I started my yoga journey in December 2014. It’s only been about3-4 months but in those 3-4 months I’ve grown and learned so much. I’ve met absolutely amazing people along the way who have made such an impact on me I can’t even think of the words to describe it. One person in particular was my yoga teacher Karisa, for someone to be able to touch my hearth without saying a word to me was incredible. The first time I took her class was when yoga was very new to me. I was still not at my happiest and I was self-conscious. She walked into the room with pure joy and happiness. It took one breathing exercise for me to completely feel my heart chakra to open up. I had no idea what was happening. I felt a smile come on my face but tears falling from my eyes. It was confusing and I wasn’t sure what was wrong with me… I kept moving along the class and we ended with some chanting…. I have never chanted or heard about chanting before but I went with it… I got the most amazing experience.. i’ve learned to close my eyes and find inner peace. I have no words to thank the universe for bringing Karisa into my life. I just want to thank her for everything she has done. She might not even know it but she’s helped me grow and become a better version of myself. She is an amazing teacher and will always be teaching me something knew. Thank you.

Not only have I had the pleasure of Karisa being my spiritual guide and yoga mentor but I've also worked alongside with her teaching children with autism. Karisa brings an amazing amount of patience and guidance into her practice. The children we taught together responded positively to her calmness and soft spirit. Karisa is a gift.  She has been an extremely conscious and gracious teacher in my yoga journey to greater self love. She is kind, perceptive and open. She's extremely in tune and skilled with her wisdom, and it is a pleasure to have her guide your practice. Xoxoxox
