About

As a yoga student since 1998, I have experienced the physical and mental benefits of my hatha yoga practice. I’m thrilled to be able to share my passion for yoga with my students (website: yogawithkaren.ca)

I offer group classes at KINESIOLOGISTS.CA Studio – Cloverdale. Specialized classes and private sessions can also be booked.

Yoga is about the journey. Through our yoga practice we can harmonize the body with the mind through our pranayama (breath), asana (poses), and stillness practice.
My training was completed with Grove Yoga School under the guidance of Lead Trainer, Gaylene Thoeny.

*Class Formats:

  • Gentle Hatha Stretch and Strength – Suitable for students both new to yoga and with an established practice

Gentle Hatha classes begin with a centring practice to calm the mind and a gentle warm up followed by strengthening poses designed to open, lengthen and stretch the body. We finish our practice with savansana or stillness  to integrate the practice.

  • Restorative – Suitable for all abilities 

Restorative classes use bolsters and blocks to allow for the ultimate in relaxation and opening. Poses are held for a longer period of time to allow for a deeper practice.

  • Dynamic – Suitable for students both new to yoga and with an established practice

Dynamic classes are designed with longer holds in our strength poses and flow based asanas/poses to bring heat and some cardio work to the practice.

BCRPA registration – recognized and/or transferable internationally?

Would you like to teach abroad or in another province?

BCRPA registration – recognized and/or transferable internationally?

Did you know that your BCRPA registration is recognized and transferable internationally through their affiliation with the National Fitness Leadership Alliance (NFLA) of Canada and the International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals (ICREPs)?

No other provincial fitness body offers this unique benefit. The NFLA develops and implements national standards for fitness professionals across Canada which BCRPA fitness leaders abide by. These standards are recognized internationally through ICREPS’s global partnership of 10 Confederation Member countries around the world.

BCRPA, its national NFLA affiliates and affiliated ICREPs members are all governed under the same standards for fitness registration and practice. This means that your BCRPA registration is not only recognized in BC, but is transferable across Canada and internationally.

For further information, have a look at the NFLA and ICREPs websites.
