Koren Paalman, MS is Iyengar certified at the Intermediate Junior III level with a BA in Psychology from UCLA and an MS in Education from USC. She has been teaching yoga since 1995 to both youth and adults in a variety of settings nationally and internationally.
From 2002 until 2010 Koren was blessed with the opportunity to work directly with BKS Iyengar and his daughter Geeta doing yoga therapy which addressed structural defects resulting from open heart surgery done when she was three. Due to the profound structural and psychological improvements from this work she has been incorporating yoga therapy into her classes and private practice since 2002.
In 2007 Koren developed Conscious Grieving®, yoga therapy for people of all ages experiencing loss and grief of all kinds. Since its inception she has offered countless workshops locally and nationally and worked with a vast array of people privately.
Since 2017 Koren has been certified to do Yoga Therapy through IAYT.
Koren infuses her yoga and yoga therapy classes with enthusiasm, compassion and intelligence leaving people energized, refreshed and restored to a path of healing.
