Koren Paalman has been teaching yoga since 1995 to people of all ages in a variety of settings nationally and internationally. She holds a Senior Iyengar Teaching Credential, is a certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), a Yoga for Scoliosis specialist and is registered E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance. As a former US National Athlete she has been exploring body movement all her life. In 2007 she founded Conscious Grieving®, a grief support service that combines yoga with other modalities in individual consultations and workshops nationally. Currently, Koren teaches Iyengar yoga classes at 6 different locations within the Los Angeles region. Additionally she offers numerous workshops and retreats annually. Koren was honored to work therapeutically with BKS Iyengar and his daughter Geeta in Pune, India biannually for 10 years.
Koren has experienced the practice of yoga as a unique opportunity to consciously explore the vast possibilities of body movement and through doing so progressively create an enhanced state of awareness. Her dedicated yoga, pranayama and meditation practice has also helped to quiet her mind and thus embark on a journey of self-discovery toward her own true essence, and that which lies beyond.
