In this episode of the Find Calm Here Podcast, I speak with Karen East about how to create a safe space with the community and gives some suggestions on tips for creators who are building, launching, and growing a paid online membership.
'Whether I’m standing at the front of the room or I’m a participant in the back, we all have something to learn from each other. Everyone’s experience and knowledge is valuable.”
She's a holistic life coach and personal trainer, who helps clients live a balanced life by seeking possibilities, discovering what works, and re-evaluating each step of the way to dig a little deeper and shift the focus to finding happiness, joy, and total acceptance of flaws by building trust in the physical body.
As a Reiki Master and Trauma-informed yoga teacher, Karen has the ability to connect to a community and offers a safe space online and in-person in her studio. She was a founding member of the Find Calm Here Community, helping me lead the very first Find Calm Here Event in November of 2019, and has been supportive in the twists and turns of my personal and professional life.
In addition to leading a variety of classes, workshops, retreats, and other events through her business, Balanced Life Trainer, LLC, she also manages the House of Yoga in York, PA.
