Social proof: testimonials

“Kristen was my prenatal yoga teacher throughout my pregnancy. Her style of pregnancy yoga is so much more than modified asana. It's preparation for labor and motherhood. Mental, physical and emotional preparation. It was because of her class that I was able to have the perfect home birth that I always wanted. When Kristen announced that she would offer a teacher training course, I jumped at the chance! I'm proud to say that I'm now a certified prenatal yoga teacher. I'm beyond thrilled to empower other women the way that she empowered me. Kristen is a wealth of knowledge in the areas of pregnancy, Kundalini, Reiki, Hypnotherapy, relationships, and much, much more. Long story short, you want this woman in your life. She will blow your mind wide open and you will love her for it! ”

“I met Kristen through her yoga classes and immediately knew she was an exceptional human being. So when I saw she was offering Reiki training I jumped at the opportunity to train with her. 3 Reiki trainings, 2 yoga teacher trainings (200RYT and RPYT), reiki/hypnosis sessions, and 1 year later, and I can confidently say that Kristen's trainings have transformed me - her trainings invited me to find deeper meaning in my life, allowing me to become a better and more fulfilled human being in every possible way. I could not recommend Kristen enough. Her teachings are incredibly informative, empowering, and authentic. She has a way about her that no other teacher/mentor can match - she is a true inspiration. We are blessed to have Kristen in our world!”
