Kris grew up a dancer and choreographer, then began teaching group fitness and yoga in 1998. She has always been interested in the emotional and physical release/healing that can come through moving the body in order to move energy. She sees yoga as a practice for self-care and cultivating clarity and joy. On and off the mat, Kris aims to remind people of their beauty, power and worth. In her classes you can expect clear alignment cues, a fluid pace and an uplifting message. She invites you to come as you are –– and promises you’ll leave feeling a little less reactive, robotic or tense… and a little more open, hopeful and self-assured. Kris is an RYT500 with Yoga Alliance. She completed her teacher trainings in the styles of Hatha, Vinyasa and Anusara Yoga. She is also an Interior Designer, mom to 2 kiddos and 2 dogs, and part-time booty-droppin' hip hop dancer.
