About Paul Menard.

Director, Karuna Center for Yoga and Healing Arts
Yoga Instructor & Shiatsu Practitioner E-RYT 500, YACEP, AOBTA-CP

Paul Menard began studying yoga in 2002 and has maintained a passionate practice ever since. His background in classical dance gives him profound appreciation for the intricacy of the form that yoga affords. His elegance and grace shines through his postures and the execution of his teaching. Paul’s pursuit of a more spiritual practice led him to Karuna, where he feels blessed to have found such an open and welcoming community. In addition to yoga, Paul has a fervor for education. He completed his master’s degree in Adult Education and Training in early 2011 to complement his career as a workplace learning and development professional. He has completed the 300-hour advanced yoga teacher certification program at Karuna and is seeking other professional credentials as an educator. Paul is excited to connect his love of education and passion for yoga at Karuna.

Paul Menard Yoga Instructor comes to us from the Karuna Center for Yoga and Healing Arts in Northampton Massachusetts, United States.

Best Fitness Story

  • I have personally wrapped my feet with duct tape in order to reach overhead and grab my
    formerly slippery foot in a back bend.
  •  A teacher of mine drew on me from head-to-toe with permanent marker so that I could understand movement of joints, bones, and muscles and be a model for the class.
  • I have used just about everything as a yoga prop, including: my sneaker, logs, and broom sticks. I have literally used the kitchen sink.
