Karen worked 10+ years in the aviation industry in Mexico, before the pandemic affected the industry. During that time, she began to ask herself if she was on the right path. With tons of time on her hands during the lockdown, Karen and her now husband decided to look for new opportunities and ended up moving to Pittsburgh from Mexico!
Initially, Karen was struggling to adapt to her new surroundings and a bit lonely as her husband was working and Karen was not. One day her husband suggested that she go to a yoga class at a studio that was nearby his new job in Pittsburgh.
The first day she joined The Om Lounge, she knew that she would keep coming back, and so she did. Karen kept coming literally everyday; that was her first introduction to the yoga practice and it was love at first sight. In one of her favorite noon classes at Om, the Dharma Talk started like this "Trust the way your life is unfolding." It was that day she made the decision: She wanted to learn all about this wonderful practice and decided to become a teacher. She completed her Teacher Training at The Om Lounge and has never looked back.
Outside of Om, Karen loves to find new places to eat and travel. She loves to discover hiking trails side by side with her husband, Carlos, and their dog "Perro". Most recently, she is teaching herself to weave on a loom.
