Karuna Yoga Buffalo is a nurturing environment where you can practice all eight limbs of traditional yoga, including posture, relaxation, meditation and philosophy. With regular practice you will become stronger, more flexible, and more balanced not only in the body but in the mind and spirit as well. However, the practice here is less about "becoming" something than it is about "unbecoming" everything that isn't you. There is a strong focus on quieting the mind and calming the nervous system. Students will practice letting go of fear, pain, sorrow, anger, doubt, guilt, attachment, negative self image and anything else that does not serve them. It is our philosophy that human beings are here on this earth to ENJOY and to learn from life. It is our mission to help each and every one of our yogis cultivate the joy that is within, gain insight into what causes individual suffering, and bring relief to that suffering.

She is also currently in training to complete her 500-hour certification at the Himalayan Institute.
