Kara Schrinner, RYT-200
After years of practicing the postures of yoga at home, Kara thought that she was “good enough” to show up to a real class. Spreading her mat out, she worried that she may forget how to do something, how a pose should look, or that she would look stupid trying. Fifty minutes later, exhausted and sweaty, she realized that this practice had something else to offer, something that couldn’t be found in a perfect “dancer” or “crow” pose. Having struggled with anxiety for years, she noticed that she left the studio feeling somehow different. Not sure exactly what happened or how, she knew she needed to go back and figure this thing called “yoga” out.
Fast forward many years and many classes, and Kara still hasn’t figured it all out, but through this journey she has found that space between each breath, and the space between each thought, and has discovered how to use yoga to deal with life. And she wants to help you to figure out how to use this practice off your mat! Kara enjoys teaching a range of styles including Restorative, Yin (Deep Stretch), Meditation, Prenatal, and a Slow Flow version of a traditional vinyasa, in addition to workshop on Essential Oils, Mind-Body Connection, and the use of therapy balls for muscle release.
Off the mat, Kara spends time at the ice rink with frozen toes as she watching her daughter practice spins and twirls (a talent that the little girly clearly did not get from her mother). Kara spends a lot of time volunteering in dog rescue as a founding member of a local rescue group. As you will experience in her classes, Kara loves using essential oils to enhance the practice. She has been an essential oil educator and health coach since 2013.
