Karma Yoga

Katherine Austin, E-R.Y.T. and founder of Karma Yoga, Inc., is a dedicated student of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Kundalini Yoga. As a regular teacher and workshop presenter, she guides her students with a unique blend of strength, detail and compassion, drawn from her own personal practice – both on and off – the mat. She opened the studio with the intent of having the student experience what yoga really is: The union (yoga means ‘to yoke’) of the individual self with the infinite self. With so much stress and illusionary fear ruling the planet, she hopes to help others unfold, let go and remember the love and light within, and to stop allowing external drama and trauma to run them. Classes offered at Karma Yoga include: prenatal yoga, yoga therapy, chair yoga, restorative yoga, spirit baby yoga and more. Register online and the first class is free.
