She also participated in the Teacher Training Program at the Magic Tortoise School.   She has taught karate and has designed special Awareness Through Movement® workshops for both "hard style" martial artists (karate, TKD) and Taiji players. Karen meditates regularly and notes the influence that her meditation practice brings to her Feldenkrais work.   Karen formerly worked as a research biologist at a large pharmaceutical company in Research Triangle Park.  She is currently a full time Feldenkrais practitioner and offers Functional Integration® lessons weekdays and weekends.
