Karen Toran

Yoga instructor

Karen began her personal yoga practice in 1999.  Realizing how beneficial it was for her body and mind, she decided to take the journey into becoming a certified yoga instructor.

In 2007, she trained under Ann Yocum, owner of Colts Neck Hot Yoga and earned her 200 hour certification in Hot Yoga.  She continued to further her knowledge and received her 200 hour Integrative Yoga Therapy certification in 2010. 

Her own practice came to a sudden halt in 2014 when she needed to a have spine surgery.  After developing several complications, and an additional surgery, she had to put her physical practice on hold but was able to focus on her own inner strength and mindfulness.

Currently, an E-RYT 200, RYT 500 instructor, with over 15 years experience, she continues to attend courses and workshops regularly to expand her knowledge as well as improve her own personal practice.

“Every time I step onto my mat and start my practice, I am able to embrace the day ahead, filling me with inner strength and peacefulness.  I am truly honored to be able to share my knowledge and expertise with all my students as I continue to learn from each one of them daily. “
