Our Teachers

Karen Volpe

After practicing yoga and meditation for many years, Karen came upon David Swenson's manual and, in 2008, discovered Ashtanga yoga.  It became not just a practice, but a way of bringing together all of the disparate pieces of her life - a way of practicing poetry and awakening to the present moment.

She has been assisting and teaching at Yoga on High since completing her 200hr teacher training in 2010, and has studied with Tim Miller, Richard Freeman, David Swenson, Maty Ezraty, Doug Keller, and David Keil.  She also spent a month living, working, and studying yoga and tai ji at Esalen Institute in Big Sur.

Karen is thankful for all of her teachers and students, is honored to be part of the Yoga on High community, and offers her sincere gratitude for the wisdom of this practice.
