Yoga allows us to check in with ourselves and expand our realm of possibilities. My mission is to inspire and expose diverse communities and age groups to the restorative power of yoga.

“Every day should elevate us a little, broaden our attitudes, reduce our selfishness and makes us better masters over our own body, senses and mind.” – Swami Satchidananda

About Kirsten

IMG_5636I began practicing yoga in 2009 after graduating college. My loosely defined plans involved traveling and figuring something out career-wise along the way.   I spent several months in India which holds a special place in my heart as it was where the initial seed to become a yoga teacher was planted.

Following my travels I worked in diabetes, cardiology, cancer and neurology research. My professional work and personal passions have now merged and brought me to a place of wondrous fulfillment: helping individuals achieve optimum health, body & mind.

My approach to teaching is compassionate while direct and informative. I focus on the anatomy and use breath-centered flows to bring awareness to the body and mind.  I specialize in yoga for teenagers by using adapted breathing and meditation techniques to help cultivate mindfulness.  Yoga for teens focuses on relevant themes such as self-confidence, self-care,  kindness, compassion, anger, forgiveness and the yoga of eating.

I believe that it necessary to create an atmosphere where students can find his or her own way to and with yoga and it brings me joy to share the transformative power of yoga with you .
