Kirsten’s first introduction to yoga was finding a stack of old books and manuals that offered her a glimpse into a system of practice that resonated with her deeply. Home practice and self study brought her to a 200 hour foundational training with Diane Kovanda and Kind Yoga School in 2011. Currently, Kirsten studies Embodyoga with developer Patty Townsend, and completed her 300 hour certification under Patty’s guidance. Kirsten attended a 90 hour prenatal teacher training in 2017 with Corrine Andrews, owner of Yoga Center Amherst and developer of Birthing Mama, an online program for prenatal yoga and wellness. As a teacher, Kirsten encourages students to find an inquiry into body and breath, and to take those messages off the mat and into the day.
Kirsten attended Spa Tech Institute of Massage Therapy and is a 650 hour Licensed Massage Therapist as of March 2017. Through therapeutic touch, she aspires to provide an embodied sense of wholeness and wellbeing.
