Karen Soltes LCSW, MA Ed
iRest Certified Teacher and Senior iRest Trainer Durango, CO, I hold masters degrees in both Clinical Social Work and Education and have worked in a variety of therapeutic and educational settings over the past 35 years. I have also served as the Director of the Therapeutic Yoga Program at Circle Yoga in Washington, DC. I began teaching iRest at the Washington DC VA Hospital as part of the Integrated Health and Wellness Program 10 years ago. I have observed firsthand how iRest can to be beneficial adjunctive treatment for alleviating the symptoms of PTSD, Substance Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, and Chronic Pain. In addition to my work at the VA, I am a founding partner of Warriors at Ease, whose mission is to train yoga and meditation teachers, to work in military communities. My intention is to weave together my years of clinical experience with the mind/body practices of yoga and meditation in order to empower and support people so that they may live life in a calm more balanced way.
