About us

Karen began practicing yoga in 2004 as a way to integrate a healthy balance of movement and stillness into her life. Today, she delivers this balance to her students through studio classes, global yoga retreats, private lessons, and corporate yoga classes. Her vinyasa training was at Kula Yoga Project in New York City under the direction of Nikki Vilella, and she was certified by San Francisco's Judith Hanson Lasater as a Relax and Renew© restorative yoga teacher. Karen weaves energy, fluidity, play, stillness, and tons of hands-on assists into her teaching, and blends a strong, internal metronome with the precision and alignment of Iyengar foundations.

Around the world, global yoga retreats with Karen, founder of Third Eye Retreats®, give you the freedom to explore, make lifelong connections, escape from your patterns and habits, and experience your practice in new ways. Karen's yoga retreats are truly one-of-a-kind events. You and your yoga mat deserve a little time away from home and the studio!

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
