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, Montreal, QC, Massage Therapist, Journalist, Writer, 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, Montreal, QC, 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!
