Your Yoga with Karen Adair
When soprano Karen Adair isn’t captivating audiences with her breathtaking vibratos and expressive high notes during oratorios and operas, she’s helping clients of all ages and abilities forge strong connections between mind, body, and spirit during Vinyasa and Hatha yoga classes. As a certified yoga instructor, she leads classes that teach awareness of mental and physical health through asanas linked with breathing, and helps her students boost flexibility and strength while giving personalized corrections and adjustments to stave off injury. Karen keeps her practice sharp by attending continuing-education workshops under Beryl Bender Birch, a world-renowned yoga teacher and author. She brings this knowledge to her studio and clients' residences for private, in-home yoga classes, during which she helps experienced athletes reach deeper stretches or teaches sedentary yoga mats how to stand up.
