Kari Harendorf is an E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, Integrative Therapist, and Holistic Heath Facilitator. She merges spiritual practice with asana and health science to help people feel and be their best.
A teacher of teachers, Kari is on faculty for the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and is a lead faculty in Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman’s 300-Hour advanced yoga teacher training program. As a Master Trainer of Urban Zen’s Integrative Therapy Program, Kari initiates Reiki practitioners and teaches essential oils, yoga therapy, meditation, breath awareness, and contemplative care to future caregivers in hospital settings and private practice.
Kari playfully focuses her teaching on helping students and teachers achieve precise anatomical alignment, to awaken the body’s innate intelligence, and foster a sense of awareness and healing through yoga, nutrition, and healthy living. She leads weekly asana classes and anatomy workshops at Yoga Great Barrington and the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as leading seasonal anatomy yoga workshops in New York City and The Hamptons.
In 2004, Kari founded the East Yoga Center studio in New York’s East Village, where she famously merged her passion for yoga and dogs with a monthly “Doga” class. This led to features in publications including The New York Times, Yoga Journal, The Wall St. Journal, appearances on The Martha Stewart Show, ABC News, Fox & Friends, and her own TV Show, K9 Karma, on Discovery’s Animal Planet.
Today, Kari lives in the mountains of Great Barrington, MA with her husband, three children, five dogs, and other creatures. Kari grew up in Toronto, CA and holds a B.F.A. from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.
