She encourages students to connect with their own bodies and create movement that honors these connections. She understands that all bodies are different but believes that yoga can be done by everyone if we listen to ourselves. Yoga after all is a practice of connection.

When Kristen isn’t on her mat or driving from class to class listening to podcasts you will often find her outside nourishing herself by connecting to the natural world. Since a young age Kristen has had a deep connection with the earth and she tries to spend as much time outside as possible. She loves to hike and paddle board with her rescued ‘supermutt’ Koby. Kristen also enjoys travelling anywhere and everywhere, creating delicious plant based recipes and enjoying a cup of coffee or a hoppy beer.
Kristen’s joyful and sincere approach to life allows her to share yoga in an inclusive and nonjudgmental way; truly allowing the practice of yoga to bridge gaps. By sharing this practice that continually influences and grounds her Kristen hopes to inspire others to find their yoga.
Christina first started practicing yoga at the age of 22. Through those 8 years it has been a journey of self discovery, self awareness and self love. What she enjoys most about the practice of yoga though, is what it does for her off of her mat.After many years of hospitality management, running events and restaurants, she decided she was going to take a leap of faith and create the life she always envisioned; to bring and teach the gift of yoga to others. In her class you can expect to find a flow that inspires and motivates you to become curious about what you are capable of, to move beyond your comfort zone in an effort to create change, and a platform that encourages you to go deeper to be the best version of you! Christina’s background of training is Baptiste Power Vinyasa which is focused on asana, meditation and self inquiry. She will use this background and shell of training to bring students a catered and personal flow that moves old energy to make space for fresh oxygenated energy, creates connection to self and builds community. Christina and her husband are looking forward to welcoming a little baby girl this winter. In her spare time she is outdoors exploring beautiful New England with family, friends and her dog Cheech!
