Kristen began her yoga practice in 1990 as a young model in Paris. From there, she went on to learn from a variety of disciplines- all of which continue to teach her today. As a student of Shamanism, a Certified Reiki practitioner, Hypnotherapist and Kundalini yoga instructor, Kristen brings many disciplines together via her practice. Specializing in Khalsa Way Pregnancy Yoga since the homebirth of her 1st child in 2001, Kristen has gone on to create numerous Health and Wellness projects. Most notably, YOGA FOR YOUR PREGNANCY with Yoga Journal and Lamaze. Chosen by Pregnancy Magazine for an Editor’s Choice Award for “BEST YOGA VIDEO”, Kristen demonstrates gentle yoga methods that show moms-to-be how to maintain strength, flexibility, and stamina throughout their pregnancies, and breathing and meditation exercises to help keep focused during the birthing process. Yoga for Your Pregnancy includes exercises for both beginner and advanced yoga students, with special poses for the birthing room. The DVD also features a special post-natal practice to help women get back into shape after they give birth.
