To truly teach from your love of yoga and share your enthusiasm with your students — they will leave your classes renewed and empowered.
Expect to have an in-depth personal yoga experience at the training. The week will be a full immersion into yoga, giving you opportunities for personal growth and transformation. Each day will consist of meditation, strong asana, workshops, and group discussions. We will explore a multitude of techniques and skills to assist you in igniting your power within.
The training will provide you a platform to share with us what YOU love about teaching yoga. Through journaling and discussion, you will discover new ways of sharing your love of yoga to others. It will give you the space to flourish in your uniqueness as a person and a yoga teacher. By working within the framework of power vinyasa yoga, your individual teaching approach will evolve, spark, and inspire!

As you connect with nature in this beautiful place, you’ll stretch yourself as a yoga teacher and person. Expect to ask more of yourself than you ever have before. During the week we will discuss and practice the skills and state of being necessary to teach a powerful yoga class:
If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living. As teachers, it’s our responsibility to keep growing. Get ready to create change. After this week, your yoga classes will never be the same!
Karen has always been inspired to help people reach their full potential and face their challenges with courage and integrity. After graduating from Fordham University, she began her teaching career in the public school systems where she later went on to work with high-risk teenagers putting them through challenging situations in the rugged outdoors of Canada where they were able to reach their highest potential.
Karen infuses her joyful, high-energy classes with her belief that we can best serve others and heal ourselves through this dynamic and transforming yoga practice. Karen is a highly experienced teacher and and has led workshops and teacher trainings for over 20 years around the world. Karen was inspired to teach power vinyasa from her first teacher, Baron Baptiste. She has trained extensively with Baron and is a Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher and is an Accredited Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainer.
She has devoted her life to assisting her students along their yoga journey. “Yoga for me is a practice that insists that I continue to take a closer look at how I can create change and balance in my life. I use that as a platform to inspire others to really invest in their own lives and to get passionate about themselves and all they have to offer.”
Sean has been teaching yoga for over 16 years and first discovered it after a four-year stint in the NFL after he suffered an injury. Sean began practicing power flow yoga due to back and hip injuries caused from overuse and overtraining. He has found yoga to be healing in many ways and not just physical. “The mental peace that yoga offered was unexpected, but it was the driver to continue and eventually take up teaching.” Sean began his training with Karen in their living room, then took up more formal trainings with multiple teachers, including Baron Baptiste and other talented vinyasa yoga teachers. Sean is an Accredited Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainer.
He is the co-author of the best-selling yoga book, “Amazing Yoga: A Practical Guide to Strength, Wellness, and Spirit,” and is also the soon to be released book, “The Kicker." Sean has taught to thousands of students at their studios, including doing specialized yoga work with the Pittsburgh Steelers. For over 14 years Sean has been supporting students to tap into their internal wisdom and to let go of everything that does not serve them. He feels that, “With this new found space we can open our hearts and minds to opportunities of service and love.”
