In 2012, Karen Iracane was a busy working mom in search of a way to unwind at the end of a hectic day. A dancer since the age of four, she participated in her first yoga class at a dance studio, slept like a log that night, and was immediately hooked.
As she made the move from dancer to yogi, her practice provided her with the opportunity to experience an array of yoga’s physical and emotional benefits. After 5 years, with encouragement from one of her teachers, she completed the 200-RYT hour teacher training program at Boundless Yoga Studio.
Taking inspiration from her dance background, Karen’s style incorporates stretching and gentle flow, combining breath with movement. Her humor and gentle encouragement provide a relaxed environment for all students. She believes everyone should leave class feeling content.
When she’s not on her mat, Karen enjoys reading, cooking, dining al fresco, shopping in downtown Stroudsburg, and spending time with her husband and son.
