About the Instructors

Richard (Rick) E. Berger, MD, Professor Emeritus in the Medical School at the University of Washington, is the primary teacher of Mindfulness NW. He received his undergraduate education and medical degree from The University of Chicago. He received his certification in the teaching of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction at the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness  and received a Certification in Mindfulness Facilitation from the Mindful Awareness Research Center at the University of California in Los Angeles. Rick has taught Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPS) classes at the University of Washington Hospital, the University of Washington Intramural Activities Center and the Center for Child and Family Well-being. He also holds certificates to teach mindfulness to children and adolescents from Inner Kids and Mindful Schools and teaches mindfulness in the Seattle Public Schools. His ongoing practice includes daily meditation, yoga, silent retreats and continuing education in mindfulness and related areas.

Karen "Karb" Bullard, RYT 500, h
as been practicing yoga since 1998, has completed three teacher training programs and is a Certified Mindfulness Instructor via Mindful Schools. She was introduced to yoga shortly before her first pregnancy and it has led her to tools that have helped her embrace parenting and life with its continual challenges and rewards. It is the physical practice of asana that led Karb to discover an inner quiet and peace that is leading her along this journey called life. Her gentle low-key style and ability to relate to and connect with others are what bring her students (age 8 - 89) returning to her classes time and again.
