Karen Gallagher - Eurythmy - Study The synthesis of speech, music, and dance with spiritually inspired movement resonates deeply in Karen. She especially loves to enliven the ‘spaces between’, wherein we all live and breathe and have our being. Karen crossed paths with eurythmy and Waldorf education in 1998, in the beautiful Central American country of Costa Rica. She graduated at Eurythmy Spring Valley, New York and also earned a Bachelor degree through the eurythmy school in Oslo, Norway.
Karen enjoys an ongoing relationship with the annual Waldorf Teacher training at the Centro de Desarrollo Antroposófico in Cuernavaca, Mexico. In addition to eurythmy, twenty-four years of classroom experience enrich the story through a variety of subjects: Spanish, Choir, Theater and Life Skills. Karen is the mother of four grown daughters, the youngest of whom was born in Costa Rica where their young family lived for nine years. Currently she resides in Coyoacan, Mexico City.
