Dear Karen, I can't thank you enough, you will never know just how much you have helped me in my process of forgiving and healing. Meeting your and learning from you in the incredible training has changed my life. You have given me the tools to really change my life and for that I am eternally grateful. I started this training wanting to be a yoga teacher, now not only am I a yoga teacher I am a whole person again. In my transformation I have also gained better relationships with the people in my life I love and care for. this training is a wonderful growing process and I appreciate all that it has given me. Hugs & gratitude, Namaste Colleen xo  (from graduate of weekend program 2009-10 given in a personal card June 6, 2010)



Karen Claffey is a true yogi, offering up her knowledge of the physical asanas and precise, safe alignment in poses ranging from the beginner level all the way up to the highly advanced in a clear, effective teaching style. The course was a balance between physically demanding work of perfecting our yoga asanas, and spiritual growth fostered through the contemplative and meditative practices of Raja yoga. Karen teaches from her heart. She has a gentleness and softness of heart that inspire students to open and blossom. This heart, combined with a sharp mind and a body at once supple and strong, makes her a model that will inspire me always. Amazing course. Unforgettable. Claire Holden Rothman, Massage Therapist, Journalist, Writer, Yoga Teacher​

It was wonderful. I enjoyed the fun filled challenge as a whole through physical, spiritual, soulful journey. I surprised myself how much I learned and how much confidence I gained as a teacher in three weeks. Thank you Karen. You are an optimal teacher. The practice teachings allowed me to develop as a confident, knowledgeable teacher.  Anna Hallows, Gymnastics Coach, Yoga Teacher

The training was profound. It went beyond any of my expectations. I found a new love for yoga and met people with incredible strength. This training gave me a new perspective not only of yoga but of life itself. Karen you really are an amazing inspirational teacher.  Gemma Waldron, Naturopath, Yoga Teacher



This training not only met my expectations but much more. I have learned the "true essence" of yoga. The alignment principles were great for teaching asanas which gave me confidence in teaching them and ensuring safety of my students. But what I found most valuable was all the Yin & Yang, the yoga philosophy, therapeutics, chakras....and extras that taught me so much about yoga and life!  Evelyn Odoefer, Reflexology Practitioner, Yoga Teacher

Tu m'as fait decouvrir un jardin exceptionnellement riche et prodigue, tu nous a fait jardiner enormement, comme jamais on sen serait cru capable.

Merci! xx  Mylene Roy, Choreographer, Journalist, Theater Writer/performer. Danga & Yoga Teacher
