Kristen has found joy and balance in her life through yoga and kickball. Kickball is silly, social and a little competitive. Yoga brings peace, stillness, and calm to each day… A unique and perfect harmony for Kristen!
After practicing Ashtanga yoga for 10 years, Kristen completed her teacher training (RYT) at Yoga East with Kimberly Dahlmann under the philosophy and tradition of Sri K Pattabhi Jois (Mysore, India). Soon after completing her teacher training, she teamed up with fellow Ashtangi Sharon McGauley to open an Ashtanga focused studio in Portland, Maine.
Already a lululemon superfan, Kristen was thrilled at the opportunity to teach community yoga in the Portland Showroom. Shortly thereafter she became a proud ambassador.
Kristen believes in the healing abilities of a yoga lifestyle that includes not only the physical asana practice, but also healthy dietary choices, loving kindness, compassion and joy. She believes that anyone can do yoga and works diligently to encourage all ages and body types to give yoga a try, welcoming all levels of students to her classes. Kristen works to spread the gift of yoga in hopes of making our community and ultimately the world a more peaceful place.
