“I had the great chance of taking the 200 hour teacher training program with Karen this past fall and I have to say that it was truly a transformative experience! I didn’t know what to expect, but living in a western culture, I wasn’t prepared for anything of that magnitude!
Karen’s class did not solely touch on but thoroughly explained the technicality of the asanas, breathing, meditation (the tools), but also engaged us into a more spiritual approach on yoga and life, in general, igniting a thirst for a deeper inquiry and search into our own being and presence here, a broader view and understanding.
It is quite the task to try and find a true Teacher- a Guru, if you will-but I was fortunate to find the right one, right here in Vail!” — Tamara Mesaros, 2015 graduate
“Self-reflective, empowering, and insightful are three words I would use to describe Karen’s training. Karen is very knowledgeable, intelligent, and is deeply passionate about sharing her experiences and expertise with others. Her genuine nature to help gave us all a profound knowledge of how to reflect and embody the yoga lifestyle in our own lives, and then be able to share it with others. The small, intimate group was ideal for learning and better understanding the body and practice of yoga.” — Julie Wilson, 2016 graduate
“Karen’s teacher training did so much more for me than teach me yoga. It kept me happy and healthy during a very tough time in my life as well as happy and healthy in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Karen’s style of approaching yoga and life has certainly changed and inspired mine.” — Liv Fagerholm, 2014 graduate
“I took Karen’s yoga teacher training class in the fall of 2014. I would take the class 10 times over if I had the time. Karen taught me more than yoga poses, and alignment. I went home learning to face my authentic self and be honest about my journey and personal life. You will take home with you more than what you envisioned and exactly what you, personally need in your life. I couldn’t be more thankful for Karen, the class she taught, and the people I was able to learn with. ” — Chanelle Fleury, 2014 graduate
“Karen is a wonderful person and an incredible teacher. Her knowledge is vast, and I feel fortunate to benefit from her decades of experience. Whether we took the teacher training for professional goals or to deepen our personal practice, I think we were all enriched by the experience. ” — Kat Jahnigen, 2015 graduate
“Taking Karen’s teacher training was a great time for me. The timing was convenient for my schedule, which made it easy to spend the time deepening my practice. Going into the training I was not planning on actually leading classes, but to understand what I was spending my time doing. Karen did a great job with tying together the pieces of yoga in a non-judgmental way. She presented the material allowing us to make decisions on what we wanted to think. The importance of keeping people safe and all the physical aspects were well presented. Karen’s knowledge is deep and her fellow presenters did a great job. I recommend the class as great use of your time.” —Geordy Ogden, 2013 graduate
“Karen Anderson’s 200 hour CYT Course can be the beginning of your amazing journey too! I wanted to expand my yogic knowledge, deepen my practice and learn more about the history of Yoga in order to derive more “meaning” to this path I am on. I was hungry for more substance to bring to my mat as an Instructor and Karen is able to impart her knowledge in a patient, informative, easy to digest manner. I found she is able to disseminate a great deal of information in an organized, instructive, yet engaging way. Her program gave me a thirst to want to learn even more! She brought in fascinating Guest Speakers which added another dimension to our training. She always made time for Q & A sessions which is vital to a new student’s ability to learn & retain that information. And I feel she gave us all the necessary tools to become better students and amazing instructors as well!” — Jodie Oleson, 2014 graduate
