Before moving to Chattanooga in 1993, Kari Pollard was born in the state of Maryland into a Navy family. For the first 13 years of her life, Pollard was able to travel the world with her family, something that she is incredibly grateful for. She earned her bachelor degree in biology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and made a move out west after graduation. Then she found yoga.
“I fell in love,” she says. "It was a great combo of my passion for exercise, healthy living, artful movement, free spirit and teaching people what I love to do best.”
Pollard has been a yoga instructor since the summer of 2009. Teaching has taken her from Ft. Lauderdale to Costa Rica and she recently topped the incredible milestone of 500 TT hours earlier this year. Yoga keeps her in the present, helps her in a numerous amount of many ways and is by and far her number one passion. She is also happily married and has “the coolest and most fun” daughter someone can dream of.
