Kristen grew up in California and was lucky enough to first try yoga with some great teachers near the beaches of Santa Monica and Encinitas. She became a volunteer at her local studio to learn from her teachers and to dive deeper into her own practice. She did the same when she moved to London, volunteering and eventually completed her teacher training with the team at Hotpod Yoga. She enjoys sharing the practice of working the body, and calming the mind with others in her yoga classes.
She has witnessed firsthand the effects of stress from her background in healthcare, and believes that the combination of yoga and breathing is one of the best and easiest self-healing practices we can use on a daily basis. Her goal in hosting any yoga class is to provide a safe space for everyone to chill out and relax, while also moving the body and working up a sweat!
