Kristen is a health writer and daydreamer from the east coast who moved to Seattle in search of taller mountains and a more conscious lifestyle. She first experienced the healing benefits of a regular yoga practice in 2013, during what can be characterized as a millennial quarter-life crisis. After living in seven homes in six years, she is happy to be living, teaching, working, and learning in the Pacific Northwest. As a writer, Kristen is a storyteller at heart, and her classes are inspired by daily observations, poetry, music, and science. She completed her 200-hour teacher training at yogaview in Chicago in 2015 while completing her MS in Health Communication at Northwestern University, and is currently pursuing an additional 300-hour advanced training through Seattle Yoga Arts. She is drawn to teach because she knows what it feels like to finally find your toes–and yourself–after years of grasping with no luck, and wants to empower others to step into their experience. You can expect her classes to be challenging, yet accessible, and feature intelligent and safe sequencing with a healthy dose of alignment cues and fun.
