Karyn was born and raised in Colorado Springs. She moved to MA to work in Cardiac Surgery in 2001 and fell in love with New England. She transitioned into Orthopedic Device Sales a few years later and met her Husband while working in Boston. The Ocean was calling, so they moved to Falmouth with their 2 young girls in 2014 to put down Roots and haven’t looked back!
Karyn came to yoga in attempt to relieve back pain and increase strength and found so much more! Yoga offered a pathway to holistically heal anxiety and old wounds through the simple act of stillness, deep breathing, bringing her attention inward and the power of being present. In attempt to learn more about this ancient practice and deepen her own spiritual and physical practice, she signed up for a 200 hour Yoga teacher Training in 2017 and has continued to study the philosophy, history and science behind Yoga and Meditation.
Karyn has always had a desire to help those in need and was looking for a way to provide a service that would benefit the Falmouth Community where she resides. After finishing Yoga Teacher Training, she decided to open Rooted, a Yoga and Fitness studio that would make practicing Yoga more accessible by offering child care, class times from early morning into the evening, locker room with showers, affordable community classes, classes for clients with disabilities, as well as veterans and cancer patients. The studio is being designed in hopes clients will stay after to grab a hot tea, read a book or cultivate a new friendship.
Karyn trained with Tara Prinster, and is certified to teach Yoga for Cancer Patients. She looks forward to offering this class as a service to the community. She has also had the great opportunity to audit Valerie Ugrinow’s 200 hour YTT that is being offered through Rooted Yoga as well as take private lessons with her to deepen her knowledge. Karyn is working on her certification in Kids Yoga as well As Barre Training.
Karyn is proud and grateful to have an amazing, supportive and caring team by her side who a have a genuine desire to serve others by sharing their knowledge, gifts and talents!
