Karyn cultivates a genuine and welcoming atmosphere where students are encouraged to feel safe, curious, and empowered. Trained as an opera singer, her soothing voice calms your mind and invites you to inhabit the present moment. A teacher of restorative, yin, vinyasa, aerial yoga, yoga nidra, and meditation, Karyn truly believes there is a yoga practice for everyone. The seeds of Karyn’s yoga journey were planted in New York City in the 1990s when she took a class at her local gym and was immediately hooked. Karyn found yoga to be an antidote to the stresses of her singing career, though it was during her first pregnancy that she fully realized the transformative power of yoga—not just as a stress reliever, but as a tool for navigating life’s challenges. Karyn holds a 200-hour certification from Blue Lotus in Raleigh and has completed additional training through Duke Integrative Medicine, Asheville Yoga Center, The Therapeutic Yoga Training Program, and YOGABODY. She is the proud mom of three amazing humans.
