Barbara was excellent...very patient and helpful. I loved what she said at the end. At my request, she tried to text it to me. As she suspected, it did not come through. Would you please ask her to re-send it either via text to (716)861-2303 or to my email email@example.com? Thank you. Sharon Townsend
Kristy was born and raised in NJ, but has lived in PA, MD, MA and recently moved to NC in November. She has over 20 years’ experience as a group fitness instructor, and is a 500 RYT yoga teacher. Currently, Kristy is finishing up year 2 of a 3 year yoga therapy certification at Yoga Life Institute, an IAYT accredited school.
As a yoga teacher, Kristy has the ability to lead a wide range of classes, provide guided meditation to center students, and customize instruction for individual skill, experience, and body type. In addition, she is flexible, encouraging, and understanding with all students. Kristy has a love for making her classes inclusive so everyone can join, and while they are challenging, she makes them safe, fun, and light-hearted. Kristy specializes in working with athletes and older populations in her private yoga practice.
More health care practitioners are starting to include yogic techniques in their approach to healing -- and more yoga teachers give a therapeutic intention to their teaching. Kristy has personal experience using yoga to help her recover from a major, life altering accident. She has recovered and excelled when many doctors thought she might not walk properly again to go on compete in long distance triathlons. People who have never tried yoga before are starting to consider including yoga in their treatment plan and athletic pursuits. A differentiation that Kristy brings to classes that she teaches are her healing intentions, experiences and ability to use yoga not only as a healing technique but also as an athletic injury prevention technique.
