Kristy grew up in Ontario spending time on the lakes and water ways of Muskoka wakeboarding. After moving to Whistler in 2002 the mountain lifestyle industry opened many doors in sales & marketing, but with office work came stress and deadlines, to help manage this lifestyle Kristy started practicing yoga. Through her yoga practice and teaching Snowboard and horseback riding teaching Yoga was a natural transition. Receiving her 200hr Foundation Yoga teaching certification with Yyoga in Vancouver, BC Canada she has since trained with Baron Baptiste and teaches Power Yoga among other styles.
After paddle boarding in Hawaii she began to look at the paddle board as a moving mat to not only expand her practice but work stabilizing muscles to refine her practice on the mat.
Through starting SUP Vancouver with Coreena, Kristy has continued to grow the yoga practice on her board and looks forward to teaching others the joy and fun that comes with challenging your balance and your body.
