Kristy was first introduced to yoga during her college dance classes and began deepening her practice when she returned to NYC after graduate school. Yoga provided a shift of perspective and mind-body connection for surviving a hectic, yet wonderfully fulfilling life as a performing artist. Kristy received her 500-hour yoga teacher certification through YogaWorks in New York, New York and is registered through Yoga Alliance. She is also a certified Health/Fitness Specialist through the American College of Sports Medicine and a certified personal trainer through the American Council on Exercise.
Teaching naturally evolved out of her love for yoga and her desire to provide others with the opportunity to experience the wonderful benefits of yoga. She views her role as that of a guide who assists students along their path toward greater self-awareness. Kristy strives to provide a warm, fun, supportive environment with safe sequencing. Students of all levels can turn their focus inward and openly embrace the present moment by experiencing the subtleties of breath and alignment.
Kristy additionally holds a Masters in Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and dance minor from Bucknell University where she taught as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2009 and 2011. Kristy continues to dance professionally in Boston with Weber Dance and loves integrating her passions for movement, science and learning through her studies of yoga and other movement disciplines.
