Sage Studio offers Private Yoga sessions. These classes, which are either one-on-one or semi-private (up to 3 students), are custom designed for the particular students. This is a perfect option for someone who is brand new to yoga and wants to learn the basics before taking a regular class. Those with an injury may also find the Private Yoga session a beneficial option, as Karen is certified to teach therapeutic yoga.

By practicing yoga, Karen has learned to listen and cultivate self-compassion. “It’s a rough world out there,” she says, “and if self-compassion doesn’t start within, you can’t really extend it.” She now finds it a blessing to teach people to come into their own bodies. There are also several physical benefits of practicing yoga including increases in strength and flexibility.
