Kara has a passion for movement and anatomy. Her love of
movement began with dance and extended into teaching Pilates as an
apprentice at the age of 17. A few years later, she was the
youngest teacher to enter and complete the certification program
from the Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. Kara's love of
anatomy led to a certificate and career in diagnostic ultrasound
but after working in the field for several years she realized how
much she missed teaching movement. Kara came to yoga hoping to cope
with stress, but she left with so much more: a peace and a sense of
calm that she had never known before, as well as a physical
challenge that was different from her previous forms of movement.
After her first yoga class Kara knew she had to teach! There was no
way she was going to keep this secret to herself. She completed
Baptiste’s Level 1 teacher training program in 2012 and Tiffany
Cruikshank’s (Yoga Medicine) 200-hour program in February of 2014.
She is also certified and teaches Aerial Yoga Play and loves
spending time hanging upside down! She is currently working towards
her 500-hour certification with Jason Crandell. She enjoys studying
various styles of Yoga from international and local master
teachers. Combing love of movement and anatomical alignment, she
hopes to spark and inspire joy and playfulness through her
teaching. In addition to teaching, she is the owner and creator of
her own custom yoga wear company, Zebra Mama Yoga.
