Karen Lutz began practicing yoga later in life, and found back pain relief for herself, as she developed a daily practice. Karen decided to delve into studying at a deeper level and started teacher training several years later. Shortly after receiving her Yoga Alliance RYT certification, she received her Yoga Ed. certification to teach children. Karen has been a CAM therapist for one of the local hospital groups for several years, and teaches gentle and chair yoga for those who are either limited in mobility, reluctant to get onto a mat, or are recovering from an injury or illness. Physically, emotionally and spiritually, Karen has found yoga to be a healing aspect in her life, and she is grateful to have the opportunity to share the practice offering her students the ability to open doors to a more gratifying life through yoga. Karen is a member of the YAGD (Yoga Association of Greater Detroit) and attends teacher trainings as they become available. In 2005, Karen founded Changing Poses LLC, which offers non-toxic, biodegradable, and aroma-therapeutic yoga mat cleaners to students, teachers and yoga studios.
