Kristin began her yoga journey in January of 2015 practicing along to free yoga classes on YouTube. After holding her first arm balance for just a second she was hooked to the physical aspect of the practice. She found meditation through the physical practice, connecting the breath with movement and briefly turning off the crazy of everyday life. A recent graduate of Alma’s 200 hour RYT, she puts a lot of focus on core and building strength. She loves the upside down life, it builds strength and confidence, and always a fun time. She believes anyone can achieve this with hard work and a consistent practice.

I approach the practice of yoga with the intention of creating a strong connection between the body, breath, and mind. My classes are designed in a way to guide others into a fuller experience of their bodies & themselves through this practice. Letting the breath lead you, you can come to explore a deeper connection of the inner & outer worlds through the movement of the physical body & the breath, and the linking together of the two. In one of my classes, Kripalu Yoga, will be wonderful for those seeking an introductory experience to Yoga or looking to give their body the care it needs at a slower pace. My other class Functional Flow is part Yoga, part Functional Movement. This class will utilize postures commonly found in yoga to creat a flowing sequence of movements infused with anatomical knowledge. We will seek to explore how to use our bodies to move in a variety of ways and learn to engage the necessary muscles to create a strong, integrated body that is capable of amazing things.
