Karen is born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario - a mom to two teenage boys and a little furry girl. After 15 years working in the corporate sector, Karen discovered her true passion and calling - mindful movement and wellness.  She was introduced to movement through yoga, which she started as a way to decompress from her stressful corporate life.  Soon after starting a regular yoga practice, she decided to purse her yoga teaching certification, wanting nothing more than to understand the deeper tenets of the practice.  Little did she know she had opened a Pandora's box of what has since become her life-long learning journey into the world of movement and wellness.

Karen is a movement and mindfulness educator and coach whose mission is to support women to create strong bodies that they love through mindful movement and self-compassion.  She supports her clients in building strength, and increasing mobility and stability  so that they can feel confident, strong and healthy.  Karen is a certified Level 2 Fascial Stretch Therapist™(FST™), Yoga and Integrated Movement Teacher, and soon to be certified in Thai Yoga Massage (May 2019).

"Nothing brings me more joy than to see my clients faces light up when they suddenly realize they are no longer in pain".
