Karen Abbott

Practicing and teaching yoga is Karen's time for presence and being open to what shows up. It happens without force or struggle. Gratitude, acceptance, light-heartedness naturally expands to that “no problem state.” This is what she likes to encourage in her students. She feels blessed to have the guidance of amazing teachers and lineages, ranging from Gentle Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yin, Restorative, Anusara, Bikram, and AcroYoga over the past 40 plus years. Her teaching blends these styles as needed. In addition, she offers private Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy and Interactive Guided Imagery sessions to connect with trust and inner wisdom.
