An ex-Brooklynite relocated to the central coast, Kristy combines east coast attitude with west coast chill. She believes that developing a personal practice (whether it's yoga, fitness, a combination of the two, or something else entirely) is more important now than ever. The idea of helping others develop their own practice is what lead her to complete her 200-hour teacher certification at Smiling Dog Yoga, Barre, and Fitness. Kristy loves to flow to hip hop and EDM and you're likely to hear one or both in her classes. Her alter ego is a mermaid.
Our yin yoga class is a contemplative and meditative practice using long-held floor postures and breath awareness to target deep fascial release. This is a tried and true way of increasing flexibility in the hips and spine. May include some standing poses to balance the practice. A slower paced class, great for those looking to increase flexibility.
