Kristy has been practicing yoga for more than half her life and teaching since 2009. She grew up in Hermosa Beach and draws inspiration for her teaching career from her background as an elite dancer. Kristy has completed over 1,000 hours of yoga teacher trainings with Julie Rader and focuses on creative sequencing, safe alignment and the breath + body connection. Kristy says, “My time on the mat is my own personal therapy. No matter what is going on in my life, good or bad, when I step onto my mat and tune into my breath everything is right again.” Kristy teaches mainly Vinyasa flow classes, specializing in alignment, anatomy, chakras, prenatal, yin and meditation. Kristy is also experienced in therapeutic yoga, as she worked in physical therapy for 4 years. Kristy’s love for yoga is never ending. When she's not teaching, she's practicing, continuing her education with trainings, reading as much as she can and exploring the world. Kristy leads annual 200-hour teacher trainings for students wanting to become teachers or those just wanting to deepen their yoga practice. You can find Kristy on the mat or at the beach!
