Trained in hatha-vinyasa (200hr) and hatha-yoga therapy (300hr,) Kara offers flow classes, classical hatha, and yoga therapy.  Teaching style revolves around alignment, joint safety, and mental intentions that mirror the physical postures.

This blog shares humble knowledge and benefits of yoga, inspirations, and sustainable lifestyle ideas. Personally, Kara is a dog lover, traveler, and fan of warm quiet beaches.

As a yoga teacher Kara has been teaching steadily since her first 200 hr training in 2013. She has taught beach yoga classes, studio classes, intermediate and advanced workshops, kids yoga/ESL kids yoga, and since her return to the U.S. has been teaching multiple corporate yoga classes.

As of December 2017, Kara has been working in her free time as a 5 Gyres Ambassador which pushes her to give talks on plastic pollution and our terribly bad plastic habit. Kara has combined her environmental and yoga passions by hosting a free Plogging & Yoga events, has given informational talks to school age students and adults, and looks forward to sharing the detriments of plastic pollution as well as simple solutions for the years to come.

  1. Hi kara. This is awesome. Though i dont actually have any plan to be a yoga teacher its still amazing site to look around for somebody who loves yoga!!thanks


  2. Hi Kara,
    I currently live in Seoul and still trying to find a good groove with yoga out here. I currently take a class where the teacher (a friend) focuses on Ashtanga – it’s good, but I need more. I moved from San Diego where healthy food, fitness, and yoga were plentiful and didn’t have to try too hard to find any of the above. I’m trying to find a good English speaking hot yoga and vinyasa class that doesn’t require me to travel for an hour. Do you have any suggestions in the Seoul area (I live near Namyeong). Appreciate it!


    • Hi Brigitte,

      Sorry for this late reply. Unfortunately, I do not know anything much about Seoul or yoga up there. If you get the chance though, I think you’d love Busan, coastal, active (somewhat, you can definitely meet expats cycling, acroing, suringf, etc.) and my friend Mindy (info above) teaches amazing classes at her studio there, all in English.

      Apologies for not being much help!
