Karen is a certified Health Coach, ERYT500 Yoga Instructor and if you were to ask the people in her life, a good friend. She is as inspired as she is inspiring and always looking for what brings us "up" and recognizes the appropriateness of downtime. A true introverted extrovert. You can catch her teaching classes around town or hire her for private sessions, come as you are and know that you are working with someone who believes you are meant to shine.
..." I wanted to say that the class was so inspiring! I feel like I want to do yoga for the rest of my life! In the first week after the class ended, my wife, (who was also in the class), and I did three, level one classes. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me, especially as my wife never thought she would like yoga and is now as inspired as I am!
You prepared us very well for level one, and I’m so excited that we both get to improve our bodies and minds together! You are really changing lives with your practice for which I thank you! Your approach was very encouraging, not the the least bit intimidating and felt very inclusive of all abilities. I even found a the chime of the gong at the end of each class that I had a rush of deep emotions, which I imagine must be buried somewhere in my brain. I really struggle to fully let go and I think yoga will really help with this!"

I first met Karen Gamble when she was co- leading a yoga retreat in Sayulita, Mexico. I was recovering from a broken humerus and recently cleared to return to yoga. I was a bit nervous :)
Karen was supportive, helpful, encouraging and checked in with me often to see how my body was feeling. I enjoyed her teaching style, personality and presence so much that upon returning from retreat, began to attend her classes regularly. Karen is a talented teacher. She encourages participants to listen to their bodies and not compare themselves to others abilities. I appreciate her ability to both encourage and challenge me in my practice. I leave her classes feeling stronger, more self aware and present both to myself and others. Her mantra of ‘love, love, love’ follows me into my daily activities.
Karen is a warm, thoughtful and knowledgable yoga teacher. She creates a very welcoming atmosphere and has a sincere way of making everyone in the class feel special; and that is truly a gift! She brings insight, humility and integrity into her classes and is very encouraging and supportive. Karen gracefully leads us into a powerful integration and alignment of mind, body and spirit. She has a way of clearly explaining postures and flow between movements that can really help students, especially those who are new to yoga, understand body mechanics and how to work within your own unique limits and abilities to get the most out of your practice. I always look forward to Karen’s classes and leave feeling enlightened and inspired.
