About Kristin



Short Biography:

૱I believe I am here to teach you how to love yourself.  Did anything come up for you when you read that sentence?  Whether or not, here I come… I’d like to share simple and accessible Self-care practices with you that will inevitably lead you to Self-love.  I know first hand, as I be/do/have, live and breathe these practices.  I am talking about yoga, meditation, yoga-nidra, breathwork and living ayurvedically, which means to live according to the daily and seasonal rhythms.  

Ayurveda (ayur – life, veda – knowledge) is intuitive and within reach; it’s literally considered kitchen medicine, simply treat the body with food first.   That said, I am obsessed with the power and healing potential of food, mushrooms, and herbs.  I love it all; from kitchari to medicinal mushrooms, to fermented foods, to superfoods to roasted yams, from watermelon radishes to fish tacos, to oil pulling with coconut oil…

Outside of teaching yoga, mentoring and teaching yoga-teacher-trainings, you might find me brewing water-kefir, picking snap peas off the vine, at the lake with my friends and a whole lotta wildling kids in tow, sipping a fabulous mushroom and fat infused coffee, or playing outdoors in the beauty of my surroundings in Squamish BC. 

In other news, I am an innovator and entrepreneur through and true;

in 2002 I co-­founded NeoAlpine Yoga, Whistler’s first Yoga Studio which is now a YYoga studio which I directed until 2010,

in 2012 I founded Tapasya Hot Yoga (pronounced tah-pah-syah). Tapasya literally means to be with intensity of the sake of transformation.  Tapasya is a spiritually uplifting, alignment-based method of Hot-Hatha and Hatha-Vinyasa yoga. Although each studio has branded their Hot class differently, Tapasya Hot-Hatha + Hatha-Vinyasa inspired classes and teacher trainings are being offered in the UK, Europe, and Canada,

in Sept 2015 I co-founded Squamish Water Kefir Co. Water kefir is a centuries-old fermented drink that is packed full of the probiotics and beneficial enzymes that our bodies love.  We are proud of our delicious product and its ability to bring healthy probiotics and digestive enzymes to kitchen tables in our community and beyond.  Kefir by the way is pronounced “kuh-feer”.


“When I am in right alignment, a beautiful song emerges.”
