Karen MacDonald

Ultra Marathoner

Running is the vehicle where I find my “stillness”. Not still in the usual way we think of the word, the body sense, but still in the “being” sense. When I am “still”, I am aware of the present moment, the here and now. I feel the connection, a sense of oneness that I have with everything in that moment - my breath, the sound of my footsteps, the wind, trees, flowers and my fellow runners. Running is much more than staying in shape; it’s when I am most alive. I create friendships, laugh, smile, listen and inspire. Running is my expression of joy. As my training grew from marathons to 50 milers, from 50 milers to 100 milers, I’ve learned a lot about myself. Essentially, all of the running trails and paths my feet have met led me to the most important path of... Read the profile >>

Karen Rich

Live Life Believe, Plymouth, MA

As a stay at home mom of four enthusiastic, high energy, and “listening challenged” children who are quite close together in age, Karen needed to find a physically, emotionally and spirtually fulfilling workout all in one... and quickly! She had some extra baby weight and loved to eat so she needed a physically challenging workout that would burn an insane amount of calories. As a stay at home mom in a sort of “Groundhog Day” life, she found herself wanting a mental workout as well. Karen needed to feel like she was striving towards a goal, accomplishing that goal and learning something new. Plus, being her fabulous self, she needed FUN and excitement and to socialize with people! It was also important to avoid doing the same thing every day in order to fulfill her soul. Karen...

Kim Spear

Balance Studio and Open Doors

I arrived on my mat ten years ago, solely for the physical benefits, or so I thought. A year into my regular practice, things shifted. Yoga transformed from a physical practice to a lifestyle. I graduated from the Open Doors 200hr teaching training program in Braintree, MA in 2005 and have not looked back since. Yoga fosters a deeper level of mindfulness and acceptance, both external and internal. It teaches us to practice and live our lives with purpose and integrity, to be patient and compassionate. My mat is my haven, my friend, my classroom, my confessional, my serenity and often my sanity. My goal as a teacher is to teach the lessons I have so gratefully learned. To guide students to a place of truthfulness with courage and strength, to breathe, to feel and move with intention... Read the profile >>
