jody (E-RTY200, RTY500) began her yoga journey looking to resolve pain from many years of running. After her first yoga class, she immediately connected to the physical, emotional, and spiritual healing that yoga brings. She has completed her therapeutically-oriented RYT500 training and is dedicated to helping others find a yoga practice that meets them where they are right now, celebrating what they can do regardless of their physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges. Jody volunteers at the Shepherd Spinal Center and is also a Reiki Practitioner.
Instructor: Lola has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years when as a teen, her mom dropped her off at the YMCA for yoga classes. Yoga has been a constant in her life, helping her manage corporate stress and long hours at a desk. Lola is fascinated with the body and its ability to heal and move, and enjoys adapting yoga practices to accommodate the body’s changes. She enjoys spending time with her family, working at a local public library, regularly walking the Roswell and Alpharetta Greenway, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Lola completed her RYT 200 at the Open Mind Center and loves sharing yoga with others to help them relax and reset, ready to face a new day.
