Meet Kari
I'm Kari, a mother of two children, a registered yoga teacher, certified prenatal and postnatal yoga instructor, and a yoga therapist specializing in pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, and all stages of Motherhood and Womynhood. It is no secret that Mothering is an ever-changing challenge and finding time to nourish yourself is often pushed to last or even out of mind.
My mission is to help Mothers claim their strength, find balance and thrive. I firmly believe everything you need to feel confident, strong, and vibrant in your body, mind, and spirit already lives within you. Just as with our own children, we were once that tiny baby with a birthright to be perfect just as we are. Life and experiences do get in the way of this feeling especially in times of uncertainty.
Yoga is not stretchy pants, heated rooms, and flexible female bodies. Yoga is a holistic approach to wellness and a lifestyle anyone can integrate. I am here to learn with, support, and encourage Mothers on the remarkable and challenging journey through Motherhood. I bring a fresh yet realistic perspective to helping Mothers create and achieve their physical, mental, and emotional goals and desires.

I live in Petaluma with my family and enjoy being in nature and cooking up the local bounty.


I can’t say enough good things about my work with Kari.  It was my first experience with yoga therapy.  I’m not someone who does yoga or was really even that interested in yoga as I understood it to be.  My work with Kari has opened up a whole new world to me.  Not only did the work help me with my insomnia, it helped me work through some deep feelings and introduced me to a whole new level of self-care/self-compassion. Kari is a natural. Her loving, kind ways were not just wonderful to receive but also acted as a role model for self-care, ways I could be more gentle with myself and with others.  I felt so safe and comfortable with Kari. She manages to thread the needle so skillfully: she’s both very warm, engaged and inviting but still professional and completely focused on our work.  It seems effortless for her! Whether your are a very experienced yogini or someone who’s never been on a yoga mat, I think you could greatly benefit from Kari’s knowledge, expertise, and experience but the most valuable thing Kari offers is herself.
