Kristin practices self-care (self-love) with 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, Kristin is obsessed with the power and healing potential of food! She loves it all; from kitchari to fermented foods , from superfoods to roasted yams, from watermelon radishes to fish tacos, get in her belly!
Outside of teaching, mentoring and leading global yoga-teacher-trainings, you might find Kristin brewing water-kefir, picking snap peas off the vine, at the lake with her friends and a whole lotta wildling kids in tow, sipping a fabulous mushroom and fat infused coffee, or playing outdoors in the beauty of her surroundings in Squamish BC.
