As a Professional Modern Dancer and Licensed Massage Therapist, Kristine has found the rich practice of Yoga to be a natural extension of her love of movement and the healing arts. She harbors a deep passion for health and healing and has worked at holistic day spas, organic vegetable farms, whole foods markets, yoga studios, and presently from her dedicated in-home healing space in the Highlands neighborhood of NW Denver. For the past decade she has studied Anusara Yoga, inspired by the profoundly therapeutic benefits of its detailed attention to postural alignment and balanced muscular action. As a Certified Anusara Yoga instructor, she incorporates this methodology into her uniquely styled Restorative Yoga classes and therapeutic offerings. She is also influenced heavily not only by her massage therapy training but by the somatic practices she has explored over her many years as a dancer including kinesiology, release techniques, Body-Mind Centering, Alexander technique, Feldenkrais, and Pilates. She currently offers Restorative Yoga Classes, Workshops, and Teacher Trainings at Vital Yoga and is thrilled to join the Samadhi Yoga community.
