Kristen fell in love with Yoga in 2009 when her employer’s HR Manager brought in Yoga for their employees as a method of stress management. Over the years since, several teachers have come and gone, not really melding well with the specific needs that the students at work needed. Most teachers were thin & intimidated most employees with their extreme flexibility and speed in which the sequences flowed. Having found a place to practice in Seymour with a mature teacher renewed her love for yoga. Her teacher offered the use of props to aid in the asana practice. Introduction to these props was what triggered the light bulb within and from there grew the desire to know more about Yoga. At the suggestion of her teacher to take the 200 hour YTT course, she graduated training from the Glowing Body Studio in Knoxville, TN in 2014 where she learned much, much more than just asana practice.
“I wanted to learn more about yoga and deepen my personal practice. Now, I offer yoga classes at work so that others like me that were intimidated can experience the alignment of the body, the stillness of the mind, and the restoration of the spirit that yoga brings. It has enhanced my strength and flexibility, and it really feels like a “fountain of youth” so to speak. I want to make yoga accessible, so others can experience the transformational process of yoga and regain the body and the mind.”
