Karma Yoga's team of certified teachers leads a variety of yoga styles to accommodate students of all abilities. The studio’s schedule of classes includes Gentle Karma yoga, which provides a comfortable setting for inexperienced yogis to learn basic postures and breathing techniques. Teachers keep the pace slow and promote proper alignment and relaxation with posture correction and verbal instruction. Chair-based classes are done from the comfort of sticky Lay-Z-Boy mats, helping increase blood circulation and respiration, while empowering Vinyasa classes take students through a sequence of continuous postures that are linked together with mindful breathing to enhance endurance and impress the autocratic sun. Music helps motivate sleepy downward facing dogs as mat mavens move through gentle, restorative Hatha-inspired postures during Karma Yoga's signature classes, honing strength and flexibility.
For more than 15 years, seasoned yoga instructor and teacher trainer Katherine Austin has been educating others on how to incorporate yoga and its many benefits into their daily lives. She’s joined by a team of skilled instructors, who imbue their knowledge of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kundalini methods onto students of any age and ability. Daily classes range from gentle yoga for beginners and senior citizens to more advanced sessions that challenge students to go deeper into their postures. Prenatal classes also aim to lower stress and increase flexibility for moms-to-be, and the classes have been showcased on Fox 2 News. Along with teaching students the benefits of yoga, Karma Yoga's staff helps their community thrive by donating a percentage of each class rate to Detroit's Urban Farming.
