About this pro

🕉 I’m Kara or my Spiritual name is Mahashakti. I Love, Live & Breathe Yoga in the city of Fountain Hills, AZ.

20+ years experience.  

I am blessed to teach Hatha Yoga as it was taught to me while living in an Ashram with my Gurus/Teachers; true Swamis(one who knows) The yoga you will be practicing is a traditional style of Yoga from the Swami Sivananda lineage.

Great for beginners & advanced students!

I'm I also teach restorative yoga- great for the elderly, the anxious, the stressed & the injured. Activate the parasympathetic nervous system. Connect w God. 
Come Breathe w me & not only extend this life but experience a Peace that surpasses all understanding.  Must Experience to understand- Let me help you get there.

Want Balance in your Body, Mind & Soul?  Relieve/Release physical, & or emotional pain? Depressed? Anxious? Want to lose fat & become flexible? This is the yoga for you. 

Ever wanted to learn to meditate? Call me!

Addiction Issues?  I can help! I also hold a special 12 Step Yoga for Recovery Certificate. (Y12SR)  The issues live in our tissues.

Pranayama (controlled breathing)- you will learn alternate nostril breathing & Breath if Fire - Kapalabhati- 2 extremely powerful breathing techniques.  A unique benefit available, because of my being an energy healer, all lessons can end w/ an Essential Oil infused healing, foot massage.

I am Healthy, Happy, Peace & Love! If you contact me, I can help you attain these true blessings. Yoga is not a religion - I am a yoga teacher who happens to be in love with Jesus. Yes Christians can practice yoga. 
Yoga is a prayer in motion.  

I love seeing the smiles on my students faces when they are fully engaged body, mind & soul looking so serene & peaceful.  Plus I get to share my passion & my love for others while helping them in the processs.  It’s truly a dream come true!  I thank God from the bottom of my Heart that this is my calling in life.

    Kara is clearly prepared. First, she creates an environment that is conducive to quiet relaxation. Her lessons are clearly prepared, yet Kara is flexible and adaptable to the needs of the class. Her patience is soothing yet challenging in ensuring that as a student, I am achieving my personal best.

How did you get started teaching?

I was extremely fortunate to get a job at two different studios as soon as I finished my teacher training. One at a studio in Lakewood Ohio & One in Avon Lake, Ohio.  I then started teaching privately 1 on 1 & I loved it! The rest is history.  If you are serious about having a true yoga  practice- Be prepared to  dedicate/ invest time & budget for at least a two month commitment. 2x week. OR If you are just interested in trying yoga out- We can do a restorative class- U basically lye comfortably, & breathe.;in Savasana, legs up the wall, supported bound amgle pose etc..

Being an energy healer & using essential oils in my sessions also sets me apart!

Make the call- I want to meet you. Nothing in this world happens by accident. LOVE LOVE LOVE 312-450-9425

I can adapt the yoga practice to AnyBODY!!!!!!! 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Full/Blood Moon. A friend of mine took me to an amazing prayer garden! It was very auspicious. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet the teacher and make sure you feel comfortable and connected to the teacher.  

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I believe you feel it when you have found the right teacher for you. 

Any physical limitations or injuries that are bothering you.Be open and Honest about your goals.  Are you trying to get balance physically,emotionally & Spiritually?  Or do you want a more flexible body which makes a more flexible Mind.  Lose weight?  Learn to breathe correctly- Inhale through the nostrils -Exhale through the nostrils Learn -3 part breath?  I teach Pranayama(a sort of breath control exercise)Very Powerful!
