“Kristi’s Journey to Yoga and Mindfulness: From Fitness Instructor to Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher”

Listen here…

Show Notes


In this episode we chat all about our host Kristi’s story. We talk about how she made her way from being a personal trainer/fitness instructor to a yoga and mindfulness teacher, for kids and adults.

Kristi graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Pacific Lutheran University. After working with adults for years in the fitness industry, she shifted her focus to working with children after having two of her own. She ran fitness classes for kids in her community, and also worked as a preschool teacher. During her time as a preschool teacher, she used music, movement and yoga in her class. She attended her first Kidding Around Yoga teacher training and was able to incorporate much of what she learned into her classroom as well.

She believes yoga can help with body awareness and developing physical literacy skills. Having had her own yoga practice for years, she decided to go back for her 200 hr yoga teacher training and she became a trainer for KAY. Her passion for sharing yoga with children and adults led her to continue her studies and obtain an additional 300 hr certification, as well as her advanced children’s yoga teacher training.

Her goal is to help people of all ages understand the benefits of yoga and mindfulness. She enjoys leading trainings for KAY and professional development workshops for educators to help them implement yoga, meditation and mindfulness into their classrooms.
