Karen Morian

Karen Morian hails from St. Louis, and has lived in Aspen since November 2012. She moved to the mountains for a quiet, simple lifestyle in a small town that values nature, activity, and community. Karen is a certified Personal Trainer, and loves teaching Lagree at Higher Terrain. She also teaches Pilates and Barre around the community.

If you’re taking Karen’s Lagree class, you can bet you’ll be doing some escalator lunges, and getting a lesson on the importance of shoulder stability in EVERY movement! Karen loves to share information about how your body works, how what you’re doing in studio helps you in “the real world,” and always encourages efficient movement.

Karen will tell you, “if you can focus on the intention of the exercises, and push past those hurdles of discomfort, you’ll unlock power you never knew existed… keep breathing through it!”
