Kristen is fascinated by the power of yoga on and off the mat. She loves that yoga strengthens the body but also calms and focuses the mind. First introduced to yoga in 2005, Kristen has developed her asana practice and enjoys how it complements her love of the outdoors and active lifestyle. Kristen’s classes have an emphasis on mindful movement, alignment based flow, and exploring the balance of alignment and breath while letting go of mind “stuff” to just be in the present moment and each pose. She is also passionate about teaching the therapeutic yoga classes like yin and restorative. When not on her yoga mat, Kristen loves to be active with her fur-babies, who thoroughly enjoy giving kisses to humans who are practicing yoga poses down on their level. Kristen is excited to share in the adventure of living yoga on and off the mat with her students and the community.
