Mindfulness Educator

Stress is inevitable and sometimes even helpful, but living in chronic stress can take a toll on the body and mind. It can result in low mood, anxiety, insomnia, a decreased capacity to learn, high blood pressure and a host of other physical and mental conditions.

A growing body of evidence supports the use of mind-body interventions as an effective way to not only cope with the stresses of life, but actually flourish. It isn't necessary to eliminate stress because it is possible to learn how to befriend it.

Karen Schwisow, RYT500

Karen has been building a foundation of mindfulness in her own life since the early 90s. Her discovery of yoga a decade later felt like finding a short-cut to a quieter mind, calmer heart and revitalized body. She has been teaching yoga and meditation to individuals and groups since 2005 and facilitating 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction courses since 2011. She continues to learn and deepen her understanding of these ancient wisdom traditions and how they are relevant to our lives today and recently completed her Therapeutic Yoga training through Subtle Yoga.
Through compassionate listening, breath practices, yoga, mindfulness and humor she empowers you to experience your own innate ability to thrive.
