Kristina's journey into yoga was sporadic at first covering at least a decade. Each time she came back with more of a personal interest. In 2007 she sought out yoga to help her cope with the stress in her life. Kristina's practice has continued to deepen since that time to include the spiritual aspects of yoga and has brought about many life changing benefits in the process. As a single full time mother of two, yoga has brought much needed balance and peace to her hectic life. In hopes of sharing this gift with others, Kristina took her yoga instructor training in Sept. 2009 and is a registered yoga instructor at the 200 hr level with The Yoga Alliance. Kristina is also a personal trainer and has plans to pursue her holistic health practitioner license and continue to learn and grow on her yogic journey all the while sharing her experiences with anyone and everyone along the way!
