I will help you turn your blind spots into sweet spots and set yourself apart as a YOU-nique and thriving modern day yoga teacher.

 

Do you relate to these challenges?

  • “Not good enough” You compare yourself to other teachers  – and hold the belief that you’ll never be as talented,
  • “They hate me!” You are unclear about who your right tribe aka ideal student is,
  • “No money, mo’ problems” You are struggling to make ends meet in an over-saturated market,
  • “Oh frig!” Teaching mixed levels classes overwhelms you,
  • ”Oh crap, she’s got a knee injury!” You are nervous about causing injury or unsure how to take care of someone with special needs like pregnancy or specific injuries,
  • “I know nothing” You feel like you are losing the knowledge and skills you acquired during those potent hours of teacher training,
  • “Bartending is destroying my life” You aren’t finding the time to maintain your own yoga and meditation practice.

 

I will help you:

  • Develop your YOU-nique voice and YOU-nique offering as a teacher,
  • Define your core message and identify your ideal student avatar,
  • Build community and student retention whether you are teaching one-to-one or group classes,
  • Offer modifications and variations in all levels classes,
  • Teach safe, and accessible yoga for every-body with clarity and confidence,
  • Create dynamic themes and sequences that motivate, uplift and inspire your students,
  • Maintain a regular yoga, meditation and overall self-care practice.

Depending on your current challenges and goals, I can work with you in a short burst or over a longer period in which we work with your specific needs and intentions.

My Vision:

I give you the short-cut to unleashing your teaching genius.

My Promise:

I will meet you where you are and take you to a higher place in your teaching (and in your life) – all in alignment with your highest purpose, vision and YOU-ness.

We humans don’t know what we don’t know. We can’t see our own blind spots.

It will be my job to get you to your “don’t know,” and to recognize the blind spots that are keeping you stuck and in the way of you being the best version of you that only YOU can be.

What you get from me every time we meet?

 

  • When your doubtful shadow side rears it’s ugly head I will help you work with that aspect of you, and rise beyond it.
  • We will explore your growing edge and I will give you powerful (yet achievable) next steps, and practices to work with.
  • My full presence, love, expertise and support.
  • My support between sessions, you can email me anytime and I will respond within 48- hours.
  • You will be lovingly pushed, stretched and transformed (physically and metaphorically).
  • I will hold you accountable as a teacher and as a student. Plan to be in session outside of our meetings.

 

Are you ready to hone your teaching genius and set yourself apart?

 

  • Sessions are 1 hour long (and you can count on me spending time preparing for our sessions outside of this precious hour).
  • We will meet on Skype, or in person when possible. Skype sessions will be recorded and you will receive a copy of the recording to listen to as often as you like.
  • Payment must be paid in advance through paypal, email transfer or in person.
  • Please note, scheduled meetings require a 24-hr cancellation otherwise you will be charged for any missed appointments.

 

TESTIMONIALS

What others are saying:

“After 6 mentoring sessions with Kristin I have:
More focus, less inner critic.
Students who reflect my ideal student avatar.
2 more classes on the schedule AND got to choose my preferred time slot.
For the first time I fully booked my registered class series a week prior to start.”
Jules Jeffery, Australia

“Kristin taught me how to feel the postures from the inside out. She has a special gift with people and with words that make people see her as a mentor rather than just a teacher. She nourishes her students with her knowledge, past experience, passion, compassion and quirkiness!”
Nikos Georgosopoulos, London UK

“Kristin allowed me explore the playful and dynamic side to yoga.  Kristin encouraged each of us to find our own voice and expression in our teaching and in practice.  Kristin is humble and honest about her own challenges, and she has street cred from her many years of teaching yoga, owning her own studio, and training teachers.
With humour, authenticity and her balls-to-the-wall personality, Kristin brings a great deal of personal and professional yoga experience to her students.”
Katie Bibbs MBA, BSc, Montreal, Quebec

“Kristin’s philosophy and approach to the practice is consistent and well-considered. I learned about the importance of continuous investigation. I received a good foundation in anatomy and how to teach the poses safely for a lifelong practice.“
Jillian Browning, High School Teacher, Vancouver BC

“Kristin finds a way to communicate so that others understand, she has a natural ability to read and empower others. Her approach is honest, and direct, I was able to untangle some myths in my own body which translate clearly into my teaching. Refining language and thought patterns have been a huge for me, I am more confident teaching and class sequencing has become more fun and creative.”
May Nogoy, Hong Kong

“Kristin’s 200-hour training gave me a strong foundation and confidence to start teaching. I was impressed by Kristin’s expertise in anatomy, sequencing, history and philosophy of yoga. Her sense of humour and clear and colourful demonstrations of optimal alignment allowed us to see exactly what we needed to do in order for us to be ready to guide our future students to their optimal expressions of asanas.”
Carl Larouche BA & BEd (UBC) MA (McGill)
