Kristin’s love affair with yoga dates back to 2000. For her, stepping on to the mat felt like coming home. The myriad of styles and traditions in the yoga world appealed because of her own interdisciplinary background. Kristin has been influenced by teachers from the Iyengar and Ashtanga traditions and has completed teacher training in Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga. She also holds a certificate from the Duke Centre for Integrative Medicine in Therapeutic Yoga for Seniors.
At Stretch, a class with Kristin means that first and foremost, you will be welcomed – her classes are accessible to a diversity of ages and experiences. She teaches yoga from a perspective rooted in tradition but backed by evidence-based research and established principles of anatomy and physiology. Kristin also emphasizes empowerment, both through knowledge of the body’s structure and movement, and through re-establishing trust in the body’s intelligence. As a practitioner, you will be invited to challenge yourself in a safe and thoughtful manner and you will be guided to relax deeply.
