Hi there, I'm Krista!
I am so excited to meet you!
I am a 200 hr Yoga Instructor, Certified Personal Trainer through ACE and a certified group fitness instructor through AFFA. I currently live in Washington DC, but I grew up in Northern California.
I started teaching group fitness classes in 2007, soon after my second son was born, and am frequently looking to expand my knowledge further through additional classes and certifications. I have a passion for the life and mind changing potential of both yoga and fitness.
I completed my yoga training through Sky House Yoga, a donation-based wellness collective in Silver Spring, Maryland in 2013. The Sky House Teacher training program strives to teach students through a multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary study in Vinyasa-based Hatha yoga. In 2015, through a 30 hour immersion course, I continued my training in the discipline of Yin Yoga, falling in love with Yin's ability to provide necessary balance in life. In addition to many group fitness certifications, I completed my personal training certification in 2020 and I love how that learning informs the way I teach both fitness and yoga. I started my little zoom studio in 2020 and have been so very surprised to find out how much I love teaching on zoom. I never expected to teach online, or to love it, but it turns out I find teaching this way deeply rewarding. I am excited to share my ever deepening love for yoga and fitness with others and truly believe that movement helps us live our best lives.
When I'm not sharing my deep love for yoga and fitness with you all, I love adventuring. Bike rides, cross-country ski trips, backpacking, canoeing, road trips, wandering through the woods...give me adventure and I will go. I also love to cook and bake super yummy food, preferably for others (and myself!)...which is a good thing, because I have two teenage boys who eat like...well...teenage boys.
Gathering folks, sitting around a table together and watching people connect with each other are some of my greatest joys. When I started doing retreats years ago I quickly realized I was able to merge so many things that bring me joy in one amazing package...adventure, connection, gathering, movement...these are the things I love, it makes me so very happy to share them with you.
