Hi, my name is Kara Fleming. I received my 500 Hour certification in June 2012, and I am so excited to begin teaching at Sunstone. My yoga journey began three years ago in March 2009 when I decided to try out Sunstone. I was ready for a change from my fitness routine of boot camps, personal training, marathon running, etc.. and I wanted to find out about all the benefits I heard yoga had to offer. So, three years and 500 classes later, I clearly was hooked and decided I was ready to take my yoga practice a step further. As my husband put it, I was ready to not just "do yoga but to know yoga." The teacher training was life changing, and now I feel humbled that I get to share my passion with Southlake's amazing students. I am truly honored to watch and guide each student as they grow in their own practice. Being able to share that experience with others, I realize how much my own practice grows every single day that I am in the yoga room with you.
Outside of the yoga room, I am grateful that I was able to leave the auditing and business consulting world and be a stay-at-home mom for my two children. Of course, I feel like I am never actually at-home and can usually be found doing volunteer work, spending time on the golf course, or running the weeknight shuttle service to swim team, flute, basketball, etc. I wouldn't have it any other way. That is, unless I get to enjoy my other true passion in life: TRAVEL. I am always happily planning another trip somewhere!
One of my favorite quotes is Emerson's "Life is a journey, not a destination." May your yoga journey bring you peace and contentment. See you on the mat!
