Yoga for Tired People
I teach holistic hatha yoga lessons on evenings & weekends to help you feel more energetic, dump excessive stress, manage chronic pain, and live a happier, more fulfilled life.
Hi, I'm Kristen!
I’m a Yoga Alliance-certified teacher who is completely obsessed with good self-care!
Why the obsession? Because I spent a huge chunk of my life feeling absolutely awful. Let me tell you how I got here:
Anxiety, depression, joint pain, exhaustion, and random mystery medical symptoms defined my life for almost a decade. I had tried several medications, I had seen so many doctors I had lost count, and I still felt awful, day after day. The best my doctors could do was tell me that I likely had Fibromyalgia, and that some medications could help, but ultimately, this was something I would need to learn to live with.
Uh, no thanks? Can I pass on a lifetime of feeling bad?
I tried to "live with it" as best I could, but constantly feeling ill and in pain put a huge strain on my relationships and work.
Ultimately, I got sick and tired of being sick and tired!
I didn't want to live my life from bed anymore, so I made "getting better" my personal research project. After thousands of hours of research through books, classes, mentors, experimentation, and practice, my life has completely changed. I live close to "normal" now, and my flare-ups are few and far between. I'm passionate about helping people manage stress, chronic low energy, and pain by sharing what I've learned through yoga, meditation, mindset management, and healthy eating. I understand that everyone's symptoms vary, so if you choose 1:1 lessons, we'll work out a plan that's custom tailored exactly to what you need. If you'd rather join in for group classes, they will always be mindful of energy levels and will include pose variations.
In a short time, Kristen has already become such a positive force in helping me achieve my yoga goals. She took the time to get to know where I'm at currently, what I would like to holistically achieve, and has used this understanding to truly tailor all of our sessions to meet those goals. She has already helped me build confidence, and her support not only drives me to succeed, but keeps me on track even outside of our sessions. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor, and it's clear she really cares about her clients.
Kristen is such a great yoga instructor. She takes the time to listen to your needs and provides routines based on those needs. I have learned so much from her about the balance of body, mind, and breathing from just a handful of sessions. I feel I am getting stronger and more flexible, which is what I am looking for. Thanks Kristen for your kindness and knowledge. Namaste.
Kristen is kind, motivating, and dedicated to helping others wherever they may be on their yoga journey. 10/10 would practice with her again!
Kristen always seems to know just what I need in each yoga session. She listens well and takes a holistic approach based on my specific needs. I really appreciate how accommodating she is when it comes to my chronic illness. Her encouragement and guidance in pushing my body just enough to find and challenge my limits while still being gentle helps me feel what my body is capable of. Even if I don't see the progress I'm making, Kristen is great about acknowledging where I've made improvement, which is very reassuring.
I went into my session feeling embarrassed, already defeated and feeling anxious. Kristen offered so much kindness and love with no judgement, she focused on confidence building and tailored the session to my needs. It was exactly what I needed.
