COMMUNITY STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

 

CSS is an opportunity for us to celebrate the amazing humans in our beautiful community and their journey with yoga.

 

We are very excited to share with you our newest Spotlight feature; Karen Palmer. 

Join us in celebrating Karen! She's been a student with us since January of 2021, taking 241 classes, that is amazing! From the beginning of her yoga journey, she's been open to exploring, always up for trying a new style of class or a new teacher. 

She's always shows up with her bright smile, kindness and humor. She's made many new friends around the studio with her welcoming disposition. It's a joy to have Karen in our community and to watch her grow in her journey of self-care.

            

What does HARVEST mean to you?                                                       

"Peace. Comfort. Contentment. Warmth. Positivity."

 

How did you start your yoga journey?

"Many, many moons ago! Did not like it! Felt it wasn’t good because not moving / sweating / breathing hard. Tried it again years later and did like it, only to have the studio close. Again, years later got invited by a very good friend; Terri to HARVEST and here I am almost 2 years in."

 

What does yoga mean to you?

"Yes, it’s a physical thing, but I realized after I missed almost a month, that for me, it is just as much as a mental thing. A good mental thing."

 

How do you fit yoga into your everyday life?

"Breathing, if I can’t make it to the studio, I concentrate on breathing."

 

What advice would you share with yogis just starting out?

"Try it all!!! You can’t go wrong with any of the instructors. Don’t be afraid to no do a pose."

 

If you were a yoga pose, which one would you be?

"Definitely not dancer! Probably bridge pose."

 

What is something interesting about yourself you would like to share with everyone?

"Never have I ever ridden a horse."
