Karen Adair, an eRYT-200 registered yoga teacher who has taught over 1,000 hours, unifies the minds and bodies of all levels of yoga practitioners with a schedule of relaxing and invigorating classes. By guiding students through Vinyasa and Hatha practices, Karen helps unify postures with controlled breathing to help stimulate muscle growth and flexibility, easing the stresses of daily traffic jams and nightly break-dance competitions. As students follow along, Karen advises and assists in pose modifications and encourages personal practice.
Alternatively, private sessions—scheduled to fit the clients’ and teacher’s availabilities—are held at personal residences within 25 miles of Ocala’s downtown square. Karen recommends that clients set aside at least 100 minutes for their private sessions, which take students through the teachings of asana and allow them to hone specific aspects of their yoga practice. During the 15-minute savasana, a time set aside for relaxing and winding down, an optional massage assuages muscles worn from the exhilarating workout. Karen cannot teach in homes with pets because of her allergies.
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.
