Welcome to Karen Sheingold Yoga
Offering classes, individual instruction and workshops

“The class I attended with my sister, brother, daughter and niece was a highlight of my Rangeley week. We all loved it! Everyone had very specific positive comments about how they felt afterwards.

My brother felt taller and… stood up straighter in his 6’5” frame! My sister’s troublesome hip and ankle were greatly relieved of discomfort. My niece said she was breathing easier. My daughter reported feeling ‘more alive!’ I appreciated feeling more connected with my authentic self, always a challenge in the midst of family time.

We all enjoyed your humor and how relatable you made the practice to such a wide range of students. You make it look easy! THANK YOU!”

“Karen Sheingold’s yoga teaching is wonderfully precise so that I feel as if I am relearning my own body’s alignment and uses of energy in different and surprising ways! Each session we focus on one or two postures. We go slowly and specifically so that both my body and mind get it! In only two months time I feel far stronger, balance is better, and no more leg cramps!!

“Yoga?!  Are you kidding?  I’m 70 years old and retiring.  You seriously think there’s a rosy future for these sedentary old muscles? Well, that was two years and it seems like a lifetime ago.  How did I make it to 70 without yoga and without Karen?”

“Karen is an extraordinary teacher and her alignment-based style of teaching has had profound benefits for me…last summer I was able to raise my arm straight up for the first time in 12 years. Later I realized I was clapping joyfully at a concert…”

September 15th, 2016 by
