Michele Karl
Eryt-200, Rcyt,-95 Yoga Instructor
VP of Operations

With a mix of Latin and Asian roots, Michele Karl was born in May of 1979. She studied Systems Engineering and received a postgraduate degree in Human Resources, as well as worked in various fields including Colombian politics; however in none of them was she able to live a fulfilled life. It was after being in a physically and mentally abusive relationship, (what nowadays she sees as a blessing), when she discovered yoga. That was the beginning not only of her self-healing but also of finding her true calling. Michele is a registered Yoga teacher, certified in Elementary and Middle School Yoga for kids, Yin Yoga, Yoga for Athletes, Yoga 12 Steps Recovery, as well as Trauma Informed Outreach Training. Michele is an Eryt-200, Rcyt, trauma informed yoga instructor.

Natalie Coon
Ryt-200
Yoga Instructor

Natalie Coon graduated from Corepower Yoga on October of 2014. Her first taste of yoga happened when a friend took her to a small Bikram yoga studio in Silverlake, CA in 2011. At the time she was working as a 3D modeler at Nickelodeon and found herself eager to try something new. Long hours in a seated position took a toll of her body and mind. She found herself transitioning to a full time job at Bikram Yoga Headquarters and worked there for over a year. 

Shortly thereafter, she started working at a sleep clinic and simultaneously committed herself to the yoga for trade program offered at the Wilshire studio in Los Angeles. She immediately signed up for teacher training when the opportunity presented itself. In 2015, she moved to Illinois and made her way as a teacher to a studio manager where she managed Corepower Yoga studios in Naperville and Oak Park. She stepped down and started her own yoga company teaching to children, teens, amputees, seniors, and special needs populations.  

In 2019 her mom was diagnosed with lung cancer and she moved down to Florida to help her mom with her treatments. She found yoga to be super effective with easing some of the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Covid came along and these tools were even more beneficial to those struggling to find their footing in an uncertain time. She taught online yoga classes and meditation for those under lock down.
