Karen Batchelder is a graduate of YogaLife Institute's 200-hour and 500-hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training programs and the Level 1 Comprehensive Yoga Therapy Training. She is also certified in the Usui System Reiki tradition. Karen began her yoga journey in 1998 as a method to alleviate anxiety. She discovered that yoga provided not only stress relief, but a series of tools and life lessons that help with anxiety and so much more.
"I aspire to help others seeking relief from stress and anxiety by integrating these wonderful tools and personal discoveries into my gentle yoga classes where relaxation is a focal point. My intention is to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all levels of ability, ages, and body types."
"Yoga therapy is a personalized approach to health and wellness that helps clients understand and transform their stress and anxiety. Yoga Therapy sessions utilize yoga philosophy and its practices, including conversation, gentle yoga postures, breath and relaxation to help restore health and peace of mind."
Karen is the graphic designer, website administrator, and marketing coordinator for Julie Rost Yoga.
