Karen Gamble: Class director

Karen has been practicing yoga for over 20 years.  Yoga, she says, is like the saying, ‘it’s the journey, not the destination’ – it is in the practice of yoga “that we find out who we are, in our bodies, in our breath and hopefully in our hearts.” A teacher for more than ten years, Karen says the “unpretentious and honest atmosphere” at the Ballard Health Club allows instructors and students alike to feel better, become stronger and live a healthy dynamic lifestyle from within. Karen is a YA certified 500-ERYT yoga instructor, IIN Health Coach and teaches group fitness.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.”
