"Karen is such a gifted teacher and bodyworker! She is so knowledgeable about the human body and creates a fun learning environment. This class was very hands-on. If you are a bodyworker of any kind this class can help take your skills to another level of therapeutics. I learned so many manual therapy techniques to help guide the body towards better alignment. I have already helped several people out of their own painful movement patterns. I am amazed at how well this stuff works! I can't wait to take level two!" ~ Jamette Mongia, 2015
