Hi! I'm Kari and I'm originally from Wisconsin. I started practicing yoga 6 years ago when I worked a full time, high paying job and attended acting school full time. I needed a way to destress! When I moved to L.A. in 2014 to start my acting career, a dear friend of mine introduced me to hot yoga. It was love at first Savasana! A year after moving to L.A., one of my favorite teachers suggested I enroll in teacher training. With a gentle nudge and tons of support from my mentor, I decided to take the leap into teaching yoga! I have been teaching full time since 2016 and am certified in Power Yoga (200 hours), Yoga Sculpt, and Yoga for Traumatized Populations. I also teach Vinyasa, restorative, and kids yoga, and I am a certified advanced Reiki practitioner. In May 2018, I will be traveling to India to receive my 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training. There are too many words to express how much this beautiful practice has affected my life. I hope to create a safe space for my students to explore their practice and make it uniquely their own, as well as inspire a life long curiosity and love for yoga, health, and wellness. I love connecting with each and every single one of my students, and would be overjoyed to grab a tea with you to talk about yoga, life, the Universe, and everything!
Kari Cowell instructs the following:
Sculpted Warrior. Offered in the hot yoga room and non-heated yoga room. Rock out to upbeat tracks as you boost metabolism and build lean muscle mass. You’ll combine the Warrior Flow 2 sequencing with free weights and cardio to intensify each yoga pose while mixing in strength-training moves like squats, lunges, planks and bicep curls. This dynamic resistance-training yoga method uses compound movement with your own bodyweight, weights, blocks, bands and sliders to provide a full body workout.
Tranquil Warrior. Offered in the hot yoga room and the non-heated yoga room. Reboot and rebuild with a series of holding postures that focus on stretching and breathing. This class is designed to alleviate soreness, work the connective tissues in your body and give your mind a well-deserved moment of reflection and relaxation. Restorative yoga is about healing the mind and body through simple poses often held for a longer time, with the help of props such as block, pillows and straps.
