Kari Rouse has a background in Business Administration and Management. She has dabbled in yoga over the years starting in college. Kari turned her life upside down in 2012 when she went back to school for Health Coaching, became a marathon runner, and incorporated essential oils into her lifestyle.
The pursuit of knowledge has always been a key component in her daily life, but being able to turn that around and teach people how to elevate their lives to the next level has become her true passion. As a new Mom, she looks forward to raising a strong, independent, and healthy daughter.
Flexibility and Adaptation are key elements in the practice of yoga and in how we journey through life. At Turtles Yoga & Wellness Kari looks forward to creating a cohesive and immersive yoga experience from the moment you step through the door. Implementing a whole-body wellness approach will help each member reach their goals, thus elevating the vibration of the entire studio.
