Karen completed her Yoga teacher training at It’s Yoga in San Francisco in 2001. After teaching at Stanford University and the Palo Alto YMCA, Karen returned to her native South Florida . After teaching solo for one year in Fort Lauderdale, Karen opened Inspire Yoga in 2002( changing the name to Red Pearl in 2004).Trained in Classical Ballet for 12 years, Karen brings alignment, detail, balance and playfulness to her teaching. She has a Fine Arts/Photography Degree from the University of South Florida and has been a Visual Stylist for Neiman Marcus since 1993. She was a competitive skateboarder and was inducted into The Florida Skateboard Hall of Fame in 2011. After a teaching hiatus, and an experiment with Thousand Pound Egg, a lifestyle/gourmet retail shop, we are thrilled to say that she is back on our regular schedule!
Three of the many things we love about Karen are: Integrity, Detail, and Love of Great Food.
note: Karen was voted “best Yoga Instructor by City Link Magazine in 2007” and the studio has received yearly local recognition for its other classes and teachers since 2005
