Kristen has a love for learning and for teaching. She came to yoga as a way to gain strength and flexibility, and to balance her active lifestyle as a runner. Since then, her practice has grown to a lifelong journey toward health and wellness. Yoga has brought Kristen a sense of balance in a sometimes chaotic world. She enjoys sharing the feeling of well-being with her students.
Kristen has been an elementary school teacher since 2006, and has a passion for developing well balanced, physically and emotionally healthy children. She uses this passion to drive her yoga instruction from a place of compassion and understanding. Her classes are therapeutic in nature, taking cues from the Iyengar Style of yoga, focusing on correct body alignment and healing.
Kristen focus is on Children’s Yoga, Therapeutic and Restorative. Kristen currently studies with Suzette Scholtes at The Yoga School of Therapeutics, through which she has also spent time in teacher trainings and workshops with Aadil Palkhivala, Doug Keller, and Judith Hanson Lasater.
