"With each breathwork and meditation session with Kari, I become more attuned to the possibilities within myself. I experience my body and mind opening, releasing and relaxing. I leave each session with energy, courage, and profound hope, a knowing that empowers me throughout my day.
Although I have practiced yoga for many years, this practice has more significantly opened me to even more clarity, self compassion and connection to others.” ~ Christy F
A bit more about my journey: I have practiced meditation for over 30 years. While I formally began with transcendental meditation at age 18, I recall much earlier memories of loving to sit quietly in the meditation garden at my grade school.
My 20s brought my first trip to India, a yoga practice, Vipassana (Insight/Mindfulness) studies and chanting with Tara Brach, as well as a decade of intense work and travel, and the launch of my lifelong commitment to the path of spiritual awakening.
My 30s brought motherhood and a professional shift into the healing arts centering on women’s health through meditation, yoga, massage, birth preparation, and women’s circles.
This devotion has expanded the past decade to include leading yoga and meditation retreats, meditating through the lineage and teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and Self Realization Fellowship, and devoted study of the Yoga Sutras with Kate Holcombe and of Bhakti yoga with Jai Uttal and Nubia Teixeira.
My experience of meditation deepened profoundly with two more trips to India at ages 40 and 50. Other important influences on my meditation path include Robert Newman (Tibetan Buddhist meditation), Sally Kempton (devotional contemplative tantra), and Anand Mehrotra (Himalayan Sattva Yoga), whom I consider my Teacher with a capital T.
The greatest gift of meditation to me is the direct experience of higher consciousness and communion with the Divine. I delight in holding sacred space for others on their journey to a tranquil inner temple, transformation, and Self-discovery.
We can’t always wait for the chance to escape to a Himalayan cave or chant by the Ganges or take a silent retreat away to restore mental clarity, energy, inner steadiness, and connection to Self.
We need the gifts meditation brings right here right now, in daily life.
A consistent morning practice activates clear, focused and radiant energy to set the tone for your day. Join me for private sessions to develop a steady and fulfilling meditation practice. Incorporating breathwork techniques makes the meditative state much more accessible for most people.
In practice together, we utilize the powerful tools of pranayama, kriya, mudra, and mantra to open a direct path to a deep and dynamic stillness. Here we can connect with Self, and bathe in this illuminating field of insight, presence and ease. Come sit with me and learn these ancient yet ever relevant techniques to support you in surfing the ongoing experiential journey of life.
I also offer a package of 1) an initial consultation to learn about your experiences and what energy you would like to balance, cultivate and deepen + 2) a Zoom session in which I teach you a set of breath and kriya practices based on our consultation + 3) a video I make for you of your practices so you can practice regularly with that support.
