E-RYT 200, RYT 500, HYT ™, YACEP

Kari grew up in a multicultural life as part of a non-traditional, ocean sailing family. From a young age she was immersed in the different ways that people around the world moved and lived in their natural environment. 

This interest has taken many paths, but the favorite and never-ending love affair has been yoga! She loves the transformational qualities that yoga offers and its ability to meet us where we are. Her classes are sequenced in a balanced way that naturally moves your body into a deeper place by the end of the session. She teaches all levels and ages, so each class is unique.

Kari trained 300 hours in Anusara Yoga with Jonas Westring and also holds two 500-hour teaching certificates, one in Holistic Yoga Therapy ™ with Annie Adamson. Her certifications include Primal Vinyasa ™  primalvinyasayoga.com  Restorative Yoga and Senior Yoga from Duke University’s Integrated School. She is a practicing Holistic Yoga Therapist ™, and is grateful to all of her teachers and students for guiding her into the depths that yoga has to offer.

One of her true loves is to bring yoga to people who cannot get to a class, and has taught in a variety of settings from hospitals to addiction centers. She works to keep a beginner’s mind and has a never-ending curiosity for all the paths that yoga takes her on. A path she currently  is creating a yoga festival in Sitka, Alaska with a quest for bringing new teachers and education to her island. wildalaskayoga.com   She teaches a scheduled class and offers pop up classes at yogaunionsitka.org, a longtime cooperative studio in Sitka, Alaska.
