Biography

Karen Bullard (aka Karb) has been practicing yoga for over 17 years and has had a daily mindfulness practice for the last 6. As well as the year-long certification via Mindful Schools she has also completed her 200-hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) certification and will soon complete her 500-hour RYT. She has taught Yoga and Mindfulness to kids, including teens and tweens for the last 3 years via fitness studios, schools and the YMCA as well as an Intro to Mindfulness program to undergrads at the University of Washington. She has benefitted so much personally from these practices and enjoys seeing the positive impact and changes in the youth she works with, many who deal with high levels of anxiety and stress.
Previously, Karb spent a decade in high tech, led bicycle tours across the Pacific Northwest, worked as a copy editor and wrote a blog about living abroad with her family in Spain. She has run marathons, scaled mountains, biked across the United States and traveled the globe for both work and pleasure. But her most important, challenging yet rewarding role, is as a parent of 2 teenage boys and she now happily finds herself based in her native Seattle and Hood River, Oregon, where she makes the time to watch her 2 sons grow up and spends time with her family, friends and community.
