Karen Mandell is an E-RYT 500 certified yoga teacher based in Jersey City, NJ. Karen began practicing yoga in 1998 as a means to escape her fast paced life as a fashion executive in New York City. She soon discovered how a regular yoga practice brought a much needed balance to her life on both a physical and spiritual level as well as a deeper connection with herself and the world around her. She was called to teaching in 2009 and received her 200-hour certification at Devotion Yoga in Hoboken, NJ. She later went on to receive her 300-hour training and certification at ISHTA Yoga in NYC with Alan Finger as well as her ISHTA Yin Yoga certification. She also received her Advanced Level Restorative and Therapeutics Yoga Training with Jillian Pransky at Yoga Works.
She believes that yoga is all about finding the balance within ourselves that exists inherently but simply needs to be rediscovered by removing the obstacles that keep us from being our authentic perfection.
