Karen Merigo has been practicing yoga in the San Francisco Bay area since 1996 and has been so lucky to meet and take classes with amazing teachers like Betty Roi, Leslie Howard and Judith Hanson Lasater. She has taught yoga and pilates since 2006. She is a certified 200-hr yoga teacher with Frog Lotus Yoga and a Relax and Renew Level 1 teacher with Judith Hanson Lasater. She is in the process of becoming certified in Restorative Level 2 -Therapeutic Applications of Restorative Yoga.

In her own journey of discovery about the connection between body and the psyche she has found that deep relaxation is the key to reach within and start a healing process in which the body is restored and the psyche is renewed. Since this revelation, she has been passionate about helping students to relax deeply in restorative poses so that they can enjoy the amazing benefits of this practice.
