The way she ‘builds’ a class is inspired. We start with movements that are deceptively simple and physically easy. Through these stretching movements one begins to have a sense of one’s body awakening from within. By the time we have moved on to more challenging poses I am ready. Karen is totally dialed in to the people in her classroom. That I can look up and see her smile, fairly predictably all the time, reminds me of how much my inner reality can be influenced by smiling back!
