I am grateful for my challenges and count them among my greatest teachers. Curiosity, and a deep desire for holistic wellness, inspire me to teach intentional yoga with space to explore deeper physical asana , breath pranayama and mindfulness practices as we journey personally and collectively toward self-awareness and re-membering our wholeness. I have been teaching yoga since , and received my training at White Lotus Foundation Santa Barbara in , one of the first Yoga Teacher Training programs in the country.
I carry the belief that our bodies, minds, emotions and spirits are essentially connected and that everything inside and outside of us is related to our well-being.
This is why I also work as a Natural Health Coach. I honor the clients I work with, guiding them toward nutrition and lifestyle choices that support their health goals using yoga, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Traditional Foods, which is often easier than one might expect. If you would like more information, please connect with me.
I am excited to share the joy of living a connected life with others as a Yoga Instructor, Health Coacher and Life Lover.
9 Ways Psychotherapy Can Help You
I grew up in a very large, very close family. The oldest of four siblings and one of over 30 cousins, I was surrounded by family and community. As a child, I was extremely shy and dealt with a lot of anxiety.
Thus, I understand the pressures kids face, both self-imposed and otherwise. I see yoga as a beautiful song and dance between breath, movement and meditation and have personally experienced the power of yoga in working toward a more balanced and joyful life. I strongly believe that children, especially, can use these helpful tools to gain a sense of emotional awareness and to better control their reactions. It seems to powerfully connect children with their inner being, thereby better connecting them to their own thoughts and feelings and the world around them.
I currently work as a juvenile advocacy attorney and restorative facilitator in public schools around the Twin Cities. I am inspired by the strength, resiliency, creativity and honesty of children and youth. I also teach adult yoga classes and believe that, through the power of breath and movement, we can better realize our deep interconnectedness, resulting in the ability to change the world for the better! I have taught group fitness since age 16 and have held a fascination of the human body for as long as I can remember. This led to becoming a physical therapist in and a yoga teacher in after studying with Yoga North in Duluth.
I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, service, justice, wonder, and being in right relationship with the earth. I practice mindfulness and bring this lens to my classes. The Yamas and Niyamas, ethical yoga principles, are constant teachers. My intent in teaching is to provide an invitation and container for students to explore the landscape of sensation, movement, and feeling to bring deeper awareness of who they truly are and how to tend to themselves from moment to moment. I am grateful to all my teachers, students, community, and Yoga Sanctuary. As a nerdy, uncoordinated kid, I started noticing that yoga helped me feel more confident and at home in my body.

Those years were full of growth and exciting opportunities, but they were also full of doubt, fear, and uncertainty -- my yoga practice was an anchor that helped me feel grounded through it all. Yoga was a safe place for me to reconnect my mind with my body and heart the latter two of which can fall to the wayside during medical training. As a yoga teacher, I strive to help students tune in to awareness in class -- that calm, still, peaceful space within each of us that is always present but sometimes gets lost in the noise of our everyday lives.
I see yoga as a place for self-healing, wholeness and starting again.

Cloud State University. After my daughter was born, I was eager to replace work-stress with Mom-stress, but found yoga—especially with Shelley Pagitt—to be a more necessary solace than before, to unwind the ropes of new responsibility and identity. I began teaching Shape Shifters to preschoolers at Yoga Sanctuary—a truly fun but also good-for-you class, combining the best elements of all my movement passions. After 20 years of teaching kids in the dance and gymnastics world, I love sharing yoga with them—movement that teaches them strength, discipline, and body awareness, but also gives them tools they need for self-love, emotional intelligence and stress-reduction.
As a teacher, I love to help people find tools to feel better—through breathing techniques, tapping into our own wisdom, smart alignment, and just changing our perspectives. The community and energy at Yoga Sanctuary are saturated with kindness and I love being part of it! From I lived in Asia and had the wonderful opportunity to learn and train with international teachers in the styles of Prana Vinyasa, Drishti Vinyasa and Yin yoga.
Throughout my career as an elementary teacher I was blessed to have found yoga for emotional balance, spiritual growth and inner silence. When I attended my first yoga class 9 years ago, I knew this needed to be a life-long practice for me.
From I took a one year sabbatical in India and Nepal to deepen my knowledge of yoga as well as becoming certified in Thai massage. I am thrilled to be a part of the Yoga Sanctuary community to share this transformative, self-healing lifestyle with others. Karen Youso has been teaching movement and exercise most of her life.
