“It’s truly amazing. You have given her such a strong sense of self, self-confidence and the feeling of empowerment and control of her body. It’s hard but she’s having fun and doable and you have set her up to success. Feeling good in your own body as a teen is so hard, especially when you have scoliosis, but she feels good in her own skin. You are magic. Thank you!”–Jenn M, Mother of teen with scoliosis.
“My 11-year-old daughter and I visited Karena from the Midwest. We went for a four day intensive and left with so much knowledge about my daughters curve. Not only did we learn great things…Karena put together a very manageable program to continue at home. She left California with great posture, confidence, and determination!”–Rebecca D, Mother of child with scoliosis
“Your work is so innovative and original. You are truly a unique combination of scientist and artist in one person.
Your way of teaching and leading the group was so inspiring. Fully present in each moment with both kindness and humor. (Mia and I were even more impressed when we looked up the time difference between California and Holland).
I am so grateful to you for making me almost pain free in one session. And It still works!!!
What is complicated to understand my body got immediately. Take the best care of yourself! Still walking on clouds here!”– Kristina, adult with scoliosis
