Karen is a licensed massage therapist and registered yoga teacher who combines the fluidity of Swedish massage with the healing benefits of Deep Tissue techniques to leave every client feeling better than when they arrived.  

Karen completed her initial massage training in 2015 from Acadia School of Massage and has furthered her study through the following classes/workshops:

Annual Conference Maine: AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association)

Thai Massage Level 1 with ShivaShakti Yoga School, Union, Maine

Subtle Body training at Laughing Lotus Yoga Studio, Manhattan

Somatic Body Work at Maui School of Therapeutic Massage

 

YOGA:

Karen has practiced yoga for nearly 15 years and has been teaching since 2011.  Her initial 200 hour training was completed at Soul Tree Yoga Studio in Lafayette, Colorado but she has taken classes in every state she visits.  Through that travel, she has learned not only more about her personal practice but also her teaching practice.  She is thrilled to be working toward her 500 hour certification under the guidance and wisdom of Laughing Lotus Yoga Studio in Manhattan.  

Karen approaches yoga with the understanding that sh#@ happens and life can be hard.  But through the practices of massage, yoga, and mindful living, we can watch our default tendencies when things get sticky, observe the subtleties of our body and breath so that we can move toward living with greater ease at all times.

Guests can take private/small group classes with Karen or join her for public classes being taught at Destination Health, located in the Bayside Landing, in Bar Harbor.  Acadia Yurts guests receive a discounted drop in rate for Gentle Yoga!
