Karen Lee

Yoga is the experience of being in this moment, right now, fully inhabiting this body-mind, creating a state of clarity from which we can act with authenticity, or at least have a moment before impulsive reactions set in. Cultivating presence we relax about getting it or not getting it and surrender to the moment as it is.

 

As owner of Breathing Time Yoga, Karen is dedicated to creating a community and space for healing through yoga. Karen is an educator, teaching the students what they need to know to practice and how to match the practices to their unique needs and interests.

 

Karen has been studying Viniyoga since 1994 with Gary Kraftsow of the American Viniyoga Institute (AVI). She is an AVI Yoga Teacher (500-hr) and AVI Certified Yoga Therapist. Karen also holds an MAT from RISD.

  • Community Yoga by Donation
  • Community Yoga by donation is a low-cost class, making yoga accessible to everyone! Come join us. The suggested donation is $5 to $15 or what you can afford. No one turned away. Half of the proceeds from the class go to our Financial Aid Fund and support our low-income students and Seva volunteers in the Breathing Time Yoga Community.

    Community Yoga classes are of at a variety levels depending on the teacher's preference and the students who come. All students are welcome in these classes.


  • Viniyoga: Beginners
  • Viniyoga: Beginners yoga is designed to take the stress out of yoga by laying the foundation for a strong and confident yoga practice. Welcome to yoga! Beginners yoga is rich with instruction and demonstration, is deliberately paced and will help you learn the basics. This class welcomes all students who are relatively new to yoga practice or simply wish to focus on the basics.
     
    The Viniyoga method of yoga is based on the deep relationship between breath and movement, experiencing yoga from the inside out and providing a sound approach to practicing yoga postures (asana). The deep slow rhythmic breath that you will master naturally creates a calm and focused mind and reduces stress on a physiologic level. The Viniyoga teacher incorporates safe and effective sequencing, and adaptation of poses to suit individual needs. Viniyoga classes may at times include seated breath awareness (pranayama), meditation and other yogic techniques.
     
     

  • Viniyoga: Gentle
  • Viniyoga Therapeutic classes provide an opportunity for students with chronic conditions to experience the benefits of yoga in a way that works for them and addresses chronic aches and pains with gentle therapeutic yoga techniques while gently gaining strength.
