Kristen began practicing yoga regularly while working as a high school science teacher. As her practice grew deeper she found herself wanting to share the experience she was having with others. Kristen has always considered herself a teacher, what she has taught has changed throughout the years but when she found yoga it was like coming home. It all made sense and she knew she wanted to share this practice with others. Deciding to leave her teaching job she set off to Pavones Yoga Center in Pavones, Costa Rica; it was here she completed her multidimensional teacher training under Indira Kate Kalmbach. Kristen then returned to Massachusetts and began teaching yoga.
