What classes do you teach at Studio Bamboo?


How would you describe your teaching style?

Kristin’s classes involve meditation, sun salutations, twists, backbends, inversions, and balancing postures. She encourages students to listen to their bodies, focusing on the sensations received while moving through postures. As always, safety is paramount.

What type of student would benefit from your classes?

Kristin recognizes that we all have varying degrees of abilities. Flexibility and strength are not required! We all have to start somewhere. Showing up to class is more than half the battle.

What does yoga mean to you?

Yoga is a form of self-care and can lead to self-transformation. It means listening to your body as well as becoming aware of your thoughts; without this, moving through the postures is simply fitness.

What is your favorite asana and why?

That’s impossible for me to choose. It’s like picking a favorite child.
