Yoga inspires Kristin in her everyday life, bringing her much joy and perspective.  She has taught yoga for many years, nationally and internationally, groups and private classes, workshops and retreats.

Kristin has explored different yoga styles, such as Ansusara, Iyengar, Vinyasa and Hatha, though always embracing the Ashtanga Vinyasa system in her self-practice and teachings. Her teaching style is focused on each student’s needs, alignment, breath and the practice of being in contact with one’s different aspects and surroundings. Kristin has studied under many great teachers.Guiding lights on her path are Lea Lalitha and Katiza Satya, to whom she is deeply grateful.
