About this pro

Kristi is a yoga teacher dedicated to weaving together physical and emotional wellness delivered through intelligently sequenced asana and meditation practices. She found yoga in 2012, and after a few years of personal exploration on the mat, took her first 200 hour intensive training. Since then she has completed another 100 hours in principles ranging from Zen Buddhism to Somatic Psychology. By incorporating traditional yogic philosophy and Buddhism alongside modern teachings of psychology and anatomical biomechanics, she strives to broaden the perspective of what we define Yoga as. While she takes the practices seriously, she always approaches teaching with a lighthearted and playful attitude.  You’ll leave sessions not only with a deeper awareness of the workings of the mind and body but with a heightened state of relaxation, spaciousness and wellbeing.

I absolutly love helping people understand their bodies, minds and breath. It is endlessly fascinating to me how the three things weave together to create a whole, happy being. Whether working on physical pratice, mediation, pranyama or a combination of all three I love to guide people towards a better understanding of how they work.

    Kristi has helped me understand a lot about the way my breath and mind work together. I have a hard time settling my thoughts down, but she has taught me a few "down to earth" meditation methods I use often. She teaches her physical classes with an emphasis on the mind and breath, which helps me the most out of anything. I highly recommend her classes.

    I love Kristi's teaching style. She makes every class educational but lighthearted. She teaches at a pace that is great to follow, and helps everyone at whatever level they are at. I always look forward to practicing with her.

    Taking class with Kristi has been the best thing I've ever done for myself. Kristi has a genuine altruistic nature, and makes both myself and others feel comfortable and cared for. She does a wonderful job of creating a class that is both physically and mentally beneficial, and is well versed in anatomy and physiology. She is compassionate and always makes me feel great.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I strive to serve every persons indivudal needs, so always start with some questions as to what the ultimate goal is, be it physical or otherwise. From here, we figure out a plan to guide the student toward their goal with grace and ease. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have over six hundred hours worth of training in Yoga and related principles. I am certified in Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative, Chair Yoga, Meditation and Breathwork. I have been teaching for over two years and have over a thousand hours teaching experience.

How did you get started teaching?

I took an introductory two hundred hour training, and instantly fell in love with teaching yoga. I love to help others, and am fascinated with yogic and buddhist teachings just as much as I am with modern biomechanics and anatomy.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students of all ages and abilities. Class styles offered range from fun and intentional flows to chair yoga for seniors and other populations interested in what yoga has to offer. Regardless of the class style, it is my passion to help everyone find what they need.
